India, my country, the land comprising of such rich culture, diverse people from various religions and the multi cuisine which it has to offer is something which is out of the world. I have traveled a bit in and around in the national circuit earlier to North east and Ladakh (which already have their entries in my blog) and the only reason that I never had a separate post on the places that I had visited earlier is because I never used to write blogs at that time. Better late than never….right? I have tried putting across most of the captures that I had, in this post and I am so happy that I finally did it.
To start with I have the below shots that were taken during my travel around the Golden Triangle (Delhi, Agra and Rajasthan) of India. Rajasthan is known for it’s innumerable Palaces, sand dunes and it’s rich culture. We decided to visit few of the palaces and temples. The first few pics are of the Ranakpur temple which is basically a Jain temple. Any Jain temple would have these numerous carvings on their walls, pillars and ceilings and so is this one too but the most fascinating thing about it is its 1444 pillars. Each of the pillars is differently carved as in no two pillars are the same…,,amazing. The temple is so huge and beautiful.
We did visit the famous Kumbhalgarh fort too. With a wall over 22 miles long, the fort is among the largest wall complex in the world, and the second largest fort in Rajasthan after Chittor Fort.
We then visited to Agra to witness one of the wonders of the world, the Taj Mahal. The beauty of the monument cannot be explained in words and pictures would do more justice here. Viewing Taj Mahal on a full moon night is an experience like no other in the world….priceless !!!
Then was the time to visit the capital of India, Delhi which was short and sweet.
Then comes few pics of the God’s own country, Kerala. First few pics are of the back waters of Kumarakom and the homestay where in I stayed.
If you visit Kerala, Wayanad is a must visit. The lush green tea estates at some good altitudes is something which should not be missed.
I have been bought up in Mumbai and was there for almost 10 long years. But that time we never had a camera to click pictures for ourselves. And then when I had one i never could visit Mumbai again. Then somehow one fine day as they say when the almighty wants you to visit him, things get materialize automatically and I visited Mumbai for a date with our own Lalbhag cha Raja. It was a dream come true for me and my mom and all thanks to Nimmi Di for that.
