25 ways to travel in India

INDIVUE’s travelblog started in 2005, both in Finnish and in English, and now in 2019 it is time to start the INDIVUE IGTV.

The first video of INDIVUE IGTV is called The 25 ways to travel in India. It is having some 25 behind the scenes -videos about how the trips in India have been made.

The video starts with the photographer, ie me, walking on the stones of Cabo De Rama in Goa. In the next scene you can see landing in Mumbai during sunset time.

After landing in Mumbai comes the floating scene from the sea in front of the Gateway of India. That scene was captured when I was on my way to the Elephanta Caves in 2006. From there the video takes you up all the way to Rishikesh and on the bridge crossing the river Ganges.

After Rishikesh comes the camel ride in Agra and from there the video takes you to Delhi and Qtub Minar. At this point I truly recommend you have the sound on the video. Then you can hear all the wonderful Indian birds singing in the background.

From Delhi the video goes back to more North of India and it takes you to a ride in a taxi right in the middle of the typical Indian traffic there, more than ten years back. After that the video goes with a cable car to the top of Mansa Devi in Haridwar, Uttarakhand.

From Mansa Devi the video goes back to Delhi and you can see a local bus and local traffic there. After that another ride takes you to the India Gate in Delhi. It is by the way a similar type of monument you saw in Mumbai in the beginning of this video.

From India Gate in Delhi the video jumps up to a beach in South Goa. On that Goan beach you can see tanned Westerners riding bicycles on the beach. After that the trip continues with a rickshaw in Goa and then from Margao bus-stand it jumps all the way to the other side of India, and to a rickshaw ride in Chennai.

In the middle of the video you are taken back to Margao, and to the local train station. There you can hear a water seller at work while people are waiting for the train. The next scene takes you far to Jaipur, where you can see Jal Mahal in the night time while walking by the water.

From Jaipur the video takes you to the high hilly roads of North India and from there back to landing in Goa. After that the video jumps again from the West coast of India to a coastal road in East India and from South-East India and Tamil Nadu it goes back to North and Agra in Uttar Pradesh.

Next scene comes from train ride somewhere in-between Chennai to Goa. After that the video takes you in the middle of the night time traffic in Jaipur. From Jaipur the trip continues with a horse ride in Agra and from there through the air you’re taken back to the West coast of India, and in the middle of the Fleamarket in Anjuna. Last scenes of the video come from the lovely small roads of Goa and the video ends up with a scene lost in Chennai.

This was the content of this video 25 ways to travel in India, broadly spoken. Enjoy your watching experience also with volume and hear all the authentic sounds from India, uncut.

Taj Mahal in one minute

What if it was possible to experience Taj Mahal in one minute – what should that experience have?

At least Taj Mahal at different times of the day – Taj Mahal at sunrise, in the middle of the day, Taj Mahal in the afternoon, Taj Mahal at sunset and Taj Mahal in the night time.

All this, and immediately in the beginning of the video below, you will see what Taj Mahal looks like before the sunrise, in the twilight, when in reality the Muslim prayer invitations are echoed outside, and how the first sun rays of the morning make the Taj Mahal dome roof glow.

You can also see how the Taj Mahal, known also as Taj-Bibi-ra-Rauza, the Garden-Tomb of the Taj Queen, looks like when seen from the Red Fort in Agra – That is where the ruler Shah Jahan spent his last years of life in prison, captured by his son, looking at the beautiful Taj Mahal. Mausoleum, built for his wife, Mumtaz Mahal, as a symbol of eternal love. Historical writings tell us that Mumtaz Mahal, Arjumand Banu Begum by her birth name, had died in her 14th childbirth.

The video will also show brick-red gate walls flanking the park and fountain next to Taj Mahal. The main entrance for Taj Mahal park area is through the brick-red wall gate. In addition, you can see, for example, a red mosque building in the courtyard. The two other queens of Shan Jahan, living under the shadow of Mumtaz, where also buried in this area and have their tombs there.

From the video you can see how many tourists there are around Taj Mahal. Tourists from all over India and around the world have come to see this one of the world’s 7 miracles, which is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site, as is also the Red Fort, near Taj Mahal in Agra. Tourists walk in the mausoleum and around it with bare foot or recyclable shoe covers to keep the Taj Mahal’s marble floors clean and undamaged.

The first images of this video were photoshot in 2007 and this video has been shot in various occasions in winter as well as in summer time before the monsoon.
During the winter months in January, people in Agra wore long-sleeved wool and top coats, but in the summer, short-sleeved kurta-shirts and saritops were common.

Taj Mahal literally dazzles its viewer while the sun is shining as the bright sun is reflected in so many different ways from the skilful walls of that building. You get some idea of the size of Taj Mahal when you look at the pictures of tourists in front of the Taj Mahal.
This video Taj Mahal in one minute takes its viewer also very near of Taj Mahal, to the contact distance – you can see close-ups of Taj Mahal wall decorations and wall embossings.

You can also see what the environment of Taj Mahal looks like from inside the building – but Mumtaz Mahal’s and Shah Jahan’s marble tombstones within the mausoleum are left as a mystery to the viewer.

Taj Mahal was built on the banks of the Yamuna River in Agra, Uttar Pradesh, India, which is also seen on this video, and it took 11 years to build this mausoleum. The construction of the other buildings and the park surrounding the Taj Mahal continued for a few more years on top of that.
What else in this world has been built for so long?

About Taj Mahal – experiences

Hardly any words can fully describe the architectural beauty of Taj Mahal. And even though the pictures tell a lot, they do not cover exhaustively the experience of Taj Mahal. Like how cold the Taj Mahal’s marble stone feels, how dazzling the marble is in the sunshine, how many shades of white can be found on the Taj Mahal’s surface, how beautiful is the aquamarine colour in the Taj Mahal’s fountain, how high is the Taj Mahal in relation to the adjacent Yamuna River and what kind of a great landscape opens up behind the Taj Mahal. Or how do the local inhabitants cool off by the Yamuna River during the summer heat.

Or how do you feel after a long journey, on a hot day in India, after all the challenges associated with traveling, when you are finally there in Agra. And after having paid the entrance fee to the Taj Mahal, and heading among other people towards the red arch through which you have to enter, you can finally see somewhere behind the people’s shoulders something dazzling white blinking, and when you go through the gate, all of this opens up to you –

Note: One can adjust the speed of a YouTube -video to one’s liking.

About the beaches in Gokarn

Gokarn Beach is easy to reach from the main village but for Kudley Beach you need to cross a high hill in order to reach there. For Om Beach you need to take rickshaw ride as well as to the Paradise Beach, but for the Paradise Beach you still need to walk rather long time in the midst of the forest in order to reach that beach. Alternatively you can go by a boat to any of these beaches.
