About the city-

My experience-

First i’ll talk about the famous holy river ‘Ganga’.Ganga is main attraction there.I first went to rishikesh when i was only 10yr. old & i’m still continuing this every year.I will never forget my first trip to rishikesh because i have never been to this kind of place before so i was so excited.I experienced that i liked rishikesh more than haridwar.Rishikesh is more peaceful & less chaotic city.There are two bridges over ganga,famous one is called as ‘Lakshman Jhula’ & another one is ‘Ram Jhula’.I always use ram jhula or the boats to cross the river.

When i was crossing the jhula for the first time i had experienced a strange tranquillity there.When i reached to the centre of jhula & look down towards the river,it was so deep,bluish green clear water was flowing very peacefully,soothing air was touching me & i had goose bumps.I had never seen this scene before & never ever felt like this.It was amazing even today it makes me Gung ho!
On the other side of river there were lots of temples,shops of very attractive things made up of metal,garment shops & amazing variety of street food.
As i told you before it’s a never ending trip so i’ll tell you some other interesting facts about rishikesh in my next blog.
Thankyou for reading.Stay tuned.
Wish you all a Merry Christmas & a very happy new year in advance.

Gurudwara Bangla Sahib

Hello everyone!!!Today i’m gonna tell you one of my favourite place in delhi which i have visited many times.

Yeah,It’s Gurudwara Bangla Sahib.
About-
It’s a sikh gurudwara or sikh house of worship.The eighth Sikh Guru,Guru Har Krishan resided at Bangla Sahib which was originally a bungalow belonging to Raj Jai Singh.During that time,there was a small pox & cholera epidemic,& Guru Har Krishna helped the suffering by giving aid & fresh water from the well at this house.Soon he too contracted the illness & eventually died.A small tank was constructed by Raja Jai Singh over the well,it’s water is now revered as having healing properties & is taken by sikhs throughout the world back to their homes.

 Experience-

As i told you it’s a beautiful place.The ground include the gurudwara,a kitchen,a large pond,a school & an art gallery.I have visited this place many times.It’s white in color with gold embeded inside the main area.
As we entered in gurudwara we saw there was a shoe house in basement.The area was big & there were many sevadhari who serving.

We kept our footware their & move ahead.We covered our head before entering into the gurudwara.The hall was air conditioned.There were group of 4-5 people who chanting sacred words continously.This all was very peaceful.The ceiling,walls,pillars & even fans everything inside was very royal & were golden in color.

People were sitting there & worshiping.When we came out from the gurudwara,we saw a pond downstairs.We went their.There were fishes in holy water of pond.

People were blowing the candles there.Then we went for prasad.We took a token & through the token we had a full plate of halwa(prasad).It was very delectable.At another side,there were a langar hall.As with all sikh gurudwaras,the concept of langar is practiced & all people,regardless of race & religion may eat in the kitchen(langar hall).Many people were gathering outside the hall & waiting for their number.The langar hall were air conditioned too.

The complex also houses a higher secondary school,Baba Baghel Singh Museum,a library & a hospital.

There were many plants & trees & all were well maintained.We visited all over the complex,took many pictures & sat there for sometime.I felt tranquality there.

Trip to Taj Mahal(part-3)

Hey guys!Happy winters.Hope you guys are doing fine…me too.So,here is the another part of my trip to Taj Mahal.

After spending some good time to our mysterious place,we took leave from there & started our journey towards our main destination.We took yamuna expressway.On our way,we had our lunch at Quila(restaurent).Finally,we reached agra.We bought tickets & entered into the main area of Taj Mahal.
About Taj Mahal-

About the history of Taj Mahal ,i have told you in part-1.Now about TajMahal,it comes an area of 42 acres in total.The entire Taj complex consists of five major constituents,namely-•main gateway       •gardens•mosque•rest house & • main mausoleum(Rauza).

The main tomb of Taj Mahal stands on a square platform that was raised 50meter above the river bank.The four minarets on each corner of this square are detached.The western side of the main tomb has the mosque & on the eastern side is the rest house.

A shadowy burial crypt inside the Taj Mahal houses the tombs of Mumtaz Mahal & Shah Jahan himself who was buried there after he died.Above these tombs is the main chamber that has the false tomb.Calligraphic inscriptions of the ninety nine names of Allah can also be found on the sides of actual tomb of Mumtaz Mahal.

Out of the total area of 580 meter,the garden alone cover 300meter.
Timing to visit the Taj Mahal-

So readers,this is very important to know the timing of the place where you are going,to make your journey more comfortable.

•Taj Mahal is open from sunrise to sunset during normal operating days.

•Taj Mahal is closed on fridays for general viewing & is opened on friday afternoon only for those who have to attend prayers at the Taj Mosque.

•Tickets are available throughout the day from the western & eastern gate.& 8am to 5pm at southern gate.

