Udaipur – Les Pamynouches au Gujarat. Ça y est!

Udaipur – Les Pamynouches au Gujarat

On est enfin arrivés à Udaipur après une aventure digne d’Indiana Jones! Notre avion bru-fra avait du retard mais, surprise, un bus attendait les 5 passagers pour Dehli à leur descente d’avion à Francfort et on est finalement arrivés les premiers dans le superbe A380-800: A l’arrivée à Dehli, files interminables au contrôle des passeports, puis attente tout aussi interminable aux bagages. On apprend que notre vol suivant part d’un autre terminal. My Favourite Things.

My Favourite Things

The legends and temples of Ambaji. Ambaji is a temple town located in the Aravalli ranges of North Gujarat, just 10-15 km from the Rajasthan State border.

The legends and temples of Ambaji

The town gets its name from the Arasuri Ambaji Mata Temple or the Ambaji Temple, one of the 51 (or 52 or 64, depending on which list you follow) Shakti Peeths located in the sub-continent. The name ‘Arasur’ itself is derived from ‘aaras’, the local name for marble which is available in plenty. In fact, the ancient name for Ambaji was Arasan Nagar. When I first put together a plan to visit North Gujarat in December 2014, Ambaji didn’t figure in the list. Images of Kumbharia Jain Temples Pictures Gallery–Ambaji Attractions Photos.

Journaliste spécialiste de l’Inde, dévoreuse de livres pour petits et grands et de kilomètres de routes poussiéreuses, je travaille actuellement à un projet de livre pour enfants sur l’Inde, qui est la raison d’être du voyage que je raconte sur ce blog.

Sur les pas de Prakash

Ce voyage a eu lieu en octobre-novembre 2014. Mon projet de livre a été sélectionné dans le cadre de la Villa Marco Polo, une résidence pour accompagner les « grands voyageurs de demain ». Lors d’un passage à Rameshwaram, en Inde du Sud, en 2009 J’ai déjà consacré des blogs à d’autres voyages : Head to Hazrat Nizamuddin Dargah for Best Qawwalis in Delhi.

Votive Horses of Poshina – An Anthropological Journey. 4,000 years ago, when the Aryans came to India from Central Asia in search of livelihood, they brought one unique animal to the region, hitherto unknown in South Asia. It was horse, an animal that became a key item of trade from then on in Indian history. As the Aryans were spread waves after waves in the fertile Ganga Valley, the region witnessed a series of major historical events, beginning with the clearance of forest, introduction of iron technology, establishment of varna order and ashrams for Hindus, foundation of two major religions, Buddhism and Jainism and the emergence of a network of cities, trade routes and small and large states, all in a span of 1,000 years.

Bhuj et le Grand Rann

Amazing places in India: Day 83 - Kutch. Kutch is a district located in the north-west of Gujarat. A major part of this district in Gujarat is referred to as Rann of Kutch, a shallow wetland submerging in water during the rainy season and becomes dry during other seasons. The Rann is popularly known for its marshy salt flats, which turns into snow white after the swallow water dries up each season before the monsoon rains. The word Kutch or Kachchh, means tortoise in Sanskrit, and interestingly the shape of the region is rather like a tortoise. The word also means something that becomes alternately wet and dry, and it is true that the Rann of Kutch becomes submerged under water during the rains. Kutch is the second-largest district in India after Leh. How to reach here: Carnet de voyage hyper précis d'un cycliste.

Gujarat's most important city has about 4.5 million people and straddles the wide Sabarmati River. The very atmospheric old city lies east of the river. The traffic- and vendor-packed Mahatma Gandhi (MG) Road runs through the middle of the old city, connecting Ellis Bridge with the main train station Ahmedabad Junction on the east edge of city; this road was Ahmedabad's first, and became so congested that Relief Road was built parallel to the north to provide relief for traffic; it connects Nehru Bridge with the main train station.

Historic mosques, tombs, temples, and houses fill the narrow lanes of the old city. The old houses have finely carved woodwork along with stone work that makes them resistant to earthquakes. Ahmed Shah founded the city in 1411 and its grandeur peaked in the 17th century. Polo Monument Vijaynagar et Polo Forest. The Ahmedabad Blog - Part 3.

Food:- Simple home menu gujarati vegetarian food only. Huchchara Santhe: Rann Diaries - Day 2. Gujarat Diaries so far... After a mixed hectic first day, next morning was a quick starter with the jeep all set and Pratap bhai coming on time. Chestnut-bellied Sandgrouses were the toast for the morning, they are so beautifully camouflaged that its very difficult to spot them in the Rann and if you have seen one or two, you would have missed a dozen that would be right next to you and as you approach them closer, they all fly away in unison with a ‘phurrrr’...

After the patient session with the sandgrouses, then came the herd of wild asses and I was next busy occupied seeing and shooting various water birds, from flamingos to pelicans, to shovelers to gulls. As Pratap bhai had to leave early, I called it a day for the session as going around without a person who knows the place is like searching a needle in a haystack... very difficult, every location looks the same and an untrained eye can never see anything unless its closer and in your view.

Cet état de l’ouest de l’Inde, au sud du Rajastan, frontalier du Pakistan, riche économiquement en raison de ses industries d’exportation et des conditions hydrographiques pour les parties correspondant aux fleuves et au littoral n’est pas très touristique. Les raisons invoquées, manque de concentration de sites (erreur), un passé tourmenté par les affrontements inter-ethniques (en 2002, les massacres de Musulmans avaient fait le vide) et autre réalité, les interdits : le végétarisme strict et l’interdiction de l’alcool n’incitent guère les européens amateurs de bière. Seuls quelques anglais en autonomes, encore nostalgiques de l’Empire, circulent en voiture avec chauffeur.
