Random Snaps Of Kuala Lumpur

So much to see in this world yet so little time on my hands. It happens to me every time whenever I hit a foreign country. And this time happened in Kuala Lumpur. Notwithstanding, I managed to click couple of images of this cosmopolitan city, especially colorful buildings. I simply adore them. Here, I am sharing some of my random snaps of Kuala Lumpur.

Veerabhadra Temple – India’s Pride

My wish to visit Lepakshi’s famous Veerabhadra Temple and explore its architectural beauty has come true! I managed to visit the place during my recent rip to Bengaluru.

Words will not be enough to describe the stunning 16th century temple, which is just 140km from Bengaluru. I was enthralled by the huge temple complex and its architectural splendors. Dedicated to Lord Veerabhadra, the temple could be divided in three main parts – Mukha mantapa, arda mantapa and the garbhagriha. The Vijayanagara architectural style is quite visible on the temple.

And one can clearly notice carvings and paintings at almost every part of the temple.

One of the most attractive features of the temple is a massive monolith structure of Nagalinga. Overall, the whole temple is a masterpiece.

How I reached the place: I took a city bus from Gunjur Pallaya (where I was staying) to Kempegowda Bus Station. It took me around 1 hour and 15 minutes. From Kempegowda, I took another bus to Hindupur. The bus journey was approximately 3 and half hour journey. From Hindupur, I boarded another bus to reach the temple. So basically it was a one day trip from Bengaluru.

Glimpses Of My Tour To Kuala Lumpur

Kuala Lumpur has a lot to offer when it comes to exploring the city as a tourist.

During my very short trip, I managed to visit several of the popular tourist destinations, thanks to the city’s efficient metro or rapid transit system.

Being new to the city, I decided to explore Kuala Lumpur on the google before starting my trip, just to ensure that I do not miss out on any attractive or popular tourist spot.

From skyscrapers to colorful buildings, I captured almost every attractive place of this beautiful city in my camera.

Bukit Bintang, Merdeka Square, China Town were some of the popular spots where I visited.

Besides, I also explored Kuala Lumpur’s spectacular Thean Hou Templ, which you can read here.

At last I could only say that I wish I had more time in my hand to cover other popular tourist spots like Batu Cave and Petronas Tower. May be next time!

P.S- Besides, metro, I also used popular Grab App to reach some of my destinations without much hassle.

To make your journey simpler and easier you can buy a local simcard and download the app on your phone.

Exploring Galle Fort: Part 2

IMG_4316

Galle Fort is replete with cute cafes, colorful houses and lots of boutiques. One can easily cover the whole Galle Fort on foot. I managed to cover almost 80% of this area on foot, capturing the beauty of this picturesque town. From Lighthouse to famous All Saints’ Church, Galle managed to impress me with its rich history. In every corner of the street, one can spot either a charming building or a cafe. Galle must be included in your Sri Lanka itinerary.

Exploring Galle Fort: Part 1

Defying extremely hot and humid climate, I decided to explore Galle Fort, one of Sri Lanka’s major tourist attractions.
A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the fort was originally built by the Portuguese in the 16th century to defend Galle.
As I have captured numerous images of this fort, I would like to split up this article in two parts.
Thanks to Archaeological Department of Sri Lanka, the monument has been remarkably maintained. I will suggest you to visit this place between the months of October and March.

You can read more about this fort here.

The European Side Of Mumbai

This was my third trip to Mumbai but first as a tourist. Earlier, I visited the financial capital of India due to some official work. I was quite excited to visit Mumbai once again but honestly speaking I wasn’t expecting any big surprises.

IMG_3231

But Mumbai proved me wrong.  I wasn’t just surprised but astonished by the historic British era buildings of south Mumbai.

IMG_2947

IMG_2942

Simple architecture yet very attractive. These buildings, some colorful and some grey, took me to the bygone era.

IMG_3064

IMG_2950

These beauteous buildings will literally make you feel that you are in an European country. At least I felt so.

IMG_3176

IMG_3125

Being a huge admirer of India’s history, I was glad to discover a different part of Mumbai.
And If you are a history buff, then it is a must visit place for you. Meandering through the narrow lanes  and eating in small eateries, my trip became more than wonderful.

And if you plan to travel on Sunday then there are many organisations which conduct heritage walk.