•In night timings are 8:30pm to 12:30am(On full moon night ,two days before & two days after.)

We visited the TajMahal thoroughly.Many tourists were there including foreigners.They were enjoying their trip & taking pictures.We also took many pictures.Because you can not hold yourself by not capturing these beautiful moments spend with the Taj.

There were many small small counters of icecreams & snacks out side the Taj diameter.We ate our dinner in restaurent named Taj near the TajMahal.

So this is how once again i visited this place,gracefully.It just that whenever i look at it(TajMahal) i can not take my eyes off.I just fall in love with TajMahal again & again.

Hopefully,this blog will give you enough information so that you also go there & enjoy the place.

This is the end of my trip to TajMahal.I also want to know about you guys -how was your experience or if you want to go there in future.Tell me in the comment section.

Thankyou for reading.Stay tunned.

Sohna hot water spring(part-2)

Hey guys!wish you a very happy deepawali!!!

I’m back again with my journey to Taj but first i’ll tell you about that hidden place which we visited accidently.

It was a beautiful & peaceful morning with preaching sound of birds & cold breeze full of fresh oxygen.It was feeling like my lungs were very happy after inhaling fresh oxygen.We were going to see the tajmahal in the month of love…yeah! in feb. We settled down in our white car with hot home made breakfast & other things as well.We started our journey.After almost 2hrs. Of continuing driving with various type of loud music playing in car & giving a soulful treat to my eyes by watching out side the car window,we stopped to a tapri to dring some tea.
Shiv kund Hot water spring-

On the way we had our breakfast.We were moving towards our destination,suddenly nowhere our car took wrong path i mean we lost our way to agra & appeared on wrong road.We were trying to find right path by using google map & enquiring with localites.

Than we saw a sign board towards a big hill & we saw many people were going over there,we were surprised to see that.So we made up our mind to go there & make our journey more adventurous.We turned our car towards the hill & moved forward by the help of sign boards & people.Driving on hills give me goose bumps but i was enjoying it.At last we reached very near to our mysterious place.This place was sohna.Sohna is a small tourist place & known for its 
hot water spring & aravali hills.It’s about 30kms. away from rajiv chowk,gurugram(Haryana) on delhi-alwar route.

We parked our car on some plain area & start walking.There were a narrow street which were going downword,we took that road & moved forward.There were many shops of food & other things.Then we saw a very big & beautiful temple that was our destination,finally for a hidden place.Many people were gathered in the temple & they were taking  dip into water in the middle of temple,that was kind of strange for me.

Than we got to know about sohna kund also known as shivkund hot water spring.The speciality of that kund is that it was filled with hot water for 24×7 from last many years.I personally saw the steam coming out from that kund.

Devotees considered it as sacred place & the water of the kund magical.If someone take bathe with that water or just wash their skin with that water they will never have any kind of allergy or skin disease.because it is said that this holy spring water have many medicinal properties & curative effect.

But the scientific reason behind this -it is having great amount of minerals & full of sulpher & temperature varies from 46°c to 51.7°c.

So this was enough for today.I’ll be adding the real pictures with this blog soon.& we’ll continuing with our Taj trip in my next blog which i’ll publish on 8thnov.Till than keep reading guyz & keep travelling.

About Haunted Place-

So you guys have experienced the whole thing which i have been seen in part-1

There were one more temple,named Gopinath Temple & it was looking very beautiful & huge from the previous one.Many stairs were there to reached the temple.Finally we reached there & what we saw,was unbelievable.There were no statue of Lord.The main area of temple was empty(No God).We were shocked to see that.Attractive artwork were there on temple’s wall.

Google

But one thing i have to confess here that the place was very photogenic.Finally we entered into the Bhangarh Fort.It was very destroyed all over.

There were debris of walls & darkness.Dark rooms were looking very scary.Some locals told us that one of them was Queen Ratnawati’s room.I looked the fort very slowly so that i don’t miss any part of fort.There were one ‘shiva temple’at the side of main area & was very spacious & peaceful.I actually felt kind of normal over there.One little pond beside it & other things.See below-

Final Conclusion(from my experience)-

My journey was very adventurous & decent because there were no any paranormal activity in our presence(we were glad to know that).But i felt a strange type of silence in the air of fort.I don’t know rather it was that real haunted stories belong to fort or because of the dry view.We left the place before dark as per the rules but themystery is still unrevealed.But i had too much fun on new year’s first day.

Hope you guys liked this & haunt as well during read. & yes… you should also go there & let me know your views & how was your experience.or you want to go there or not.

About food-

There were no any food arrangement near bhangarh.So it’s good to take your water & food items with you.Some stalls of snacks are there but they are little far from the place.

Thankyou all for reading.Keep reading & Stay tuned!!! I’ll see you on 8th of october with my new blog.
