Bhoga Nandeeshwara Temple

Words will not be enough to describe the unparalleled beauty of Bhoga Nandeeshwara Temple situated in Karnataka. Just 60km away from state capital Bengaluru, this temple is a must visit if you have a deep interest in India’s ancient heritage. My passion to explore such places drew me to the temple. Thanks to Google map, me and my friend managed to reach the place within 1 ½ hours from Bengaluru. Between our journey, we also sought help from local people. Though language was a bit of problem, we managed to overcome it. Located in Nandi Hills Area, this temple attracts a large number of devotees everyday.

Dedicated to Lord Shiva, the construction of the temple dates back to the ninth century. Just walk around and admire the beauty of the Dravidian style of architecture.

You can read more about the temple’s history and architecture here.

Next time when you are in Bengaluru, try to explore this majestic temple.

Have you ever seen such a grand temple in your life ?

One Day Stay At Horcho Guest House: Spacious, Nice & Clean

Staying at a homestay is the best way to explore local culture and cuisine. During a recent trip to Ladakh’s Nubra Valley, me and my friends decided to stay at Horcho Guest House, located in Hunder. Surrounded by rugged mountains and dense forest, this is a perfect place to spend some quality time there. It was a pleasure to behold the whole area. This is what I felt after just one day stay. A variety of colorful flowers will welcome you when you enter the guesthouse. The owner of the guesthouse told me that he has turned this into a homestay so that travelers get an authentic experience. He has also cultivated variety of vegetables ranging from cauliflowers to pea around his home. One can freely enjoy the surrounding areas which are filled with streams and forests. I woke up early morning and decided to take a long walk. The chirping of birds and the gentle stream sounds made me more than happy. It was a perfect journey, which left great memories.

Rooms are clean and tariffs start from Rs1,000.

All the images have been taken with a Honor 9 Lite.

A Photo Essay On Pangong Tso

Like many travelers, I too made a trip to Pangong Tso, one of the most beautiful and enchanting lakes in India. I always wanted to photograph this place after seeing numerous snaps on Internet. After a lot of negotiation with a couple of travel agencies in Leh, I finally found two couples, who agreed to travel with me. We hired a Xylo and luckily we got a good driver. After several hours of journey, we reached our destination. I took a deep breath and started clicking pictures of this breathtaking lake, which is surrounded by barren yet dramatic mountains. I stayed at a small homestay, while my friends preferred tents. The owner of the homestay shared many interesting stories about lake, business, daily life and visitors over a cup of tea. Now I will let you to enjoy the snaps.
