    Once Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, the then Prime Minister of India visited Delwara temple. He signed the visitors book blank.
    The times of India wrote the next day that Pandit Nehru had used all of his words to praise Tajmahal (that he visited few days back) and left with no words for this extremely beautiful temple.

    I've always wanted to visit India. In particular, I'd like to see a temple called Dakshineswar, which is where the Indian mystic Sri Ramakrishna lived. I'd also like to see a place called Arunachala. That's where the Advaita master Ramana Maharshi lived and taught.

      Welcome to India. Dakshineshwar is in Kolkata (capital of bengal in eastern India) itself. You can visit  a photo gallery about Parasnath glass temple in Kolkata and Jain dadabadi in my hubs.

      Arunachal is in far east. You can take a flight or train from Kolkata to that place.
      However, do not miss Rajasthan, especially Delwara temple and Jaipur.

      Thanks,
