Sandamuni Pagoda – A White Beauty

A visit to Sandamuni Pagoda in Myanmar was always part of my travel itinerary. Situated at the southwest of Mandalay Hill, this breathtaking Buddhist stupa was commissioned by King Mindon Min in 1874.

This pagoda contains the graves of the Kanaung, Sagu Mintha, Malun, and Maingpyin Princes.

It also contains an iron image of the Buddha cast by Bodawpaya in 1802, and removed from Amarapura by Mindon in 1874. The total weight of the statue is 18,563.2kg.

The golden chedi is the oldest structure on the grounds. It was constructed in 1874 by King Mindon Min on the site of his temporary Palace.

There are 1,774 shrines, each containing a single marble slab.

Keep aside a minimum of one hour for this pagoda and observe minutely how it has been built. Really a great spot for photography.

Capturing Hidden Beauty Of Kuala Lumpur

When it comes to photography, I do not have any specific agenda. I do not have any specific rule. I just keep clicking as long as the subject appeals to me. Some turn out to be good, while some bad. How about you ? Do you follow certain rules to get a perfect shot ? These images were from my earlier trip to Kuala Lumpur. Currently, I am using Canon 750D and Mi A3. How about you ?

Once Upon A Time In Kerala

It was the year 2009 when I made an impromptu trip to Kerala. Traveled to few places including Alappuzha and Kumarakom. The following pictures were taken from Kumarakom. The owner of my guest house asked his children to take me to a secluded place, where I clicked these mesmerizing pictures. I was lucky to have witnessed such a dramatic sky. Beautiful memory!

Exploring Goa’s Panjim On Foot

As I always say the more you travel, the more you see. During a quick trip to Panjim, I encountered all these fascinating structures. Do you know why these structures exist? I have no clue. While some of these structures I spotted in the crowded markets, the other part of the capital city is also a sight to behold. I am talking about Panjim’s Latin Quarter. Brightly painted houses will take you to a by gone era. And the best part is you can explore all these places on foot. The whole idea was to get some unique images. And I am glad I was able to capture some interesting and vibrant houses in Panjim.

I am back with another article on Malaysia. This time famous Batu Caves. It is a limestone hill consist of three major caves and a number of smaller ones.

Dedicated to Lord Murugan, this vibrant temple has a series of caves and cave temples. It is believed that the caves are said to be around 400 million years old.

The largest and most popular cavern in Batu Caves is Cathedral Cave, which has a number of Hindu shrines beneath its 100-metre-high arched ceiling. One can spot two other cave temples at the foot of Batu Hill – the Art Gallery Cave and Museum Cave . These two temples have a number of Hindu statues and paintings.

One has to climb up the 272 steps to reach the top of the caves. The famous Murugan Statue is located at the foot of the Cave. The 42.7 meter statue is the tallest statue in Malaysia.

Batu Caves is located about 73.0km away from Kuala Lumpur airport. Have you explored this vibrant place ?

Exploring A Different Goa

A quick trip to Goa made me realize that the state is not all about beaches. While exploring some interior parts of the state, I stumbled upon these beautiful plants and leaves. Although I am unable to recognize them, I am glad I spotted them during the trip. I just wish I could have clicked more such pretty photographs of these plants. So next time when you visit Goa, try to explore a bit deeper so that you can encounter with such species.

Do you know me ?

Once Upon A Time in Brasov

Brasov is cute, compact and colorful. A short getaway to this vibrant Romanian city made one of my life’s best trips. Cobblestone streets, amazing cafes and bars made it a perfect destination. Although I have shared a lot of stories and images of Brasov in the past on my blog, I could not resist myself from posting more images about this amazing city. When I arrived at Henri Coanda International Airport, Bucharest, my friend came straight from Brasov to receive me. And from there I started my Romanian sojourn. Have you been to Romania ? If yes, please do share with me your experience. I would like to listen your stories.

Magnificent Beauty Of Ko Samet

Being a thalassophile, I make sure my every international trip includes the ocean, rivers and lakes. My love for water bodies took me to Koh Samet near Bangkok. Its tranquility, turquoise water and sandy beaches make it a perfect holiday destination. If you are in Bangkok and want to explore a nearby beach destination, then do not forget to visit Koh Samet, a three-hour journey from Bangkok. Sharing some images of my short getaway to this beautiful island.
