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 ?

My Pokhara Sojourm

Pokhara is one of the top tourists destinations of Nepal, providing a major boost to the Himalayan country’s tourism sector.

Pokhara got added to my itinerary during my Nepal trip on the advise of some of my friends. The city attracts a large number of tourists as it is the starting point for them to kick off their trek to the Annapurna mountain. Phewa Lake is one of the most attractive tourists spots in the city, offering stunning views.

During my two day-stay in Pokhara, I spent most of time on the bank of the lake, viewing endless sky and pristine water. A number of water-sports activities are conducted on daily basis for tourist at the lake. The prices of these activities are fixed so no scope of bargaining.

However, I opted not to indulge in any sports. When it comes to accommodations, the city is home to a number of hotels, hostels and resorts and one could easily avail them without much hassle. So advance booking is not required. A number of bars, cafes and restaurants will welcome you once you land there.

Interestingly, I found evening more relaxed and soothing than morning. Bikes and bicycles are available to explore the city, a place where I would like to come again and again.
