top 5 monsoon destinations

No other climatic phenomenon is more awaited the Indian sub-continent more than the monsoon. The word evokes a sense of respite and relief, and the promise of rejuvenationRains have been celebrated in India since time immemorial. Left parched and dry by the hot Indian summer, the showers come as a welcome respite. So much so, that rains have been celebrated in songs, movies and literature. Rites and rituals have been performed to beseech the gods to shower their blessings in the form of rains.Rains have always evoked nostalgic memories. Getting drenched in rains, sipping hot tea and biting into piping hot bhajiyas is on everyone’s wish-list during the rains. Trekking, especially in the Western Ghats, is a popular activity.
We pick five of our favourite monsoon destinations and images that represent them

No other province eagerly awaits rains like the desert state of Rajasthan. After three long months of summer, rains provide the much-needed relief to the land which remains arid for most part of the year.
The month of Shravan (which coincides with July-August) is also the occasion for the Teej festival. Celebrated to mark the advent of monsoon, traditionally, swings are hung from trees for women to enjoy and pray for marital bliss.

The southern state is the first to receive the monsoon every year. Though Kerala remains covered under a thick green cover through the year, the advent of rains adds a special hue to it. With scores of tourists visiting Kerala during the rains, special packages are offered to entice visitors.
You might not be dry for too long during the monsoons in Kerala, but it’s the ideal time for some Ayurvedic rejuvenation. Imagine sitting on an easy chair and listening to the pitter patter of rains. And we won’t blame you for booking your tickets in minutes.

Geographically, Ladakh is in the rain shadow area which is why it is an ideal destination during the monsoons. But a few rain-laden clouds do break through the mountains and the spectacle of clouds kissing Himalayan peaks in the backdrop of the barren splendour of Ladakh is a sight to behold.

The entire Konkan stretch undergoes transformation with the first rains. Carpeted in a thick blanket of green, Konkan is a sight to behold during monsoon.
Besides natural beauty, Konkan is rich in history. Of strategic importance, Konkan is closely associated with King Shivaji and the Marathas. Littered with mountain forts and citadels, the pleasure of trekking to the historical remnants during the rains is a perfect way to enjoy the season. Konkan also offers several scenic beaches to enjoy the monsoon magic.

Jog Falls :-
Created by the Sharavathi River, it is the second-highest waterfall in India. Falling from a height of 830 ft, it is a major tourist attraction located in Sagara in Shimoga district of Karnataka. The four streams that make up the fall have been named for the way water falls from each of them – Raja (majestic), Rani (graceful), Roarer (deafening) and Rocket (swift).

  Phone: 1800 233 7951
The main temple at Dwarka, situated on Gomti creek, is known as jagat mandir (universal shrine) or trilok sundar (the most beautiful in all the three worlds). Originally believed to be built by Vajranabh, the great grandson of Lord Krishna, more than 2500 years ago, it is a glorious structure seeming to rise from the waters of the Arabian Sea. Its exquisitely carved shikhar, reaching 43 m high and the huge flag made from 52 yards of cloth, can be seen from as far away as 10 km. The grandeur of the temple is enhanced by the flight of 56 steps leading to the rear side of the edifice on the side of the river Gomti. The temple is built of soft limestone and consists of a sanctum, vestibule and a rectangular hall with porches on three sides. There are two gateways: swarga dwar (gate to the heavens), where pilgrims enter, and moksha dwar (gate to liberation), where pilgrims exit.

