Golden Temple

Few months ago, I visited pilgrimage temple of Sikhism “Golden Temple”. It is also called “Darbar Sahib” or “Harmandir Sahib”. It is located in Amritsar, Punjab. Here are some photos of the holy land.

Matheran

Matheran is a hill station between Mumbai and Pune, district Karjat. As per Wikipedia, it is 90 km from Mumbai and 120 km from Pune. Matheran means “forest on the forehead” (of the mountains).

We get the chance to visit the place last weekend. It was a wonderful experience. As mentioned in Wiki “it is Asia’s only automobile free hill station” but there are options of horses and hand pulled rickshaw although we opted to walk. We also get the chance to enjoy the toy train journey. Here are some pictures of a place blessed with uncanny natural beauty.
