Marvels In Stone

The Kalleshwara temple in Bagali, better known as Karnataka's Khajuraho, is truly marvellous, writes B S Narayana Swamy.

A City That Never Sleeps

It wasn't a trip I had planned for shopping. At the end of it, I wished it was. I have always found shopping to be a mundane exercise in indulgence and pointless luxury — an activity women use to bond with each other when they have nothing better to do.

Dandeli Wildlife Sanctuary

This is the second largest wildlife sanctuary in Karnataka, home to some rare animals and birds.

A Different Viewpoint

After a whole day spent wearily seeking out islands of calm in vehicle-choked Udhagamandalam, the photographer and I hit paydirt, courtesy a friend who insists on taking us on a tour of a different Ooty.

Lessons And Leisure

If you believed in such things, then it's Goddess Chamundi who directed us to this place.

Bag It Right!

Frequent travellers will know the importance of carrying a good bag. After all, they are the ones, who through sheer experience, have not had their perfectly arranged suitcases burst open in front of airport staff or seen their sparkling white . . .

Biligiri Rangaswamy Temple Wildlife Sanctuary

The Biligiri Rangaswamy Temple wildlife sanctuary (BRT) is spread over an area of 540 sq.km.

Drop Dead Gorge!

This RLT was getting too perfect to be true. The driver came on time, the forest officials were courteous to a fault and our guide, Mani, was a pro who knew the Nilgiris inside out.

Return Of The Pelican

The increase in the number of pelicans is news to cheer. The nests are close to each other and the adult pelicans jostle with each other.

Where The Bells Ring

The small town of Taliparamba near Kannur is famous for its many temples.

Sign Of The Changing Times?

The Pakistan Government's involvement in the renovation of Hindu temples at Ketas sends out a positive signal.

Paradise, Here And Now

New Zealand is blessed with an infinite variety of landscapes, all of them stunningly beautiful.

A Slice Of Heaven

The Kumaon has haunted me since childhood. I knew little about it except that Jim Corbett hunted and killed man-eating tigers in those distant jungles.

Extraordinary Specimen Of India’s Heritage

The stepwell of Khatijapur in North Karnataka is a fine example of the multifarious, now mostly lost, waterworks of Bijapur, writes Anand J Bariya.

Into The Fascinating Wilderness Of Kruger

K S Yadurajan takes you on a trip to Kruger National Park, the largest game reserve in South Africa.

Monumental Ballads And Echoes Of An Epoch

Chalukya Utsav 2007 will be celebrated from February 18 to 20 at Aihole, Pattadkal and Badami. Manjunath Sullolli reports.

Black Sea Pearl Regains Lustre

Odessa was once as fashionable as Lausanne or Biarritz. The glitterati would take the waters in the summer and mingle on the pristine beaches of the Black Sea.

Meet Bangalore’s Wild Neighbour

Even if you live in a big city like Bangalore, nature is closer than you think. A short drive away is an oasis of peace and beauty.

Temple Town With Charitable Heart

If you’re feeling harassed and life is beginning to get to you, go to Sringeri. At least that’s what one of my friends told me and she was right.

Indian Blue Peafowl

Large birds far more often seen on the ground than in the air, peafowl are unmistakable.

Buy Buy: Foreign Festivals Strike It Rich

Shopping may be fun for the average traveller, but for several countries, it’s serious business, a vital cog in the wheel of tourism.
