It only took me couple of blocks away to fall in love with this place
Terra mia, ogni volta che ti ammiro resto a bocca aperta. 💚
We end our series on Majuli with a quote by the eminent social reformer and Bhakti poet of the 16th Century- Srimanta Sankardev, fondly known as the Father of Assamese Culture. “Thy palm is like the lotus. Thine eyes are like the lotus petals.
Thou art the consumer of worldly afflictions. Thou art the sleeper in deep forest.
Thou art omnipresent and inner soul of all.
Thou constantly removest my fear and vouchsafest my safety.
Thou art the wielder of large swift arrows. Thou art the destroyer of the ten-headed demon.
Thou art the rider of the bird (Garuda) and the uplifter of the mountain. Thou art the reposer on the hooded serpent (Ananta). Thou art the dispeller of worldly sins. Thou art the saviour from earthly grief.
Thou art the giver of final beatitude. O lotus-eyed Lord (I pray thee).”
- Srimanta Sankardev

🗻⛺The Manimahesh Kailash Peak, also known as Chamba Kailash, which stands towering high over the Manimahesh Lake, is believed to be the abode of Lord Shiva, the (Hindu deity). It is located in the Bharmour subdivision of the Chamba district in the Indian state of Himachal Pradesh.The peak is 26 kilometres (16 mi) from Bharmour in the Budhil valley.
It is one of the major pilgrimage sites in Himachal Pradesh. The Manimahesh Lake is at the base of the Kailash peak at 5,653 metres (18,547 ft) and both are held in deep veneration by people of Himachal Pradesh, particularly the Gaddi tribes of the region, as the abode of Lord Shiva. In the month of Bhadon, on the eighth day of the new moon period a fair is held in the precincts of the lake that attracts thousands of pilgrims.
🏘 Manimahesh Kailash has not been successfully summitted by mountaineers and is thus a virgin peak. An attempt to climb the peak in 1968 by an Indo–Japanese team led by Nandini Patel was aborted. This failure is attributed to the divine prowess of the peak since it is revered as the holy mountain of Chamba according to the staunch devotees of the Manimahesh Lake and the peak.
Manimahesh Lake (also known as Dal Lake, Manimahesh) is a high altitude lake (elevation 4,080 metres (13,390 ft)) situated close to the Manimahesh Kailash Peak in the Pir Panjal Range of the Himalayas, in the Bharmour subdivision of Chamba district of the Indian state of Himachal Pradesh.
Location: Manimahesh ( Himachal Pradesh)

When you gaze out at God’s beautiful creation, what dreams speak to your heart?
If I had a dollar for every condescending commentaries about East Asian stereotypes I received I would be on Forbes 30 under 30.
Weekend plans? Up in the air! 🎈✨🎈Double tap if you're as happy as we are that it's Friday! ♥️♥️ (📷:@hallie_duesenberg
Went for a beautiful meal with the family this evening to celebrate my 23rd birthday 🍾🎉 before I move into my apartment up north tomorrow to start my final year at uni 🙄🚀😋 #sushi
I was lucky enough to catch a glimpse of these magnificent creatures when I visited Borneo in March this year. The baby doing a facepalm always has me in stitches 🤣🤣.
Some of you may remember seeing this place during scenes in the Game of Thrones series. This is the beautiful Valetta in Malta. I was lucky enough to visit this place by cruise and this is how I managed to get this shot from the sea.
The Great Pyramids of Giza are a must visit if you're ever in Egypt. The only remaining 7 Wonders of the Ancient World, they are a sight to behold.
Watch out for the annoying touts that try and sell you things though. They kinda ruin the atmosphere a little when you are there.
Someone take me back to Monaco! Look at those views of Port Hercule from the old town.
So after the poll, you guys picked this picture of the Colosseum for me to share! Enjoy.
The stunning Library of Celsus in the ancient city of Ephesus, Turkey. Although this is where one of the Ancient Wonders of the World - The Temple of Artemis is housed, the Library is the thing to see here. (All that is left of the Temple is one solitary pillar). This city was visited by Cleopatra and Marc Antony.
The Arno river with the stunning Ponte Vecchio at the far right. Italy is one of my favourite places in the world. Such a beautiful country. There is so much to do in Florence, from Museums to Art Galleries to eating Gelato - there's something for everyone!!
It's cold, rainy days like this that makes me want to go back to Malaysia for the heat and sun ☀️🌡!!
