On the occasion of World Photographers Day 2018, I would like to share a photograph I had taken during a trip to North India in 2014, of one of the most photographed monument in the world; The Taj Mahal. #tajmahal #india #mughal #monument

Chunchunkatte falls... a spectacle...

Water level up by about 25 feet at Kappadi... River Cauvery...

Brown in the park...

Tibetan Senior Citizens walking past the prayer wheels @ the Kalachakra Temple, McLeodGanj... #himachal #mcleodganj #tibetanculture

The town of roses, Manali - apart from being a major holiday destination in the Himalayas - the water sports, the valley sports, snow clad mountains, atv rides, lovely weather, the raging Beas river; if there’s one other thing I was bewitched about was the beautiful roses we saw almost everywhere we went in Manali. Like these pink roses at the Hidimba temple compound. We also visited a lovely Italian restaurant called ‘Rose Garden’, set in a pretty little home garden and enjoyed some lip smacking wood-fire pizzas. #himachal #manali #hadimbatemple #pinkroses

Dragon fly - found this brightly coloured dragonfly on a bench in Woodville Palace Shimla. Can someone identify/name it?
Looked up, guess it’s the yellow-tailed ashy skimmer... not sure though.

Viceregal Lodge / Rashtrapati Niwas / IIAS - this magnificent building has played many roles but has retained its past glory & is a stunner even today. Located on the outskirts of Shimla, this building was the former summer residence of the Viceroy of India. After Independence it was renamed as Rashtrapati Niwas and was to be the summer residence of the Hon’ble President of India. However during the period of Dr. S. Radhakrishnan this building was handed over to the department of Education and today the Indian Institute of Advanced Study calls it Home. Was on a tight schedule hence couldn’t visit the museum inside the Lodge, will definitely want to spend a day here on my next visit. A must see while in Shimla... #shimla #iias #rashtrapathiniwas #himachal #history #monument

Shimla Reserve Forest Sanctuary... a panoramic view... #shimla #himachal #india #forests

Shimla town... chaotic yet in order... wonderful town, loved the walk on the Mall, Lakkar Bazar & the traffic free zones... lovely views, good shopping & yummy delectables... #shimla #himachal #india #hillstation #instagram #nikon

The Woodville Palace Hotel, Shimla. A heritage palace hotel.

And life goes on... A Himachali herdsman, herding goats in the hills ‘Devbhumi’... #himachal #kullu #manali
