Dojechałem pociągiem do Darjeeling. Dociera tam górska wąskotorówka wpisana na listę UNESCO. Niekiedy ciągnie ją mały parowóz. Do tego widać z niej Kanczendzongę. Albo nie widać nic, bo mgła. Przez trzy dni wpatrywałem się w mleko nad herbacianymi polami. Kiedy wreszcie odsłoniły się Himalaje, siedziałem już w taksówce i odjeżdżałem z Darjeeling. #turystapolski #polishtourist #Darjeeling #india #darjeelinglimited #DarjeelingHimalayanRailway #travelphotography #travel #backpacking #DHR #wesanderson #himalayanrailway #worldheritagesite #picturesofindia #locomotive #steamengine #toytrain #indiapictures #discover_india #indiagram #steamengine #pociąg #pociągi #dworzec #kolej #lokomotywa #lokomotywaparowa #parowóz #exploreindia #discoverindia

"When Vishnu had incarnated in the form of fish to defeat the Somkasura - someone who had stolen the Vedas and hidden them in seas, after retreiving that Vishnu became arrogant and started creating havoc in the seas. To relieve sea, Shiva took the form of crane and ate off Vishnu in fish form to relieve him back to go back to his abode" Socio-politicall interpretation - Vaishnav Brahmins living close to the seas were very closeted about sharing their knowledge of Vedas, getting arrogant about it and also demeaning other forms of worship. Shaivite Brahmins gave them some humility lessons or at least wrote down scriptures stating so My interpretation - even gods can make mistakes, we are just human ;-) pic from the main Mandapam of Ekambareshwara Temple, Kanchipuram #tamilnadutourism #tamilculture #arrogance #vedas #fish #crane #veda #beingindian #hinduism #heritagephotography #indianculture #sanskriti #bharat #backpackerpilgrim #exploreindia #indianculture #incredibleindfia #spiritualindia #traveldiaesries #backpackerdiaries #instaindia #instaindian #instaculture #pilgrimlife #discoveryindia #travelreflections #mythology #india_gram #travelogue #travelog

#Repost @kitemanja ・・・ Frozen memories of Indo-Sino War of 1962 in Tawang. Scattered under the snow clad mountains are the army bunkers made by the Indian Forces to guard its frontiers from the invading Chinese army. When in Tawang you will see a lot of such bunkers which speak loud about the bravery and valor of our defence forces. . . . . . #bunkers #snow #mountains #history #indianarmy #army #warstories #tawang #exploreindia #northeastindia #arunachal #arunachalpradesh #destination_wild #WhereIsNortheast #travelrealindia #manvswild #landscapephotography #india_gram #india_everyday #bestthingsinindia #storiesofindia #visualsofindia #india_clicks #india_ig . . . @bituchetiaphotography

Now since we were already at Hornimon circle it made total sense to shoot some pictures at the Asiatic Library, its monumental stairs and white pillars. But -as some of you who have been there recently might agree- it was way too crowded to even enter its premises. It being a weekend did not help our case either. If not the Asiatic library, we still had the much ignored -by the selfie seekers- vicinity of the Hornimon circle. So there we stood me and the Mrs pondering over which bylane to explore next - more like we are lost and which bylane would lead us to some place to grab lunch - we came across this building facade. All washed up in the rains and looking as clean as possible. 3 of 9 PS. Unfortunately, instagram allows only a specific vertical dimension to the photographs, so had to crop this image a bit. The full uncropped image is in stories, if that is what you are looking for. #_woi #streetphotographyindia #hindustanpictures #dslrofficial #streetsofindia #clickshotindia #official_click_hub #instaindia #travelgram #horniman #theuncommonbox #indgeo #architecture #mumbai #exploreindia #canonofficial #photographers_of_india #travel #city #mumbai #igers #maibhisadakchap #iwanderwhy #instagood #instalike #_soimumbai #streetphotography #streetphoto @indiangeo @pictures.of.india @worldphotographersclub @officialphotographyhub @photographers.of.india @buddingphotographers_ofindia @official_photographers_hub @indian_photography_hub_ @click_india_click @india_undiscovered @photographers_ofindia @india.clicks @india @canonasia