Ram Mandir ,Ayodhya


 Ayodhya, also known as Saket, is an ancient city of India, believed to be the birthplace of Rama and setting of the epic Ramayana. It is adjacent to Faizabad city at the south end in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh.
yodhya (also Oudh or Awadh), an ancient city, is one of the seven sacred cities of the Hindus. In the Ramayana, Lord Rama was born here during the reign of his father, Dasaratha, in what was then a prosperous, well fortified city with a large population. In traditional history, it was the early capital of the kingdom of Kosala, while, in Buddha's time (6th-5th century BCE), Shravasti became the kingdom's chief city. Scholars equate Ayodhya with the city of Saketa, where the Buddha is said to have briefly lived. Its later importance as a Buddhist centre was attested by the Chinese Buddhist monk Fa-hsien in the 5th century CE who saw 100 monasteries here. Other monuments, including a stupa (shrine), were apparently built by Ashoka in the 3rd century BCE.
The Kanauj kingdom arose here in the 11-12th centuries. Later part of the Delhi sultanate, the Jaunpur kingdom, and the Mughal Empire, Oudh gained a degree of independence in early 18th century, before its subordination to the British East India Company in 1764 and annexation by the British in 1856; this and the subsequent loss of hereditary land revenue rights helped precipitate the Indian Mutiny of 1857. Despite the city's great age, few ancient monuments survive. Its temples and bathing ghats by the river Saryu are of no great age. Near the modern city are several mounds marking the site of ancient Ayodhya that have not yet been adequately explored by archaeologists.Ayodhya's Babri Masjid was built in the early 16th century by the Mughal emperor Babur on a site believed to be Rama's birthplace and the location of an ancient Hindu temple, the Ram Janmabhoomi. Because of its significance to both Hindus and Muslims, the site was often a matter of contention. In 1990, riots in northern India followed the storming of the mosque by militant Hindus intent on erecting a temple on the site; the ensuing crisis brought down the Indian government. Two years later, on 6 Dec 1992, the three-story mosque was demolished in a few hours by a mob of Hindu fanatics. More than 1,000 people died in the rioting that swept through India following the mosque's destruction.

Chand Baori , Abhaneri, Dausa,Rajasthan

Chand Baori Abhaneri

The Chand Baori is a stepwell built over a thousand years ago in the Abhaneri village of Rajasthan.
It is one of the largest stepwells in the world and also one of the most beautiful ones.
 Located in the eastern part of the province of Rajasthan, it was built by King Chanda somewhere in the 9th century.
The Chand Baori is not an easy landmark to find, thus it is one of the hidden secrets of India

  Stepwells, also called bawdi or baori, are unique to this nation.  The wells have steps built into the sides that lead down to the water.
Chand Baori one was built during the 8th and 9th centuries and has 3,500 narrow steps arranged in perfect symmetry, which descend 20m to the bottom of the well.
Centuries ago, the stepwells were built in the arid zones of Rajasthan to provide water all year through.Today, the construction is not used as a well anymore but its exquisite geometry attracts local and international visitors alike.About 64 feet deep, it is India's largest and deepest stepwells with 13 floors and was built in the 9th century for water harvesting.hand Baori inside viewIt was so named as it was built by King Chand Raja from the Gujara Pratihara clan, who claim to be the descendant of Lord Ram's younger brother Laxman.
The Pratihara dynasty was at their peak during 6th-10th century AD, and also ruled over other parts of Rajasthan. Their capital was Mandore near Jodhpur.The baori has a precise geometrical pattern, hard to find in this age.
The steps form a magical maze and the consequent play of light and shadow on the structure gives it a captivating look.It has an enclosed rectangular courtyard kind of structure. Upon entering you reach a jharokha (windows).
Descending the stairs on the left, you can see the cavernous baori narrowing towards the bottom, criss-crossed with double flights of steps on three sides to reach the water surface down below.
The stairs encircle the water on the three sides while the fourth side boasts of a pavillion with three storeys with beautiful carved jharokhas, galleries supported on pillars and two projecting balconies enshrining beautiful sculptures.

Harshat Mata Temple
the Chand Baori is not the only attraction in Abhaneri.
Adjoining the baori is the architecturally splendid and sculpturally beautiful Harshat Mata temple which was built between the 7th-8th centuries, but was destroyed and damaged by Mahmud Ghazni.
Many of its pillars, columns, statues now lie scattered in the temple courtyard and in the corridors of the structure. The temple was dedicated to Harshat Mata, believed to be the goddess of happiness and joy, who spread her glow and brightness (abha) around the town.
That is why the small village was called the Abhanagri (city of brightness), which over the centuries has become Abhaneri.
The scene from the temple courtyard is picturesque with green fields, narrow village roads, tiny houses and the sun playing hide and seek on the landscape.

Om Banna Baba,Pali near Jodhpur

Om Banna Baba,Pali near Jodhpur Rajasthan:-

The beautiful state “Rajasthan” is perfect and really the land of miracles. Right here every single place can put a surprise. It’s a story of person – Om Banna who lived in Chottila village. Om Singh was the son of Jog Singh, who was the head of cattle village, which is only about three km away from Banna village. When the youngsters belong to Rajaputra family use to suffix Banna to their names, Om Singh was recognized as Om Banna.

