North India Sojourn


Part 1

Having been to many South Indian states of India, I yearned to visit the Northern states and finally visited some of the famous places like:

a) Delhi – The Capital City


The famous Lotus temple in Delhi
 

b) Chandigarh – The Planned City

 
One of the many beautiful creations at Rock garden, Chandigarh

c) Amritsar – The Holy City

d) Shimla – The Cool Hilltown


The famous Mall road in Shimla

Visiting these cities and town within a week was indeed possible. Though seven days is not sufficient to explore all of these wonderful places, I must say it was a wonderful experience!

Each of these places has its own inherent attractions, which I will share in my upcoming posts.
