I went to mumbai in november month and i see the place of essel world & i enjoyed my self lot This is Mumbai's only international-style theme park and amusement centre situated close to Gorai Beach. Special ferries get you across to the park and the entrance fee normally takes care of a fixed number of rides. These include the standard roller coaster and adventure themes, plus a water world section where kids can literally run amok. Summer is usually crowded, but the place also offers low budget monsoon packages and special deals on weekends.   [more]

Taj Mahal is regarded as one of the eight wonders of the world, and some Western historians have noted that its architectural beauty has never been surpassed. So exquisite is the workmanship that the Taj Mahal has been described as "having been designed by giants and finished by jewelers". Taj Mahal means "Crown Palace" and is in fact the most well preserved and architecturally beautiful tomb in the world. It is best described by the English poet, Sir Edwin Arnold, as "Not a piece of architecture, as other buildings are, but the proud passions of an emperor's love wrought in living stones." Tourists from all over the world visit Agra not to see the ruins of the red sandstone fortress built by the Mughal emperors but to make a pilgrimage to Taj Mahal, India's most famous architectural wonder.   [more]

As soon as you walk through the archway to the entrance you become totaly captivated from the first moment you see the Taj Mahal sitting in the sun, you could be forgiven for thinking that this ultimate sign of love could be made of wax and would melt away if you take your eyes off it.

Visiting Haji Ali Mosque was the most mesmerizing feeling. One should surely visit this Dargah to feel the prevailing spirituality. There is a cemented walkway that goes out, which becomes covered with water during high tide. There is always a troupe playing and singing religious songs and that is a very nice experience. And the best part of the Dargah is that people from all the religions are free to visit.   [more]

Roam the lanes of Udaipur and you will find anything & everything. There are so many stalls, and I suggest that you take your time, because there is much to see.
