Trips from BITS

These are the places I had been to, while I was studying at BITS. Most of these trips were during semester breaks or/and internships, so I managed to write detailed posts about only a few of them.

I was learning about the different platforms and had shifted my blog many times in the beginning before settling for wordpress, I missed out on posts that I could’ve written. But still, I enjoyed clicking at these places and perhaps would visit them again in future!

Royal Rajasthan – Udaipur

I had the chance to go to Udaipur last weekend. It’s a beautiful city, erstwhile capital of Mewar Kingdom and has been called the “Venice of the East” due to its lake side hotels and forts. Udaipur also has the national honor of being called the City of Lakes and that’s how it is popular in the country. Here is a link to my photo album on Udaipur Udaipur is close to 600 km from Pilani and like my last few trips, this trip was also planned just a day before we actually had to travel. Without any train ticket, […]

Jaisalmer Desert Festival

I was at Jaisalmer last weekend and I had gone there to attend the annual Desert Festival of Jaisalmer and what a trip it proved to be!

The city is famous for its fort which is not an ordinary fort, atleast I’ve not seen something as grand […]

Taj Mahal

The Taj Mahal looms fairytale-like from the banks of the Yamuna River. It’s India’s most recognized monument and is also one of the Seven Wonders of the World. The Taj Mahal has a rich history dating back to 1630 AD. It’s made out of marble and took 22 years and 20 000 workers to complete. Words cannot do the Taj Mahal justice, its incredible detail simply has to be seen to be appreciated.      The Taj is the most beautiful monument built by the Mughals, the Muslim rulers of India. Taj Mahal is built entirely of white marble. Its […]

Temples of Khajuraho

A picture can speak a thousand words but one visit to Khajuraho is worth a thousand pictures. The Temples at Khajuraho are known worldwide, they are famous for their rich Hindu architecture, their size and also for the carvings on their walls. I always wanted to go and see the temples myself and finally this month, i got the opportunity i was waiting for! I was at Jhansi for my summer internship at BHEL, where i am designing locomotive engines along with my batchmates from BITS Pilani. As a part of weekend ritual where we hunt for good places to visit, […]
