I started exploring India in 2012. In those times, terms like solo travel and backpacking were not thrown around like peanuts. Travelling in India was very different back then. In the last 9 years, the concept of travelling has evolved and a lot of places have become popular. This video is a short glimpse about my travels around India where I explored its many terrains, tasted every type of food, and attended many festivals.
Rajgir is the first capital of Magadha Kingdom and was known as Rajagriha. This small village close to Bihar and Jharkhand’s border is now a highly revered site being important to the followers of Buddhism, Hinduism and Jainism.
Due to Losar, Bodh Gaya was filled with Buddhist Monks and followers who had assembled here from different countries. You would see large groups of Monks wearing their traditional clothes mediating in different complex of the temple.
Sonepur Mela is one of the most popular fairs in India. Apart from being the biggest Cattle fair in Asia, its sheer grandness surpasses famous festivals like Pushkar fair.
From the building to the galleries, Bihar Museum, Patna presents a display of unique culture of Bihar to the visitors. As one of the best places to visit in Patna, this museum is a perfect day trip in Patna.
Bodh Gaya felt like a place that was out of the world. A multi-cultural destination, where you’ll find visitors from every country in the world, especially those who follow Buddhism.
