Varanasi also Benares, Banaras or Kashi, is a city on the banks of the Ganges (Ganga) in Uttar Pradesh, 320 kilometres southeast of the state capital, Lucknow. It is holiest of the seven sacred cities (SaptaPuri) in Hinduism and Jainism. It is one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world and the oldest in India.
The name Vārāņasi possibly originates from the names of the two rivers: Varuna, still flowing in Varanasi, and Asi, a small stream near AssiGhat. Its sights, sounds, colors absorb everyone in its endlessly fascinating spectacle of ritual activity.
Please enjoy this bit of cross-Canada travel fun and history. I became quite familiar with airport codes in one of my former careers and although the days of true airline "milk runs" were gone, I think my record was five flights (yes, that's five takeoffs and five landings) in one day.
Canada is a huge country with so many great places to visit (or live)!
This map/illustration will take you to all the exciting places & curious experiences of Mumbai, like wading through the crowds for the local train, VadaPav stalls (street food), Victoria Chariot rides with the "Taj"as the backdrop, cycling escapades to south Mumbai-admiring the Victorian architecture around, sunset at marine drive after a heavy unlimited salad meal at Candies. Going to Liberty theater just to see the "Art Deco" interiors instead of a film. Ogling at our favorite band at blue frog, but the best memory was watching the mono rail test runs from our house balcony, topping it with a house party. Mumbai is truly the city that throbs with mayhem & pulsates with energy.
A map illustrating “the mysterious Auroville”, with its curious sights & unique architecture, unlike any other place in India. Sights- The Matri Mandir (temple) blazing like the summer sun with its gleaming energy falling upon the distant mediators under the great banyan tree. The offbeat path from the youth centre, surrounded by fallen cyclone trees leading to the raw tree houses with the hippie love car road divider. Curious architecture- space ship Auro Model houses, Roger Anger's abandoned school, the art school. Memories- fish pedicure at Verite, Sleeping at the open roofed hut at Reve under the stars & constantly loosing my way along the winding mud roads at night.
My Illustrative map is based on "The City of Joy- Kolkata". This historic city is famous for its colonial architecture, culture, food and its spirit. There is so much to see and explore! And I am fortunate to call Kolkata/Calcuttta my home.
Immediately after moving from Munich to DC I fell in love with the city! Even after 5 years living here Washington is still my favorite city in the world! I love it so much that I've I've created this DC LOVE MAP, which is based on my original pencil illustrations.
