Shore Temple in Mahabalipuram, and 5 reasons to see it

Shore Temple in Mahabalipuram, and 5 reasons to see it


Shore Temple is located by the sea in the East Coast of India and it is said to have been built in 700 – 728 AD. Here’s 5 reasons why you should go and see this Hindu temple by the Bay of Bengal, which has survived over 2500 years by the sea and even a tsunami –

5 reasons to see the Shore Temple in Mahabalipuram

  1. Shore Temple is a UNESCO World Heritage Monument. 
  2. It is one of the oldest structural stone temples of South India.
  3. Shore Temple is beautiful and impressive to look and experience at.
  4. It is located by the Bay of Bengal, so you get to see the East Coast of India at the same time.
  5. Mahabalipuram Dance Festival is held by this site, to celebrate traditional Indian dance.

The attached photographs from Mahabalipuram show you the clear blue sky on a typical hot and sunny day in Tamil Nadu and the green nature surrounding the Shore Temples.

In addition to lions and Nandi, many Gods and Goddesses were also carved in the temple stones as you can see from the images –

Essential Delhi sights -video

Essential Delhi sights -video

Last week I had the joy and honor to experience the Incredible India Road Show in Helsinki, Finland and update my knowledge about the travel destinations and other travel related issues concerning India.

After 13 years of blogging in Finnish and in English, especially about Goa, India and the Indian art and culture and Bollywood, I was happy to hear that there is a huge growth in India with tourist arrivals from Nordic countries.

It was told that travelling to India is becoming easier: There is now E-visa for 166 countries with 60 days validity and some single entries can be converted to double/triple entries and extending E-visa is also possible for various segments like tourist, medical and business.

And nowadays India has also got some tourist friendly initiatives like 24/7 toll free multilingual tourist helpline and India is also a Wi-Fi enabled tourist destination in railway stations and airports.

Delhi, being the capital of India, is one of its fastest growing cities and from Delhi you can get almost anywhere in India, by road, air and railways.

Delhi itself is divided into two, the new and the old Delhi, and you can see the remains of seven important capitals there, like Shahjahanabad and Qutub Minar, on which the modern day Delhi is built.

I have told about them many essential sights of Delhi for travellers here, but now, let me update the photos from 2007, back when the blogging speed was next to impossible and computer programs mostly incompatible with each other.

Here are the essential Delhi sights photographed during 2007-2014 in a shortvideo, do check it out:

 

Many new videos are also on their way, so do subscribe Indivue blog and vlog so that you don’t miss a thing!

Trip to the top of the Eiffel Tower (video preview)

Trip to the top of the Eiffel Tower (video preview)

Today’s video comes from Paris and from the most famous sight in there – the Eiffel Tower. I shot this video to remember and to show what it’s like to travel up there to the top of the Eiffel Tower. And then again coming back down on the ground. You know the elevator inside the Eiffel Tower does not take you quite to the top. This means you have to walk the last stairs all by yourself.

But it’s really worth all the cost and the trouble going up to the Eiffel Tower. With the trouble I mean queueing during a hot day and travelling high up in a small elevator. Travelling together in a small place with all them unknown people whose language you don’t even know to speak. Watching the ground beneath you reciding knowing there is no turning back. But the view from there, from the top of the Eiffel Tower, is really something. Spectacular, unforgettable and worth all the cost and trouble, like I said. And then again, in the night time, when you are walking the Parisian streets in the centre, the view of the lights in the Eiffel Tower really bring about something indescribable for a tourist.

You might also be interested in the article I wrote in Finnish about the Best sights in Paris. It is telling about the best hotels, restaurants and Indian restaurants in Paris also, back in 2017. The interesting point to be made was that an Indian restaurant in Paris, for which Indivue would give five stars for the taste, was only at 12159th position in TripAdvisor. – Makes you wonder how good food there might be in the first 100 restaurants in Paris. Maybe this is the reason why they had to invent them Michelin stars. See also the video of the Best sights in Paris.

But back to this video – After watching it, this short video about the trip to the top of the Eiffel Tower and back on the ground, you will get to see more YouTube videos about the Eiffel Tower and things related. So enjoy your visual adventure and do subscribe Indivue’s YouTube -channel for more travel & art -videos to come!

 

Bandra Worli Sea Link -bridge (video preview)

Bandra Worli Sea Link -bridge (video preview)

Back in 2005, the trip from Mumbai airport to Colaba, in the Southern Mumbai, took some one hour, when you had to drive through the whole city of Mumbai. Although the trip through the city was a very thrilling experience for a first timer, it was still nice to experience this Bandra Worli Sea Link -bridge which they had built on the sea, to make the travelling in Mumbai a lot easier and much faster, ten years later – In 2015 a taxi from Mumbai airport to Colaba took more than half an hour less of your time. Less than thirty minutes outside rush hour.

During night time this Bandra Worli Sea Link -bridge is lit nicely and you can enjoy the night time view along with the traffic lights and skyscraper lights from hotels like Taj Lands End in Bandra. This is a very much recommendable sight during night, I must say. Unfortunately this hotel did not have a roof top terrace with a restaurant – That would have really crown it all.

Day time you can visit the near by Bandra Fort and park and then watch the sun set in the horizon, behind the Arabian Sea. Sunset on the rocks in Bandra Bandstand will look something like in the video you will find in the link.

Find a short video about Bandra in Mumbai including the before mentioned nighttime view of Bandra Worli Sea Link -bridge and Bandra Fort here. The music and photos in the video are by Indivue.

More articles and photos from Mumbai in Finnish can be found here 

and more photos and articles about Mumbai in English you find here.

After this short video of Bandra Worli Sea Link -bridge more YouTube-videos will follow, so enjoy the visual adventure and remember to subscribe Indivue for more videos to come!
