Mount Everest, Border of Nepal and Tibetan Autonomous Region:
The highest mountain peak in world stands tall at 8,848 metres or 29,029 ft. These numbers don't truly sink in unless we translate them into more familiar, more humungous distance units. This height translates to 8.85 kms or 5.5 miles. Till date, it has been summited approximately 7,000 times by about 4,300 people. This shot is taken during a Paro-Delhi flight.

Jain Temple, Ranakpur, Rajasthan, India:
A copperplate in the temple documents its inception well. The construction of the temple began in 1437 CE and the temple was finally fully constructed in 1458 CE. This 550+ year-old temple was a result of a divine vision and it honours Adinath - the 1st Jain Tirathankar.
Just over 90 kms from Udaipur, the temple is a must-see. It is supported by 1444 exquisitely crafted marble pillars.

Baoli, Nahargarh Fort, Jaipur:
The fort was built over 280 years ago. This Baoli (step well) had a functional role of catering to the water needs of this fort during usual harsh summers of Rajasthan. Famous song - Masti Ki Paathshala from hit Bollywood film - Rang De Basanti was shot here. Courtesy that, this step well is now also known as Masti Ki Paathshala

Westminster Bridge, London, UK:
While the city is a potpourri of the classical and the modern, here's one place that brings it out starkly. You will find the Victorian lampposts and the iconic BigBen rubbing shoulders with cutting edge fashion.

CrusadersFortress, Akko or Acre, Israel:
While the ruins of ancient and medieval civilisations have been excavated the world over, here's a complete township excavated in Israel that has been mostly intact. Little wonder it earned a UNESCO inscription in 2001.

Anuradhapura, SriLanka:
Considered to be the first capital of Sri Lanka (from 4th century CE to 11 century CE), Anuradhapura lies 205 kms North-East of Colombo. The excavated ruins consist of three types of structure – monastic buildings, Dagobas (bell shaped masonry or Stupa), and Pokunas (bathing tanks). The largest Dagoba (Ruwanwelisaya) is 1100 feet in circumference. Here, dressing up Buddha happens 3-4 times a day as worshippers from far and wide bring 1100 feet long cloth and drape the Dagoba along its circumference. Since the belief is that Buddha's relics are inside the Dagoba, this ritual is symbolic of treating the Dagoba as Buddha and dressing it as a Buddhist monk. It got inscribed as a UNESCO site in 1982.

Red Fort, Delhi, India:
Built by Shah Jahan, the Mughal Emperor famous for building Taj Mahal, the fort is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The red sandstone facade of the fort (Pic 1) surrounds magnificent marble structures of the palace inside - RangMahal (Palace of Colours - Pic 2) - an erstwhile Harem, Diwan-e-Khas (House of Lords - Pic 3) and MotiMasjid (Pearl Mosque). A marble canal (Nahr-e-Bahisht) crisscrosses the sprawling palace grounds and is tastefully dotted with marble fountains. The only sandstone structure inside is Diwan-e-Aam (House of Commons - Pic 4).
