Bhedaghat - Home of the 81 Yoginis
The Narmada flows down the mountains , carving out a path for herself as she makes her way down to the
plains of Central India. She cascades from the rocks, her fine spray making it
appear as if billows of smoke (dhuan) arise from the flowing streams of wat...

Discovering Marine Life at Girgaum Chowpatty, Mumbai
Mumbai’s beaches . The first word that comes to mind when we
think of them, sadly, is ‘filth’. Over the years, we have so got used to seeing
our beaches in a mess, that we rarely give a thought to the marine life teeming
there. Our eyes were opened to the i...

Paintings at the Pundrikji-ki-Haveli, Jaipur
I first read about Pundrikji-ki-Haveli on the ASI Jaipur circle website. It is said to be the home of Pandit Ratnakar Bhatt, the royal purohit (priest and advisor) at the
court of Maharaj Sawai Jai Singh II, the founder of Jaipur. As the story goes,
the pan...

The Temple of Neelkanth at Alwar, Rajasthan
Deep inside the Sariska Tiger Reserve , a narrow road led us to the foothills of a mountain. There, it abruptly stopped, and we wondered how we were expected to go on. Our driver looked at me accusingly, surely blaming me for getting us all lost, in search ...

Experiencing the Wild at Kanha National Park
Summer is when I travel . This year, our #Summertrip was
shorter than usual, and now, back in sweltering Mumbai, my thoughts are still
in the gorgeous wilderness of Kanha National Park, where the sun’s heat didn’t
bother us. Indeed, on our early morning jau...

Abhaneri - The once radiant city
From the outside, the structure looked unimpressive. A couple of old men were seated on a table, there was no ticket counter, and above all, no visitors. “Are we in the right place?” was the question foremost on our mind. Our hesitation must have been obvio...

My Narendra Bhawan Experience
From the outside, it appears to be a Haveli. The traditional architecture, with red sandstone, is seen all over Bikaner. It is only when we step in, that we realise that there is more to Narendra Bhawan than meets the eye! Narendra Bhawan The original struc...

The Royal Legacy of Bikaner
The story of Bikaner often starts with the disagreement
between Rao Jodha of Jodhpur and his sixth son, Rao Bika. A stray comment by
his father led him to the wild land ruled by the Jats, overcome them, and set
up a new kingdom. The story is filled with emo...

The Havelis of Bikaner - A Photo Post
The lanes are narrow , twisting and turning amidst buildings old
and new. Crumbling old structures with intricate workmanship stand side by side
with art deco buildings, and more modern constructions, which follow no
particular style. Autos, bicycles, motor...

Temples of Bikaner - Part 4: The Laleshwar Mahadev Temple (Shivbari)
The massive walls completely shield the temple from view, and
it first appears to be a fort or a citadel. Even when we enter the gate, the
central structure doesn’t conform to our ideas of what a temple should look
like. Built on a high platform, with an op...
