A Time Travel to Amber Fort in Rajasthan

Amber Fort, also known as Amer Palace is one of the most popular forts of Rajasthan. It is about 11 kilometers from Jaipur. Amer used to be the state’s citadel before it was shifted to Jaipur.

Built in 1592 AD, as initiated by Raja Man Singh and took two centuries and three consequent kings for the completion.It was under Maharaja Sawai Singh II’s ruling that it eventually was expanded and renovated. The Amer Fort has witnessed history and defended the residents of the kingdom from invasion of enemies, and stood against the test of time. Luckily, it is still around to show us the culture, grandiosity and importance of it during its time.

The picturesque fort located in the hills, was made of red sand stone and white marble. The stark appearance of the exterior disguises the hidden aesthetic display of Mughal art and architecture inside. The impressively intricate carvings and expressive paintings as well as the display of precious stones and mirrors line its interior. The palace has many halls and pavilions that can be explored. And with the foreground charm of the Maota Lake, a visit to this legendary palace will surely leave every guest in awe with the spectacular vista.

There are a very few hill stations that has snow in India throughtout the year or atleast for sometime. South India is always hot throughout the year. My objective to visit this hill station was to experience snow and it is just 450+ km away from Delhi, filled with snow for most months and cold throughout the year. I am planning my second visit here very soon. Love and Regards

Visit to Narkanda, Himachal Pradesh India

Friends,

Visited Himachal Pradesh to recce a guitar school in Shimla. By God’s grace and someone’s suggestion I got to see Narkanda today, which is a beautiful small town at Shimla district in the Northern Indian Region and in state of Himachal Pradesh. It is a very beautiful hill station and what I saw everywhere today is just snow.

I travelled 65 kms from very popular Shimla Hill station to see this place which took around 2.5 hours. The beauty of this place is Hatu Peak (mountain) which is at 11000 ft height. I couldn’t go to Hatu Peak due to heavy snow but I will see it next time.

Sharing you few mobile snaps of the view of this place and will upload more soon in the photogallery.

Himachal tourism is world famous for its beautiful locations and numerous Hills. Some of them are Shimla, Kasauli, Kufri, Dharmshala, Solan, Narkanda and many more of them.

Love and Regards
