19th it was... The visit was in summer, August 2016. I visited the Holy place, Vrindaban which was the most remarkable and marvelous place I ever visited. It was the pleasure listening “Radhey Radhey” from each and every one after entering into. Vrindaban is 159 kilometres away from Delhi and situated in the North of Agra, somewhere in the forest of Uttar Pradesh. I visited with my bestie Madhu with my Wagon-R. The side streets were immersed in chanting the melodious songs for Lord Krishna. The morning starts with saying “Radhey Radhey” or “Hare Krishna” by each and every people. People living in Vrindaban seem very humble, mild and loving. Life is incomplete when there is no Peace, and this peace can only be seen in Vrindaban, according to me. As everybody knows, Vrindaban is a holy place because the place is religious and full of beautiful temples (The Land of Loads). It is one of the most visited place in Uttar Pradesh and best for all aged people. Banke Bihari Temple was the first place of my visit. As me and my friend enter into the place it seems so mesmerizing, the beauty of flowers can actually showed there only. The decoration with the combination of flowers and balloons were adorable. There we got to know that the Murti of Bihari ji is the leaked out by Swami Haridas ji, through his singing, the Murti is the couple of Radha Krishna. All the devotees were in full devoutness by saying “Jai shree Radhey” by raising their hands in front of the Banke Bihari. As we enter Vrindaban from chatikara Mod, we find a myriad setup of hotels, eateries and residential societies around us. On the small street called Parikrama road, amidst all the buildings, are present a large number of what can be called tourists, pilgrims or locals. Iskon Temple is also known as angrez mandir, because it is established and run by the foreigners especially. It was the second place where I visited. The fragrance of that temple was amazing. While entering into the temple the fragrance attracts me towards it. The noise of mangeera, harmonium, dholak and of the song sang by the people was giving such a relief and was so pleasant to the ears. The moment I saw the people dancing while listening the bhajan of Lord krishna, me and my freind also starts dancing happily. It gives me such a pleasure which can't be expressed while writing but which can only be felt while seeing and listening. At Last, approx. 7 pm, we went to the Taj Mahal of Vrindaban i.e, prem mandir also known as love temple. Ohh!! my God, the place was wonderful, I am speechless. It was outstanding, the place which I liked the most was the prem mandir. I mean what to say it crossed the limit of beauty. At night the whole temple was full of lighting. As we entered I started seeing the whole story of Lord Krishna through the sculptures. The Ras leela, Lord Krishna lifting the mountain with his smallest finger and the whole people presented under the mountain and of course the magical musical fountain how wonderful it was pleasant to the eyes. The inside beauty was unforgettable, we both were not able to stop our eyes while seeing it. The place was magical for me. It was only one day Travel with me and my friend but surely I will love to visit there again but this time with my family. Thanks for reading 

Croatia has always been an attractive destination for cultural travelers due to the rich and diverse historical heritage of this region. The country has witnessed the birth of many mighty civilizations over the centuries, and each of these civilizations has left an indelible mark on the local culture. One can admire the artifacts from these intriguing chapters of the nation's history at the various museums that dot the entire country and can also spot mesmerizing relics from the ancient times on the streets, in the form of majestic monuments and sculptures. Here are some of the most enthralling cultural hotspots in Croatia that one must visit to get a closer look at the multi faceted culture of the region.   Dubrovnik The city of Dubrovnik was once a medieval fortified town surrounded by massive stone walls that shielded it from invaders. These walls still stand in all their might around the city and most of the towers and forts they contain are still intact. As you step inside, you will be greeted by opulent architecture and rustic streets that exude the old world charm. The Sponza Palace and the Rector's Palace are a few of the fine pieces of architecture while the main street or Stradun is embellished with beautiful sculptures and fountains. From the imposing Lovrijenac Fort that guards the coast to the red roofed houses along the golden sea shores, every aspect of Dubrovnik offers a glimpse of the yester years.   Pula The city of Pula is known for the remnants of the Roman era that it has managed to preserve over the centuries. The most striking landmark of this city is the gigantic Roman amphitheater that dates back to the 1st century. Known by the name of Arena, this amphitheater now serves as a venue for concerts and cultural events. Other historical attractions include the Temple of Augustus at the Forum or the main square, the Triumphal Arch of Sergius that was erected in 27 B.C, and the Pula Cathedral that exhibits some magnificent architecture. With so many treasures from the bygone era, Pula is indeed a sprawling life-size museum that will delight all aficionados of culture.   