History of Om banna:-
Om Banna got married and purchased a bullet bike quickly after his wedding. His attraction towards his bullet was very uncommon. In 1988, 24 years old Om Singh Rathore recognized as Om Banna, was gone from the city known as Bangdi near Sanderao of Pali to Chotila then suddenly om Banna get unbalanced from his motorbike and hit a tree. Om Banna was killed immediately, his bike dropping into a close by dump. The early morning after the incident, regional cops took the bike to a native police station. The next day it was noted to have gone away from the police station and was discovered back in the accident spot. The police, one time again, took the motorbike to the police station and this time draining its petrol reservoir and placing it under secure and chain to avoid its removing. Regardless of their attempts, the next morning once again it’s gone away and was found at the incident spot. Local people say that the motorbike kept coming back again to the similar ditch. It turned away every effort by police to hold it at the nearby police station; the bike was often come back to the similar location before daybreak.
Accomplishing all the traditions, the family was in strong sadness because of the Om Banna accident. Shortly Om Banna made a physical appearance in his grandmother’s dreams questioning for two yards of lands to build a temple. This was the cause that they built the temple at that spot. This came to be viewed as a wonder by nearby people, and they started to worship the “Om Banna’s Bullet Bike.” The News flash of the wonder motorbike passes onto the area villages, and afterwards they made a temple to worship it. That temple is regarded as “Temple of Bullet Baba’s.” It is considered that Om Banna’s soul assists troubled tourists. This temple consists of a tree decorated with products like bangles, jewelry and red colored piece of string. This Om Banna’s temple next to the Enfield motorbike has a huge image of Singh.

Real Story after the death of baba’s:-
 One more story is that, throughout the night time of Banna’s death, the Om Banna spirit expected to lift from a truck owner, which was moving though the highway. When it arrived at the incident spot, Banna requested the truck owner to hit the horn. For whatever reason you are going forward, that would be satisfied, Banna stated and gone away. The enthusiasts say that they hear the shout of his bullet bike in the late night from the day on which he passed away. Also consider that his spirit might be with the motorcycle still now.
Four years back, the customs started in the temple. The temple has now a priest. Although listening to the term temple, don’t think its as big setting building. Only basement had been constructed with the tree where the bullet was striking. They’re placed a picture of Om Banna and an idol created of marble. The prayers are getting done there. The enthusiasts carry out the libation of alcohol in the idol. At the rear of that bullet was placed under a covered area. The supporters said throughout Ashatmi day, the bullet begins on its own! An aspect of the petrol tank has been used out.The folks residing around the town have an excellent perception over Baba. Throughout wedding, the bride and groom come and pray there. The associates of Rajputra families carry their newborn baby there. They see Banna as their god. The people carry out the ritual of extracting their baby’s tresses here. As the intake of alcohol is identified among the Rajputras, the light beer is provided here.Around the temple few shops are viewed like in temple celebrations. All the prayer products and liquor for only as offerings to Baba etc. are available at here to purchase. The endless clamor of vehicle horns would stab your ears and putting in that was the devotional music played via the cone loudspeaker. After praying the Baba and heading towards Jodhpur.

