This little bridge in the hamlet of Jog, separates two beautiful districts of #Shivamogga and #karwar . This is what makes Karnataka so captivatingly beautiful.. the greenery and the monsoon! Even our fellow creatures seem to be enjoying chilling on the bridge, 😍
Tag one person you would LOVE to take here this season! 🤩
Today was a rough day. Am a heritage lover and spiritual too. And a holy site where I felt so elated has been vandalised. It is heartbreaking to see the pictures.
Nava Vrindavan or Nava Brindavanam is a place where Madhvacharaya and his disciples attained Jeeva Samadhi over a period of time. Jeeva samadhi is to dedicate yourself to God, so the sage would sit in a pit and voluntarily let his disciples bury him. You are buried when you are alive which means the soul reaches God but the body is still here meditating. Nava Vrindavan also includes disciples of Sri Raghevendra swami. It is quite a wander to think, how over the years one after the other goes to the same island and attains moksha. It is on an island in river Tungabadra and you need to take a boat to reach here. Vrindavan is a revered holy site and many Hindus come here to do Pooja and pray. While at Hampi it so happened that my cab driver mentioned the place. I had read so much about it but I didn't know it was right here at Anegudi. It was a hot afternoon when we took a boat crossed the river and offered prayers here. And I was elated and so high and felt extremely lucky to be there.
But today it has been destroyed! Something that existed for hundreds of years and a holy site has been vandalised. They have dug out the samadhis. How cruel is this. My heart breaks to see something so special has been destroyed. Why did they have to do this! How do they have the heart to destroy a heritage and pilgrimage site..

Ever wondered how much time and effort it must have taken to build forts of massive scale?! I personally get mesmerized by these gigantic forts everytime, because these were built hundreds of years back and still stand tall gloriously. For the architects who designed these forts, they were supposed to be house of the royals. Little did they know that these would some day become tourist spots for curious souls like me gazing at the mightly old walls and windows and archways and halls; and wondering how the king back then would have used them🤷♂😇
India’s Mega Kitchen- Dharmasthala Temple’s Annapoorna Kitchen can cater to more than 100,000 pilgrims per day- it’s self sufficient, it’s massive, and it’s got minimal wastage.
It’s location makes it less accessible, but the Nat Geo documentary will show you everything you want to know!
Launched in 2004, Orkut was Google's first venture into social media. To the surprise of many, Orkut flourished in the Indian and Brazilian markets as the most popular social media site. It was only after 2009, that Facebook began to garner the kind of fame that Orkut had laid claim to in India. Brazil finally let go of it's hold on Orkut by 2012, allowing Facebook to take over the fort it held for the most part of a decade. Google bid farewell to Orkut in 2014, stating that the growth of Youtube, Google+ and Blogger had surpassed that of Orkut, bringing the need to focus its resources on those enterprises.