Zadar Zadar is an alluring fusion of ancient ruins, medieval churches, and quirky cafes that are a fine depiction of the diverse Croatian culture. The St. Donatus' Church displays some unique Byzantine architecture while the Roman Forum contains ruins of Roman temples and altars. On the other hand, the Sun Salutation and the Sea Organ are unique creations of the local architect Nikola Basic that impart a wacky personality to the town. While the former is a pavement made of glass plates that absorb the sun's energy during the day and produce a colorful light show at night, the latter is a series of pipes embedded in the staircase leading to the sea that produces whistles and sighs in the sea breeze. This eclectic mix of historical and modern elements has made Zadar one of the most popular cultural hubs in Croatia.   Split The town of Split is yet another destination that offers a delightful fusion of the old and the new. The throbbing heart of Split is the Diocletian's Palace, a massive building made of limestone and marble that is home to residential complexes, shops, and restaurants. This palace provides a modern take on the fortified towns of the medieval times and the contrast of urban lifestyle against the backdrop of traditional architecture is incredibly bewitching. Other attractions of this coastal town include the Marjan Hill (reachable via Split taxi services) that is adorned with beautiful gardens and hidden churches and the Cathedral of St. Domnius that has a glorious bell tower. The beaches of this region are also popular for their exciting nightlife and idyllic scenery.   These intriguing cities provide a glance at the authentic culture of Croatia and display its various hues and flavors in a spectacular manner. If a trip down the lanes of history is what you have in mind then visiting these fascinating locations is a must.

Last year we thought of visiting the Kolkata during September, just before the Durga Puja. We had planned for three days stay in Kolkata and had chalked out our travel plan accordingly. Our journey started on a Sunday morning. As soon as we checked out of the airport our chauffeur, whom we had already booked, greeted us 'Namaste'. He helped us with our lug gages as we made ourselves comfortable in the car. Then we headed towards our hotel which was in salt-lake. It took us around half an hour to reach our destination.We had booked a single Air conditioned room in the hotel blue orchid. The room was spacious and well- maintained. It was afternoon when we had reached, so we ordered for our lunch.The food was simple but tasty. We took rest for some time and then started our expedition in the evening. The first place we went was Ecopark. By car, it took us around 10 minutes to reach the place. The Park covered a huge area and we knew that one or two hours will not be sufficient to explore the place. The park had a beautiful lake which was adorned with artificial islands. We enjoyed a shikara ride in one the boats which was stationed there. We visited the fruit, tea, mask garden. Then we also tried the duo cycling and e-biking for the first time. It was real fun. By this time the evening sky was painted with a pale tint of orange and we enjoyed taking selfies and groupies basking in its beauty. We had our dinner in a restaurant in city-centre 2, which half a kilometre from Ecopark. The first day, started at Chennai and ended in Kolkata quite well.  Ecopark Kolkata gets a 4 rating out of 5 for the beautiful ambience and lush green lawn.   The next day we started around 8 o' clock in the morning. First, we visited the famous Dakshineshwer temple. The temple is built beside the Hooghly River in the ancient architectural style. Luckily we didn't have to stand for a long time in the queue to offer our prayers. After the puja in the temple, we went to Belur math by boat. It seemed that the wide expanse of clear water washed away all the sins of the devotees. At the Belur math, we relished the bhog which is served at the temple religiously as lunch. The serene ambience of the math is refreshing and bags 4.5 rating. After a religious start, we headed towards our next destination that was Esplanade better known as the new market. At the first glance, the place seemed to be impenetrable because of its crowd but we still managed to make our way. Every nook and corner of the market, were a display of the sheen dresses, chic handbags, dazzling jewellery and much more. It is a place where we could bargain to our heart's content. This old market of Kolkata deserves a 5 on 5 rating. The evening had just started to set in as we moved towards our next destination that is the Victoria memorial. The lush green lawn around the memorial was a relief for the eyes. We spend some time sitting on the lawn enjoying the dusk. The easy stroll amidst the hanging branches of the trees at the dusk was really pleasing. The next morning we were very late as we all got up around 11. Someone had suggested us that sector 5 had some awesome restaurants, so we decided to have our brunch in one of those; Bhojohaori Manna, which is famous for its Bengali cuisine.It is a perfect restaurant for a family get-together. Every delicacy that they served had the authentic Bengali taste in it. The famous 'bhapa ilish' is worth tasting moreover the ambience made us feel at home. After a heart filling food we decided to visit Jorasanko Thakur Bari in Jorasanko, north of Kolkata.The house is built in the old architectural style of the ancient zamindars. Most of the place is now turned into a museum showcasing the literary works, applauds, medals earned by Tagore.The place still has the aura of the Tagore's time. The next, we visited Nandan, the famous cultural centre of Kolkata. We watched a movie at the lowest price that we had ever paid. The movie did not turn out to be very good but when we came out of the theatre we found that people were playing guitar, mouth-organ, enjoying the music around the area. The love for music and art is in the blood of the Bengalis and it was proved here. As the city got shrouded in the night's blanket we prepared ourselves for our backward journey. Kolkata is allured us for the next visit and this sojourn ended blissfully.

