Kaziranga National Park, Assam

 

On the flood plains of  the mighty Brahmaputra River, its the home of endangered species like one horned rhinoceros in India. This sanctuary hosts two third of world’s one horned rhinoceros. This is also a tiger reserve, having highest density of tigers in a protected area. The park also hasd large numbers of elephants, wild water buffalo, swamp deer, sambar (cervus unicolor) etc. Birdlife international has identified the park as important bird area as the park hosts a wide range of migratory birds, water birds, predators etc. Will be adding few more shots, as it  was a very short trip there, hoping to headover there again soon.

Photo Album: Golconda Fort

Built during the Kakatiya dynasty(1163–1323), Golconda or Golkonda fort(located 11 km west of Hyderabad,Telangana, India) is one of the major tourist attraction in Hyderabad. The area is well known for the mines producing some of the world’s most famous gems, like the Kohinoor. The Golkonda Fort complex & its encompassing spreads across 11 km of total area divided by four district forts, and discovering its every recess is a tiring effort.Visiting the fort affirms the architectural artistry in many of the structure, gates, entrances and domes. Will be adding more images of the fort which witnessed several rulars and battles  over a period of more than 800 years..