Popularly known as Jagannath Dham, Shree Kshetra, Purushottam Kshetra, Nilachal, Nilagiri, Niladri & Shankha Kshetra, the Shree Jagannath Temple is an important Hindu temple dedicated to Lord Jagannath Mahaprabhu/Lord Nilamadhava, a form of Lord Vishnu, located on the eastern coast of India, at Puri in the state of Odisha... The temple is an important pilgrimage destination and one of the four great "Char Dham" pilgrimage sites, found at India's four cardinal points... The other three being Badrinath in the north(Chamoli, Uttarakhand), Dwarka in the west(Devbhoomi Dwarka, Gujarat) & Rameshwaram in the south(Ramanathapuram, Tamil Nadu)... was rebuilt in 1161 CE, on the site of an earlier temple, by King Anantavarman Chodaganga Deva, first of the Eastern Ganga Dynasty... The main temple is 214 feet(65 metres) high & the temple complex covers an area of over 400,000 square feet(37,000 square metres)... It represents Kalingan architectural style... Lord Jagannath Mahaprabhu, his brother Lord Balabhadra & their sister Devi Subhadra constitute the main trinity of deities worshipped at the temple... The temple iconography depicts the holy trio sitting on the bejewelled platform or "Ratnavedi" in the inner sanctum... The Sudarshan Chakra, deities of Madanmohan, Sridevi & Vishwadhatri are also placed on the Ratnavedi...The temple icons of Lord Jagannath, Lord Balabhadra, Devi Subhadra and Sudarshan Chakra are made from sacred Neem logs known as "Daru"... Depending on the season, the deities are adorned in different garbs and jewels... Worship of these deities pre-date the temple structure & may have originated in an ancient tribal shrine... . Jagannath Swami Nayana-Patha-Gami Bhavatu Me... Jai Jagannath!!! . A happy Rath Yatra to all... . . . #temple #temples #architecture #natgeotravellerindia #natgeoindia #indiaphotosociety #indiapictures #indiatravelgram #travelbugindia #travelrealindia #indiaview #indiaclicks #discover_india #indiabeats #india_gram #yourshot_india #storiesofindia #lonelyplanetindia #indiadiaries #_woi #india_ig #incredibleindia #photographers_of_india #indianshutterbugs #exploreindia #travelindia #desi_diaries #wanderlust #travel #travelphotography
Nakhoda Masjid is the principal & largest mosque of Kolkata... It is located in the Chitpur area of the Burrabazar business district in Central Kolkata, at the intersection of Zakaria Street & Rabindra Sarani... The mosque was built as an imitation of the mausoleum of Mughal Emperor Akbar at Sikandra, Agra by Kutchi Memon Jamat, a small community of Sunni Muslims from Kutch... Abdur Rahim Osman, a leader of the Kutchi Memon Jamat, who funded the building was a shipping prince... The mosque was named "Nakhoda" meaning "Mariner"... Hence the name Nakhoda Masjid, or Mariner's Mosque... The foundation stone was laid on September 11, 1926... The total cost incurred for the construction was 1,500,000 Indian Rupees... The mosque has 3 domes & 2 minarets which are 151 feet high... There are an additional 25 smaller minarets which range from 100 feet to 117 feet high...

The prayer hall of the mosque has a capacity of 10,000... . . . #mosque #architecture #natgeotravellerindia #natgeoindia #indiaphotosociety #indiapictures #indiatravelgram #travelbugindia #travelrealindia #indiaview #indiaclicks #indiadiaries #discover_india #indiabeats #india_ig #india_gram #yourshot_india #incredibleindia #_woi #exploreindia #travelindia #onlyinbengal #ig_calcutta #sokolkata #calcuttacacophony #amarkolkata #hellokolkata #calcalling #travel #travelphotography
The main entrance of Nakhoda Masjid which leads to the huge prayer hall replicates the Buland Darwaza of Fatehpur Sikri, Agra, built by Akbar in 1601 A.D. to commemorate his victory over Gujarat...
