Sikh, Buddhist, Hindus, Rewalsar Lake, Mandi,
Rewalsar Lake (Mandi) 

When I was a kid then I used to hear about the Rewalsar town and a small lake situated in the middle of this town from my mother who visited it many times during her childhood. I only got the opportunity to visit Rewalsar town when I was in my twenties and now I have visited it three times. Rewalsar is a popular tourist destination in the Mandi district of Himachal Pradesh and many tourists visit it.  This town is situated just 22 KM away from Mandi city and situated on the old road route which connects Mandi to Punjab.

To reach Rewalsar, you need to take state highway 26 from Mandi or Khalkhar. As we approach the Rewalsar town from Khalkhar side we descend on the road and the lake starts appearing just before reaching the town. Whereas when we come from the Mandi side, then you witness steep ascend on the road.

The main attraction of Rewalsar is its lake which is situated in the middle of the town. Rewalsar is a small town and gives the perfect example of religious harmony because around the lake we can find a Temple, Monastery, and a Gurudwara. Around the lake, we can find many shops of decorative items, garments, and food. In Rewalsar, we can find many small and budget hotels including one by HPDTC Tourist Inn which is mostly my preferred place for food and stay.

Rewalsar

One can find all the shops for all basic necessities in Rewalsar with Post Office, Bank, and ATM. Though, Rewalsar is not situated at a very high altitudes; however, still, it is a good option for small weekend breaks. Day temperature here remains normal whereas nights may become colder.

Nearby Attractions to Rewalsar are Maa Naina Devi Temple situated 11 KM away and Mandi town which is 22 KM away which is known for multiple ancient temples.

Overall Rewalsar is a great place to run away from the summer heat and enjoy some peaceful time. Rewalsar provides a great opportunity to educate yourself and your kids about the different religions.

Fish, Rewalsar, Lake

The other good thing about Rewalsar lake is the abundance of fish at the lake. The fish are so high in number that they sometimes come out of the water and you can even touch them while feeding. To watch the video of fish at Rewalsar Clik Here

Recently, I stayed in one of guest houses run by TTD (Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams) in Tirumala.

The Golden Temple  There is no doubt that The Golden Temple  is also known as Harmandir Sahib or Darbar Sahib is the most beautiful Temple in the world. The Golden Temple got its name from the gold used to cover its outer walls, which gives it a great shine during the day and night. The Golden Temple is the mecca of Sikhism or the holiest place on earth for all Sikhs. I have visited this place a few times and always found it dipped in the love of de votio n. The main Gurdwara at the Golden T emple is surrounded by a water tank and there is only one way to reach there. Light Bulbs in Line at the Top of Golden Temple Amritsar  This design makes it unique and peaceful. At night Golden Temple even looks more beautiful because of lights reflecting from the gold walls. The Golden Temple is situated in the middle of Amritsar city and anyone can reach here easily. Every day more than 1 Lakh devotees visit this place, therefore, we can see a great of people.

Sidh Baba Garibnath Temple, Androli (Una, India)

I love to cover temples of Himachal Pradesh and Today, I will share with you a beautiful temple situated on the bank of the Govind Sagar Lake near Androli village of Himachal Pradesh, we can find this Shiva temple. It got its name of Sidh baba Garibnath because of a Saint with a similar name who meditated at this place. The unique thing about this temple is that it becomes inaccessible during the monsoon due to a rise in the water levels of Govind Sagar Lake. On any ordinary day, we can reach this temple by road, however, during the rainy season when the water level rises then we need the help of boats to reach this temple. This temple looks beautiful in all conditions whether it is submerged in water or out of water. When the temple is out of the water then it offers a very scenic view of Gobind Sagar lake. Every time, you visit this temple, you can find a different view because of the different water levels in the Gobind Sagar lake.  Image Source - wikimedia  Image Source - (Twitter

Ginger Hotels Review

In last few months, I got chance to stay in few Ginger Hotels, a Tata Enterprise venture. Ginger hotel is a chain of budget hotels but well maintained hotels across India. Today, we can find big demand for budget hotels in India because of sharp increase in stay needs of ever increasing travel community of India. Numbers of travellers in India are constantly increasing because of increase in local tourism and business needs.

Therefore, Tata Group saw lots of potential in budget hotel segment and introduced Ginger hotels. Earlier, Tata group was known for five star and luxury hotels across the world because of long chain of luxury Taj group hotels. Ginger Hotels, a Budget hotel chain, by Tata’s have become very successful because people are getting chance to stay in a good hotel by paying cost of a budget hotel. It is very comfortable to stay in these hotels and we can f

17th century Maa Tarna (Shyamakali) Temple, Mandi (Himachal)

I have visited many ancient and beautiful temples of the Himachal  and found them all unique in their beauty and construction. With changing landscape, we can see changes in the designs of temples. From the ancient wood temple of Shakti Devi in Chamba to Masroor Rock temple in Kangra , all temples in Himachal offer something unique and special. Today, I will talk about the Tarna Mata temple situated in the Mandi city of Himachal Pradesh that is also known as Choti Kashi because of 80 plus temples. The actual name of the temple is Shyamakali Temple and it was built by king Shyam Sen in the 17th century on the hill called Tarna; therefore, this temple has got its name of Tarna Mata from the name of the hill on which it was built.  This temple is also a sign of victory of the Mandi kingdom because Raja Shyam Sen built this temple after winning a battle against the rival king of  Suket Jeet Sen. Raja Shyam Sen of Mandi wished from Maa Kali to grant him a win over the Raja Jeet Sen and in
