Mumbai's Super Coastal Road

http://amzn.to/2Fs0pZx - (affliate) Mumbai’s ambitious Coastal Road project—connecting South Bombay to the suburbs—is finally going to start in April, 2018 and be ready for use to the financial capital four years later. Here are the key takeaways about the Coastal Road project: - The Coastal Road will be 29.2-km long road and have as many as eight lanes. It will also have two dedicated bus lanes. - The 15,000-crore road project will also build a tunnel in between Girgaum Chowpatty and Priyadarshini Park, through Malabar Hill. From the Park it will run along the coast and connect to Bandra-Worli sea-link. - An underpass will be built for Haji Ali. Traffic coming from Tardeo will be directed towards BWSL. - The first and south phase of the project will establish a link between Princess Street flyover and south end of Bandra-Worli Sea link. Following the completion of this some trouble may arise as Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation (MSRDC) has asked BMC to buy the sea-link flyover at a high price for incorporating it into the project. - The final and north phase of the project will run from the north-end of the Bandra-Worli sea-link to Kandivali. Its construction will start after the first phase is over. - The project will need reclamation of 186-hectare land from which 91 hectares will have to be created as green spaces. There will also be elevated roads and flyovers.

North West India: Rajasthan part 2 (Jaisalmer, Jodhpur, Kumbalgarth and Pushkar (fair)

Part 2: North India, a videoreport of our journey through Rajasthan. The most colourful state of India. Jaisalmer: The walled city as a whole is a landmark with its many beautifully carved facades, narrow, winding streets and intimate bazaars. The fort is one of the oldest and largest of Rajasthan. Moreover, it is inhabited, what a journey through this medieval neighborhood is an experience like in a thousand and one nights. Six kilometers north of the city lie the cenotaphs, monuments of the cremation of the maharajas.Mandawa. It is a very nice town. Time seems to have stopped here. In the Thar desert we visit a little village and meet a old musician who play two flutes simultaneous. Jodhpur, also known as the "blue city". From the fort, you can clearly see why Jodhpur has been nicknamed the 'blue city', many houses are painted blue. The color blue actually means that the house is owned by a Brahmin; a person of a higher 'caste', or class. Nowadays everyone in Jodhpur may paint his house blue. The color blue would repel insects. Kumbhalgarh Fort is a Mewar fortress on the westerly range of Aravalli Hills. Less known and visited then other fortresses in Rajasthan but very interesting. It is a World Heritage Site included in Hill Forts of Rajasthan. Built during the course of the 15th century by Rana Kumbha and enlarged through the 19th century. In the environment of Kumbhalgarh we visit a small rural village; a unique opportunity to meet locals and smoke "the pipe" with them. We end this part of our video report in Pushkar. What to say about Pushkar. Each year in the month of Karthik, a spectacular 10-day fair called the "Pushkar Fair" is organized in the desert town of Pushkar. During this time huge numbers of camels, horses, cows, goats and sheep collect here and then are then traded by their owners. With the sudden appearance of these hundreds of men, women and animals in the otherwise quiet town of Pushkar, the desert seems to come alive and becomes filled with colour, music, laughter and enjoyment. Men can be seen wearing their vibrant traditional turbans that are an integral part of their attire and the women are equally decked up from head to toe in their multi-coloured lehengas with glittering bangles, necklaces, silver waistbands, anklets, and flamboyant chunnis.

India/Aurangabad/Ajanta Caves Part 50

Welcome to my travelchannel.On my channel you can find almost 1000 films of more than 70 countries. See the playlist on my youtube channel.Enjoy! https://www.youtube.com/user/nurettinodunya/playlists Ajanta Caves/Aurangabad: The Ajanta Caves in Aurangabad district of Maharashtra state of India are about 30 rock-cut Buddhist cave monuments which date from the 2nd century BCE to about 480 or 650 CE.The caves include paintings and sculptures described by the government Archaeological Survey of India as "the finest surviving examples of Indian art, particularly painting", which are masterpieces of Buddhist religious art, with figures of the Buddha and depictions of the Jataka tales. The caves were built in two phases starting around the 2nd century BCE, with the second group of caves built around 400–650 CE according to older accounts, or all in a brief period of 460 to 480 according to the recent proposals of Walter M. Spink. The site is a protected monument in the care of the Archaeological Survey of India, and since 1983, the Ajanta Caves have been a UNESCO World Heritage Site. With the Ellora Caves, Ajanta is the major tourist attraction of the Marathwada region of Maharashtra. About 59 kilometres (37 miles) from Jalgaon railway station on the Delhi – Mumbai line and Howrah-Nagpur-Mumbai line of the Central Railway zone, and 104 kilometres (65 miles) from the city of Aurangabad. They are 100 kilometres (62 miles) from the Ellora Caves, which contain Hindu and Jain temples as well as Buddhist caves, the last dating from a period similar to Ajanta. The Ajanta caves are cut into the side of a cliff that is on the south side of a U-shaped gorge on the small river Waghur, and although they are now along and above a modern pathway running across the cliff they were originally reached by individual stairs or ladders from the side of the river 10–35 m (30–110 ft) below. The area was previously heavily forested, and after the site ceased to be used the caves were covered by jungle until accidentally rediscovered in 1819 by a British officer on a hunting party. They are Buddhist monastic buildings, apparently representing a number of distinct "monasteries" or colleges. The caves are numbered 1 to 28 according to their place along the path, beginning at the entrance. Several are unfinished and some barely begun and others are small shrines, included in the traditional numbering as e.g. "9A"; "Cave 15A" was still hidden under rubble when the numbering was done. Further round the gorge are a number of waterfalls, which when the river is high are audible from outside the caves. The caves form the largest corpus of early Indian wall-painting; other survivals from the area of modern India are very few, though they are related to 5th-century paintings at Sigiriya in Sri Lanka.The elaborate architectural carving in many caves is also very rare, and the style of the many figure sculptures is highly local, found only at a few nearby contemporary sites, although the Ajanta tradition can be related to the later Hindu Ellora Caves and other sites.Wikipedia

Konark Sun Temple is dedicated to the Hindu god Surya, what remains of the temple complex has the appearance of a 100-foot high chariot with immense wheels and horses, all carved from stone. Once over 200 feet high, much of the temple is now in ruins, in particular the large shikara tower over the sanctuary; at one time this rose much higher than the mandapa that remains. (Wikipedia)
