On the way to Swayanbanath temple…
Inside Singapore airport….
Views from 27th floor Hotel Singapore….
View from the swimming pool….
Heading towards Assi Ghat ….
All kinds of transport in use…
Cows are everywhere along with their poos….being present is definitely an advantage…
They seem to love being in the centre of everything!!
Books stacked high….
A mural tucked away in one of the side streets….
Out the front of one of the many temples buckets of curd(I think) being distributed free….
Shrines abound …these two tucked under the spreading shade of a neem tree seem fairly popular.
To be cont…
Its Sunday night….so its busier than other nights…tho this ceremony happens every day morning and night. Haridwar is the holiest hindu city in India and people come to give their loved ones the best sendoff….
From all over India.
On arrival in New Delhi…. out of my hotel window…
Huge concrete flyover.. this one with trains.
Local transport….Heading north to Haridwar….
Passing through huge tracks of sugarcane…. an abandoned factory
I found these tree trunks fascinating…
Cows are everywhere….
Crossing the Ganga into Haridwar
Throughout the year millions of Indian families make the pilgrimage to Haridwar to farewell their loved ones and to bathe in the holy waters of Ma Ganga.
I had never seen a lizard that looks like this …. we were on our way from north bali through the mountains to south bali when we came across a scenic viewing area looking out over a beautiful lake situated above Bedugul.
There was also a bat hanging from a post….
The views were amazing!! The sights unusual….