Manali is truly one of the best famous tourist destinations in Himachal Pradesh, India for spending holiday with our family member. That was a promising day - my tour to Manali in Himachal Pradesh. I am a man who loves to travel long distances but while making a trip to Manali I nodded off. My mother woke me up to state we had come to. The minute I opened my eyes I was astonished - blue skies, white mountains, green land. It was extremely icy as well. We remained in a hotel close to the stream Beach. From the window of my room I could see the Rohtang pass. It was completely secured with snow. I haven't seen such a wonderful mountain ever some time recently. It was an amazing experience!! At Solang valley, we had the option of jumping from three heights. Initially I was a bit hesitant, but ultimately chose the highest point. First we went up via trolley. Then we trekked to reach the paragliding point that was a few meters down. I was quite nervous when we reached there. The thought of jumping from a mountain cliff does sound scary, doesn't it?? Manali is a really beautiful place indeed! Infact the way to Manali will give you an amazing view to look at if you choose to go by Car/Bus. One thing to keep in mind while booking a hotel is to choose the one which is near to Mall road! And make sure the hotel has a good view from balcony or window because if you are not waking up to a beautiful view its certainly a big miss! Best places to visit is Manali is 1.Solang Valley 2. Gulaba 3. Rohtang 4. Jugni Falls 5. Hidimba Temple 6. Cafes in Old Manali and if you are a Snow Lover! Just like me! then prefer going in December ! Thats the best time to visit Manali!

Journeys have always fascinated me to the core. Being one of the activities I love the most, travelling not only refreshes me but also give me lots of memories I cling to throughout my lifetime. One such beautiful travel experience is the trip to Maa Vaishno Devi temple in Katra. The abode of my Maa, the supreme power and the Goddess herself. My journey started from the north-eastern state of Assam, from the hustling town of Guwahati. It was a journey with my mother and two of my aunts. We started out on a late February day by Rajdhani express at 7 am. My father and a sister in law came to bid us on this beautiful journey. Though I wanted my sis in law to accompany a lot, she couldn't for some health issues. We were both in tears as the train chugged out of the station whistling through the slums located near the tracks onto the mesmerizing Saraighat Bridge across the River Brahmaputra. I loved train journeys very much, looking out to the fields and is also the place I resort to another most loved activity of mine- reading. The day went by lazily sleeping and reading into the night and then to the next morning. I hardly knew which stations passed by in the midst of the night. We reached Delhi around 1 pm and checked into Mayur Assam hotel in Arakashan road in Paharganj. It was a stay of few hours as we again had a train at night to Jammu. As we had few hours to spare, we roamed the markets in Arakashan road, had lunch and came back to the hotel to rest for some time. Thereafter, we had a train from Old Delhi railway Junction to Jammu Tawi junction at 8.30 pm. We reached Jammu early the morning next day and took a bus from Jammu to holy town Katra. The ride from Jammu to Katra was pleasant crossing small hills into the valley wherefrom we can see the breathtaking view of the route to the Maa Vaishno Devi temple. Once we reached Katra, we checked into a local hotel, ate, bathed and packed light clothes to start for the temple. We had pre-bookings of stay in Gouri Bhawan in the temple premises which is why we took clothes with us. Thereafter, started the long walk to the temple premises. I should surely add here, the 12 km long walk was indeed very refreshing. It is true when people say there is no pain felt when you walk miles to visit your Maa. The road spotted with holy souvenir shops and religious songs gave us company as we reached the entrance of the temple. We walked through the long queue and visited our holy Maa. She was graceful in her abode, the calmness and graceful aura surrounding the whole premises. Words fall short of describing how much I adore her and love her. She is the one and only, the ever power and ever knowing and the supreme amongst all. Once we had her view, we went to the Gouri Bhawan and stayed for the night. We had bookings for the aarti early at 5 am in the morning so we hastily slept off. It was already dark when we woke up for the aarti and got ready to start for the temple again. We witnessed the aarti- the divine prayer to the deity and the call to seek her blessings and love. Thereafter, we went to see Maa once again before leaving for Bhairav mandir on the mountaintop. After reaching Bhairav Mandir by walking 2.5 kms uphill, we offered prayers and then sat awhile there and then took the way back to the base. We reached after around six hours and took rest to our fill. Next day, we did some local shopping and headed for Jammu in a bus. Once we reached there, we stayed for few hours before heading for Delhi in a train. We reached Delhi the next day and stayed in a hotel at Karol Bagh. We had entire two days to spare and we shopped, visited friends and places across Delhi. After the refreshing two days in Delhi, we headed for Guwahati again in the same Rajdhani Express with a hope to come back to Delhi and mostly to visit Maa again in the near future. We reached Guwahati the next evening with my father waiting at the station for us to pick us up. The journey from Guwahati to Maa Vaishno Devi temple was indeed much refreshing and joyful. It is indeed always a happy moment when one visits Maa's abode.

