India is mystical, and it's all about being adventurous and open to knowing the unknown. The land and its vastness is generously blessed with such amazing offerings and architectural marvels alongside historical significance, that each of the treasure toves is having a story of its own. The glimpses of awe inspiring works done centuries and decades ago makes all seem so surreal and a fantasy kinds.  Here's a trip down some of them. 

The Kailasa Temple : The largest of the rock-cut Hindu temples

The Kailasa Temple or Kailashanatha temple, is the largest of the rock-cut Hindu temples at the Ellora Caves, Maharashtra, India. This massive 8th Century Temple in India is carved from One Rock. 

Formed from a single block of excavated stone, Kailasha temple is considered one of the most impressive cave temples in India. The enormous structure is one of 34 cave temples and monasteries that are collectively known as the Ellora Caves. Located in the western region of Maharashtra, the caves are a UNESCO World Heritage Site and include monuments dating between 600 and 1000 CE. While there are many impressive structures on-site, it's the megalithic Kailasha temple that is perhaps the most well known.

 The Araku Valley: Deepest River Valley

Araku Valley is a hill station, 114 km west of Visakhapatnam in Andhra Pradesh and is spread across 36 km.  Nestled in the Ananthagiri Hills, Araku Valley is often referred to as Ooty of Andhra. It is a valley in the Eastern Ghats inhabited by different tribes and is also known for  Borra Caves that are defined as the gem, studded in the crown of Ananthagiri hills of Araku Valley. Unexplored Araku Valley, promises exclusivity and tranquillity. Known for coffee plantations and rich cultural heritage - the interior region of Araku still follows the lifestyle of its ancient tribes, reminiscent of its centuries-old heritage.

Tehri Dam:  Highest Dam in india

The Tehri Dam, located in the state of Uttarakhand is the highest Dam in India with a height of 260.5 metres and is one of the highest in the world, too. The USD 1 billion Tehri Hydroelectric power complex, is owned and operated by the Tehri Hydro Development Corporation, a joint venture of Government of India and the State Government of Uttar Pradesh.  The dam was constructed to provide water for electricity generation, irrigation and drinking water. 

The Tehri Dam has a sediment trap efficiency of 95 per cent and designed to offset 150 years of sedimentation. Watershed management is the principle measure in use for reducing the sediment inflow into the Tehri reservoir. 

A multi-purpose rock and earth-fill embankment dam on the River Bhagirathi, near Tehri in Uttarakhand, India, it is the primary dam of the THDC India Ltd. and the Tehri hydroelectric complex. Phase 1 was completed in 2006. 

Yes, it's all about #hatkegossip on India's architectural and technological headways in harmony with nature. Time to reflect,  rejuvenate and feel blessed with the richness, far off from todays world of artificialness and fakeness. …where technology is majorly being used for more harm than benefit, sadly!
