It’s always nice to take a break and come back to my space to relive my pleasant experiences and as I keep writing and expressing myself, there is joy and gratitude for everything that has gone by and it only makes me thank God for every opportunity and experience.
This year truly as I declared for myself is a year of exploration and so far I am glad for the last six months for so many experiences of visiting new places, makes small changes in my thinking patterns, life style and also gave a new look to my house with making the required changes. I have still so much to share about my North east trip and today I want to share about my visit to Guwahti.
Guwahti, as rightly called is the gate way to the North east. If you want to travel around north east, we have to go via Guwahti. So we travelled by road from Guwahti to Meghalaya and enjoyed visiting all the places in this state by road and came back to Guwahti. We spent one day in Guwahti and visited few places within the limited time that we had.
Guwahti is very popular for the temples and I visited two very famous temples, one is the kamakya temple which is built Kamakhya Temple is pre Aryan situated atop the Nilachal Hill. The foremost shrine of Assam, it right on the top of a hill and we can the whole city of Guwahti from here.We also visited the Umananda temple which is in the middle of the Brahmaputra River. We need to take a boat ride to this place, which is supposed to be the smallest riverine island in the world. It was interesting to see this place which had very few in habitants; there were shops and lot of greenery.
I took opportunity to visit one my very old colleague, with whom I have worked for 13 years and now she is settled in this place. It was a pleasure to spent time with her and relive beautiful memories, had lunch with her and stayed on till evening hours and returned back to the hotel. I felt so energized and happy for having met my friend and also for going around this city, travelled by rickshaw after so many years.
Memories are the timeless treasure of the heart J
