Hello to you ;).
Happy new Year and welcome to our first post on traveling.
Travelling has been my passion since I don’t know when. It is believed that what you do on the first of a year comes along all the way to the end of it. This new year, I decided to welcome 2017 with a little adventure.
In my little bubble of adventure, I covered Jammu- Vaishno Devi, such a lively place I say and local.
Punjab- Amritsar-Harmandir Sahib, a.k.a The Golden Temple, an embodiment of peace and harmony and local.
Wagha- India-Pakistan Border- The first line of Defence.
Delhi- The capital. Akshardham- One of the Largest Temples of the world and last but not the least, Shopping sprees. ❤
We started early in the morning at 4 from our place of residence, reached Katra at 5:30 AM, took our Yatra tickets at the Katra bus stand ( P.S: we had to go down the hill again for those tickets. They’re free but don’t forget to get them *chilling auto ride*).
Started our climb, mounted on horses at 6:30 AM and reached the hill top at 9:30.
It took 1 hour for us for Darshan, all that hours of climbing is definitely worth it. ❤
The view from the hilltop was amazing. ❤
The place is so lively 24/7. It’s a thrilling experience.
We came back at 2 in the afternoon.
The next was Jammu local tour. We visited Raghunath temple, Amar mahal palace, A cave temple. Camera wasn’t allowed everywhere. 😦
Note: Pre-paid sims don’t work in Jammu. It’s good to be away from technology for some days, but in case of emergencies do carry a postpaid sim card with you.
Harmandir Sahib a.k.a The Golden Temple.
It’s a place I’d rather settle down at. Such peace and harmony and luscious food.
Who could possibly say no? ❤
And JallianWala Bagh. 😦
We went on a little local tour of temples around and then off to THE BORDER.
Such a marvelous crowd and such patriotism. Was in awe of it. Jai Hind. *Salute*
It was one of THE evenings of my life.
We went to see Akshardham. It’s a place worth visiting. Being one of the largest temples of the world with the storytelling of the life of Swaminarayan through robotics. Those exhibitions are worth your time. Took a complete day out at Akshardham.
All this was covered in a span of 6 days.
What are you waiting for?
January has a good set of weekends.
Happy Travelling. 😀