  When most people plan college trips to Goa, we changed our minds and ventured into the unexplored lands of the North East. Most people won't know this but one of the only places in India which follows matriarchial society is Shillong. Here, the man moves to his wife's house after marriage, there is equality apart from the serenity radiating from the lands.  As soon, as we landed on the grounds of Guwahati airport, the cluster of buildings in Delhi altered to rich green paddy fields and the smell of the recent downpour made us dizzy(in a good way) . We crossed the mighty Brahmaputra, the little ferries and fingers crossed to catch a glimpse of river dolphins. The drive from Guwahati to Shillong took about 2 and a half to three hours, the drive was beautiful. Also, as soon as we entered Meghalaya, the sweaty humidity of Guwahati vanished into a perfect weather. The first tourist site which welcomed us was the Barapani lake, which was huge and reminded of the great river in Hogwarts. Then we aclimatised ourselves to the weather on the first day, took a stroll towards the police Bazar( Glorys Plaza and Fancy market is one of the best places to buy clothes and shoes respectively). Treated ourselves to a plate of momos, and rested for the remaining night.  The following day, we started early towards the Shillong peak which is the highest point in Shillong. The weather was slightly cold but the sight was such a treat to the eyes. It was so peaceful and calm, entire Shillong was before us, and it was gorgeous! We had a delightful breakfast consisting of chai and maggi. Next stop was the root bridge. Root bridge is a man made bridge made of rubber trees, built by villagers decades ago. We climbed down a couple of 150 steps to a breathtaking view of the rootbridge, mid way, we gorged down on ripe pineapples and citrusy fruits. Rootbridge was the best memory of my Shillong trip, the clear waters of the stream below, it was hard to believe that a structure so beautiful existed. After climbing up the exhausting stroll, we moved on to the next location, which was Dawki.   Dawki is situated on the India Bangladesh border and is around 60 kms from Shillong, the Dawki waters are so clear that you can see the reflection of your own boat. To boat, we climbed down a rocky trek towards a small beach. We hopped onto narrow kayak like boats and passed through arches and the water was so clear, we could see fish and stones. We had some refreshing cool drinks and lunch in a dhaba enroute to our guest house. The next day we went to a nearby lake called Ward's Lake, boated through the lake, interacted with the local crowd. Also, there's a zoo nearby which has deer, and many species of birds. We also heard that there was a Butterfly Museum nearby but thinking of dead butterflies clipped on glass gave us the creeps. We had lunch in a local restaurant called Bamboo hut, the momos and coffee was delicious. Cafe Shillong is one of the most popular cafes, with live music and one of the only places in India which serve Beef. We were lucky that it wass a weekend, we saw Lou Majou, a popular Shillong artist perform and forced ourselves on delicious food, One of my friends really enjoyed the beef burger though I didn't try. Thukpa and Chocolate shake was sumptous.    Since, we only had a short tripped planned, we went to the Cathedral, which was all in blue matching with the clear blue skies of Shillong. Inside, it was very quiet and peaceful. We roamed around the area, it was huge.  Taking a quick bite from a nearby Cafe Munchies, we drove back to Guwahati along with our hearts full of serenity, peace and calm. Shillong is known as capital and hill station of Meghalaya, also known as "The Abode of Clouds", one of the smallest states in India. With its amazing beauty and breathtaking lakes and rivers it never fails to give you amazing experiences.
