Ujjain Temple

Posted on Mon, 08/22/2011 - 23:47 by villson
 

The earliest references to the city, as Ujjaini, are from the time of the Buddha, when it was the capital of the Avanti Kingdom. Since the 4th century B.C. the city has marked the first meridian of longitude in Hindu geography. It is also reputed to have been the residence of Ashoka (who subsequently became the emperor), when he was the viceroy of the western provinces of the Mauryan empire.
 


Inspiring India

Posted on Tue, 07/19/2011 - 10:34 by cariat
 

.... I was in India four decades ago and traveled by air from Burma to Calcutta, by train to Patna, air to Kathmandu and back, train onto Benares, Delhi, Agra,(Taj Mahal by Full Moonlight!)  Jaipur, Udaipur and Bombay...and then boarded a ship to Port Said, Egypt. Three weeks in an  AMAZING land - part of a sixteen-month trip around the world!
Poverty is excruciating, culture overflowing with richness, spirituality on multiple levels from various concepts of a Single Source, embues their daily life. The color, scents, tradition, etc. all create an  enormous kaleidoscope of Life. The country is huge, its population more so....the mountains are  high and glorious, the plains vast and flat as a piece of paper: from browns to greens to muddy waters and lazy beasts roaming it all. The emotional space in which these people need to keep themselves just to get through a day must be almost holy to endure what the majority of them do. If you can, see "City of Joy" with Patrick Swayze....India without the smells.....!


Photo Website of My Trip to India with Easy Tours in 2009

Posted on Sat, 11/27/2010 - 23:56 by Sharon Hallgrimson
 

Rather than download numerous pictures, I'm inviting Easy Tour alumni and potential travelers to view an extensive photo web-site that I constructed when I returned from India in 2009.  To enter the web-site, go to http://imagesofindia2009.shutterfly.com/, and input sharon as the password to enter the site.  I included commentary, and I encourage visitors to look at all the categories detailed at the top of the site.  There are many additional categories under the tab "Other" as well.

I hope you enjoy viewing the photo slide-shows as much as I enjoyed putting this memory together.  An incredible trip that was possible with the expertise of Easy Tours of India.
