Rumtek: The largest and the most gorgeous Monastery of Sikkim, that holds a History in its heart from centuries ago. Heavily guarded by ITBP, Rumtek Monastery is home to several monks, Nalanda University for Buddhism studies, antique state treasure and the golden stupa with relics of the 16th Karmapa. 22km from Gangtok at an altitude of 4900feet surrounded by lucious greenery, Rumtek remains one of the most visited monasteries where you can meditate, closely watch the life of monks or play with the friendly strays. It was a treat to be here where we experienced tranquility and the magic of nature around.
Our snowy adventures in Sikkim. Welcome to Zero Point, the last outpost of civilization before China, at an altitude of 15000Feet where Indian Army in knee deep snow, puts up a tough front 365 days. Salute to our army and their dedication to the nation. While we enjoy the snow and come back in less than an hour, the Army stays there 24*7 in extreme weather. How could we not visit this place when in Sikkim. #Travelblogger  #Sikkim #zeroPoint #NorthSikkim #Indiatour #NorthEastIndia
Sikkim, you beauty. The prayer flags sending positive vibes to all. Enroute Lachen.

The blue stretch over head, 
the deep sparkling crystal bed,
the lush green comforting cloak,
the warm sunshine that we soak,
the mighty Gods of Nature, I bow to thee. 
Lost my heart to the breathtaking Gurudongmar Lake, North Sikkim.

A great hotel stay, keeps holiday blues away. Hotel Suris Boutique is where we experienced luxury and comfort in mid sized budget. Someone correctly said that a good hotel contributes a lot towards a happy memorable trip.

Witnessed royalty, magnificence and a saga of the bravest and most commitment service men of the country in the Change of Guard Ceremony at the Rashtrapati Bhawan, New Delhi. A free event for public, entry to this ceremony is allowed basis online reservation. The ceremony takes place every Saturday from 8 to 8:40am. Go witness the brilliant coordination, royal display and stories of bravery of men in uniform who would be ready to make sacrifices for the country when needed. A salute and huge respect for Indian Army!

The hidden gem of lost History in Delhi. The mosque and tomb of #JamaliKamali in Mehrauli Archaeological Park, unknown to many, stands quietly, dusting sand from the facade of time. Quite close to the Qutub Minar premises, the archaeological park is home to lot of other historical structures that lie neglected and ruined, partly maintained by ASI. #DelhiHistory #HeritageDelhi #QutubMinar #Mehrauli @beautifull.india @splendid_india

Happy Ganesh Chaturthi. 
The 6 feet tall Chaar Bhujaa Dhaari Vighanharta is made of over 800kg scrap parts of Ford cars which was donated to Heritage Transport Museum. The project that encourages recycling and reuse, was accomplished by metal artist Nishant Sudhakaran and artist Madhvi Khaitan. A great initiative indeed. Ganpati Bappa Morya!!!! #HistoryMuseum #DiscoverIndia #india_clicks #Ganpati #MetalArt #Travelblogger #natgeoyourshot #ScrapArt #Recycle @heritage_transport_museum

Feeding the beauty in Bali Bird Park. They look scary but are vegetarian birds, who love perching on shoulders and hands. The well fed, well taken care of birds symbolise the great management and good intention of Balinese Government. They are quite protective of their environment and nature.  #BaliBirdPark #Indonesia #tripoto #Traveladdict #Travelblogger #Naturelove #Birdwatching #BirdsofBali #couplegoals #traveltogether @indiblogger
