Tirupati Rushivan Trip
Here some of pics with this great tour with my loving friends.. Enjoy a lot at this place with rides and sports. Great place at near river view.
God’s Own Country…!
Kerala was one of the places I always wanted to visit….even before the state tourism department coined the famous catchline”God’s Own Country…!”
I traveled to Munnar from Cochin with my family..it take four hours drive to reach the place..and it’s a total different season there!!!!..
Munnar is popularly known as Darjeeling of the south..it is full of tea estates and the famous nilgiri tea comes from here…
The ancient story-telling art of Kathakali is one of the most enthralling features of Kerala.We enjoyed kathakali dance
We enjoyed a wonderful day in the houseboat..it took me through the backwaters into a lake..had a scrumptious lunch in middle of the lake..and spent a delightful evening in the houseboat……
My trip was really wonderful..though I feel I need to come back to this place again…there are so many things I haven’t seen yet…and the people here..right from my driver, to the shopkeepers, hotel attendants and boatmen ferrying me…were so wonderful, polite and ever smiling…I don’t wonder why…if I lived in this green haven …Truly..it’s god’s own country…
Thank you world glance with utkarsh to giving this kind of stuff…

Gokarna, India, Karnataka
Gokarna mahabaleshwaram !! What s beautiful place to visit. A holy pilgrim situated at the borders of Maharashtra, Karnataka and Goa. A pilgrim where heart of lord shiva is worshipped in the form of “atmalinga”
The story connects us in the history where Ravana asked to give shiva his atma linga and lord shiva who is also said to be Bholenath, without hesitation gave it as well. As lord shiva had instructed Ravana not to keep it on ground before reaching lanka, if it does then the linga will get fixed at the same place. For saving the world all other lords and devgan took help of shri ganesh and created a situation where ravana did not had any option to give the atma linga in the hands of ganesha and in turn ganesha to keep it on the ground surface. With the help of Lord ganesh, other devgan were able to get the atmalinga back.
That’s the same place Gokarna. Me and my mom were really enjoyed the scenic beauty along with the morning chants in all the temples in the village. Though being a small village it has several big temples devoted to several deities. The red soil, the banana and coconut trees and the beautiful beaches will really puts your mind and soul in peace. A special beach named as OM beach is also in gokarna, where you can really see the shape of OM while standing at the Ram mandir which is very near to big sea. Oct & Nov are the best time to visit Gokarna, it’s a village on the railway track hence commuting is also very easy. Staying and Good healthy food will make your journey a wonderful one.

Trivandrum city, Kerala
Around 40 kilometers from the heart of Trivandrum city, lies your journey through the most beautiful backwaters of Kerala,named Poovar.
We hired a cab and reached the place in around an hour. After haggling a bit over the tickets( eventually settling on 3000 Rs for three people), we were
ready to commence our journey on the motor boat kept ready for us at the shore. Life jackets were provided for our safety and the our guide was ready to swirl the boat through the intricacies of the river flowing through this small village.
Mangrove forests surrounded a major chunk of this island. With such a diversity of vegetation, it wasn’t hard to spot ducks and kingfishers making their abodes in this heaven. Our guide informed us that many of the groves were poisonous in nature. The canals meandered amongst the trees, traversing through coconut grooves and swamps. Finally we reached the Golden Sand beach. On one side of the river, we could view floating restaurants and posh resorts , while the side facing the beach welcomed us with the roar of waves. The waves were pretty strong and vigilante lifeguards were on their toes. The Poovar lake holds a statue of Mother Mary holding baby Jesus. Our guide showed us a rock laid in the midst of the water, a carving in the shape of an elephant. Thus, it has gained the name Elephant rock.
Driving our way back, our guide enlightened us about the various activities and ‘Ayurvedic’ health treatments that keep going round the clock in the unique heritage resorts of Poovar, a few names being Isola Di Cocco (the island of coconuts), Club Mahindra and many more.
