However, the most beautiful is the city of Jaisalmer, located 575km east of the capital Jaipur, bordering on Pakistan. Why is this place called the “golden city”, because there are unique and meticulous constructions built with yellow sandstone. In addition, Jaisalmer is the heart of India’s largest desert, with immense gold dunes called Thar Desert.

Where people use camels to move
If you have the opportunity to stroll in this interesting city, you will often fall into the situation of giving way to camels on the street. Camels are not only pets to travel in the desert, but also animals to transport people away in the heart of the city.
To serve tourists, some residents decorate their pets with a variety of colorful ropes and sparkling mirrors to let tourists ride and take pictures. Workers use camels to transport goods with the trailer behind. Or most interesting was the sight of police squads patrolling the border on the backs of large, large camels.
The long-legged camels, neck so high that visitors look up must also be wary of a height of more than 3m. However, the camels look fierce but extremely cute and hospitable, so create good feelings for visitors to visit.

The mysterious places in India have not been solved so far

India is a land full of wonders. Many artificial and natural masterpieces that exist in this place always make people wonder, wonder and even fear.

Twin Village – Bang Kodinhi Village – Kerela
India may be one of the lowest twins in the world, but a village in Kerela has challenged this. Kodinhi, a remote area in Malappuram district, looks like an ordinary village at first sight. However, there is something very strange about this place. In fact, there are reports that more than 200 twins appear in this small village. Although doctors believe that the presence of some of the region’s domestic chemicals may lead to such a phenomenon, the actual reason is still unclear.

Music pillar – Vittala Temple, Hampi state – Karnataka
Hampi village boasts many splendid facilities of historical significance, and the outstanding base is clearly the Vittala Temple. The temple exhibits Dravidian architecture and carvings really speak of the architectural glory of the artisans during that time. Another feature that makes this temple one of these types is 56 music pillars. These pillars actually make a sound when typing, but long before the British tried to reveal the mystery by breaking two of the pillars, they could not find anything inside. However, typing them was banned to preserve them: The Riddle Of Music Pillars – Vittala Temple, Hampi State – Karnataka

Andhra Pradesh – Andhra Pradesh
Located in Kurnool district, Yaganti is a famous temple of Lord Shiva, where devotees flock to it in large numbers each year. Interestingly, the Nandi statue placed here has become bigger and bigger throughout the years and this is not a legend. The archaeological survey of India confirmed that the statue increased by 1 inch every 20 years. Another legend about this place is also very believed, that a sage cursed the ravens that could not enter the temple, so no crow would dare come here.

Mysterious fortress – Bang Bhangarh Fort – Rajasthan
Widely known as one of the scariest places, this fortress is located in a secluded area and there are many legends behind the mystical activities experienced here. Thus, the fort adorns beautiful architecture, temples, monuments, gardens, and is open to the public. However, many tourists admitted that a dreadful heavy feeling prevailed in its atmosphere. That explains why the Indian government has installed a ban on Bhangarh Fortress after sunset and before sunrise.

A Day in New Delhi

A new day with the people here usually starts from the deep green natural forests of New Delhi, they walk and exercise, but mostly outdoor yoga.

Yoga is a science that has been born in India for thousands of years, very good for the body and mind of the practitioner because every movement is always associated with breathing in and out. Yoga brings the Indian people health, endurance, endurance to all the harshness of the weather here, when it is hot, burning and cold.


The breakfast of the Indian people is very simple, usually done at home including chapatti (a kind of bread made of charcoal topped with charcoal), adding a cup of fresh milk or a cup of milk tea is decent. Talking about milk cannot help mentioning the success of the white revolution in India, which is raising cows, buffaloes and goats to produce milk to serve the people and even the poorest people in India can also access This nutrition source. Along the streets stretching across Delhi, in the morning, we often meet men pushing cars full of vegetables and fruits to peddling across the city, they dress up a kind of pants like a women’s dress, welcome It is in Hindi, but it is still possible to communicate more or less in English if you meet foreign guests. In India, there is a tradition that the man in the family must be the pillar, working from dream to sunset to earn a living, and women only stay at home to take care of their children, take them to school, then is cleaning the house, even educated women still have to stay at home as a predestined destiny of a thousand-year-old culture on every hardship of the men here.

The Indian office must be at 9:30 am to 10:00 am to start and end the lunch break at 13:00. In the afternoon, at the end of the hour, the New Delhi capital is filled with people and people because of traffic congestion, but the main culprits are cars, followed by lamas (scooters) and motorcycles. When the night was tinged with Delhi, we could see the magnificent beauty of the world-class 5-star hotels here. The luxury hotel in Delhi is often built on a large area of ​​land that looks cool and green nature can spread the charm and charm to the most demanding guests.

In contrast to the mysterious, magnificent looks of the hotels or luxurious buildings in a mystical way, one can see slum houses in the suburb of Delhi, shabby and lonely. It was the home of the homeless people, who were living below the poverty line, but according to the United Nations calculation, there was no $ 2 / day equivalent to more than Rs 100 (Indian money). The temporary tents here are set up by several trees, covered with packaging, plastic, canvas … They live through the day thanks to work for any common job, carrying bags, cleaning, washing bowl of chopsticks … but in them, they show a pride and kindness that they never cut down the forest to sell for money, can they only pick up the dried branches of the dry season to make firewood to cook the so-called meal or fuel for heating in cold winter days sometimes goes down a few degrees Celsius. The consciousness of the people in protecting the environment in India is admirable, even though the meal is still not round. in accordance with the concept but it seems that the forests in Delhi are still green with a proud green color, the beauty of life lasts throughout the dry season and the rainy season.