Triveni Sangam

Triveni Sangam:- 

 The Triveni Sangam in Allahabad is a confluence of 3 rivers, the Ganges, Yamuna, and Saraswati. Of these three, the river Saraswati is invisible and is said to flow underground and join the other two rivers from below. Here the muddy and pale-yellow waters of the Ganges merge with the blue waters of Yamuna. While the Ganges is only 4 feet deep, the Yamuna is 40 feet deep near the point of their nexus. The river Yamuna merges into the Ganges at this point and the Ganges continues on until it meets the sea at the Bay of Bengal. At the confluence of these two great Indian rivers, where the invisible Saraswati conjoins them, many tirtha yatris take boats to bathe from platforms  in the Sangam. This, together with the migratory birds give a picturesque look to the river during the Kumbha Mela, in the month of January. It is believed that all the gods come in human form to take a dip at the sangam and expiate their sins
All over India, the meeting rivers amplify the holiness of the tirtha. Two rivers are better than one three even more auspicious. The great site of the meeting rivers in north India is the sangam, the confluence, of the Ganga and Yamuna at Prayaga, where the city now called Allahabad stands.
The Ganga has long been seen as the white river, bearing the mica laden waters of her Himalayan course, and the Yamuna, the blue river.
This description of the confluence of the Ganga and Yamuna seems to be referred to in one of the latest sections of the Rig Veda, which says,“Those who bathe at the place where the two rivers, white and dark, flow together, rise upto heaven. More than a thousand years later, the classical Sanskrit poet, Kalidasa, describes the confluence of the white”waters of the Ganga with the blue waters of the Yamuna as if they were a string of pearls and sapphires combined, or a garland of white and blue lotuses intertwined.
According to the Puranas, there is also a third river, the Sarasvati,

visit :

Dashaswamedh Ghat:

 Prayag Raj is the king of all pilgrimage centers because Lord Brahma conducted first (pra) ten yajnas (yag) there at Dashaswamedh Ghat also located in Daraganj.
Considering that Lord Brahma lives one hundred celestial years- equivalent to 311 trillion 40 billion earth years, and we are currently in fiftyfifth year of Brahma, and assumimg that Brahma performed first ten Yajnas when he was twenty years of age, it is established that it happened 110 trillions years ago."Lord Brahmā's day, consisting of his 12 hours, lasts 4 billion 320 million years, and his night is of the same duration.

Kumbh Mela: 

In the event of entrance of Jupiter in Aries circle and entrance of Sun and Moon in Capricorn Kumbh Festival is held at Prayag on the lunar conjunction day .
Kumbh Mela is a mass Hindu pilgrimage in which Hindus gather at the Ganges and river Yamuna, where bathing for purification from sin is considered especially efficacious.
The Ardh (half) Kumbh Mela is celebrated every six years at Haridwar and Allahabad, the Purna (complete) Kumbh takes place every twelve years, at four places Allahabad, Haridwar, Ujjain, and Nashik. The Maha (great) Kumbh Mela which comes after 12 'Purna Kumbh Melas', or 144 years, is held at Allahabad.


 The melas that take place along India’s rivers are among the most striking forms of Hindu pilgrimage. Prayaga, the King of Tirthas, also is host to the greatest of all melas. Once a year, during the winter month of Magha, in January and February, the great sandy flood plain of the Triveni becomes a huge encampment of pilgrims. This is called Magha Mela, a monthlong
festival that brings in a steady flow of pilgrims from all over India. It is also a great convocation of gurus and pandits, saints and sadhus.The mountains and rivers of India, along with the gods themselves, come to Prayaga during the month of Magha, joining the vast assembly of pilgrims, sages and saints. Bathing there in Magha is said to free one from rebirth, and so it is that even the gods yearn to come to Prayaga during Magha. The Matsya Purana tells us During the month of Magha, sixty thousand tirthas and six hundred million sacred streams are to be found at the confluence of the Ganga and theYamuna.” One particularly exuberant mahatmya from the Padma Purana claims that although Kashi bestows liberation by the illumining knowledge imparted by the taraka mantra given to all who die there, Prayaga bestows liberation even without knowledge! So it is that this place, they say, is the most sacred on the surface of the earth.

ganga Aarti:
An aarti is a devotional ritual that uses fire as an offering. It's usually made in the form of a lit lamp, and in the case of the Ganges River, a small diya with a candle and flowers that's floated down the river. The offering is made to the Goddess Ganga, also affectionately referred to as Maa Ganga, goddess of the most holy river in India. The aarti takes place facing the river. The lamps are lit and circled around by the pandits (Hindu priests) in a clockwise manner, accompanied by changing or songs in praise of Mother Ganga. The idea is that the lamps acquire the power of the deity. After the ritual is complete, devotees will cup their hands over the flame and raise their palms to their forehead in order to get the Goddess's purification and blessing.

Hanuman Temple:

This temple is unique temple situated in sangam area adjacent to the Allahabad Fort and is rare unique type of temple , because Here the statue of Shri Hanuman Ji is in laying down state.
Therefore for his glimpse devotees have to step down through stairs cases The statue is huge in size .
