往事的低语 Whispers of the past
Hemakuta Hill, Hampi, India
Hampi is a UNESCO World Heritage Site in Karnataka, India. The group of monuments—ancient temples, majestic palaces, and intricate ruins—are remnants of the former capital city of the Vijayanagara Empire, which ruled much of South India between the 14th and 16th centuries.
The city grew during the reign of King Krishnadevaraya, from 1509 to 1529, and was famed for its art and architecture, attracting visitors from all over the world. However, Hampi lost its Midas touch in 1565, when it was destroyed after the defeat of its army at the Battle of Talikota.
Today, Hampi still houses about 1,000 ancient monuments and has become popular with modern backpackers, giving the lost city a new life. One of the most visited parts is Hemakuta Hill, with its well-preserved temples and shrines. While exploring the hill, visitors can stop by to offer prayers at the Virupaksha Temple, a pilgrimage site dedicated to Lord Shiva.

Mount Abu, Rajasthan, India
Providing much-needed relief from the blazing heat of Rajasthan, Mount Abu, the state’s only hill station, stands at a height of 1,722 meters above sea level and is embraced by the lush green hills of the Aravalli Range. It is referred to as 'an oasis in the desert as its heights are home to rivers, lakes, waterfalls, and evergreen forests.
Studded with a colorful mix of rustic abodes of tribal communities and posh houses inclusive of British-style bungalows and royal holiday lodges, Mount Abu appears to be no less than a wonder in this desert state. Other than its scenic beauty, the place is home to several Hindu and Jain temples, including Arbuda Devi Temple, Shri Raghunath Temple, Dilwara Temple, and more.

椰林国 Coconut forest country
Kerala, the southernmost state of India, is the spice hotspot of the world since ancient times. This beautiful land is rightly called God's Own Country, given to its lush green landscapes and crystal-clear beaches that will leave you awestruck. With all elements of nature in it, Kerala leads the country in various aspects like literacy rate, sex ratio, least population growth, and travel and tourism.
The name Kerala is derived from Kera, the local Malayalam word for coconut, and there is an abundance of palm trees across the state. The spiky dark green fronds act as natural parasols against the glare of the sun. The coconut doesn’t just lend its name to the place but also acts as a ubiquitous and adaptable natural resource from which countless products, such as coir, a versatile fiber, and toddy, a famous – and potent – local brew, are derived.
