It’s been two years from now I went to Gangtok, the capital of the northern Indian state of Sikkim. Gangtok is a tourist attraction, not only for snow but for flowers also. So, I say it is the Paradise of tourists. I visited there 3/4 times. Sometimes to see flowers, sometimes snow. It was mid-March, I went with my family.
On my visit, with other places, I went to Rumtek Monastery there. It’s also called Dharmachakra Center, a place of erudition and spiritual accomplishment, the seat of the glorious Karmapa. Rumtek Monastery is now the largest in Sikkim. It is the home to the community of the monks and here they perform the rituals and practices of the KARMA KAGYU lineage. A golden stupa contains the relics of the 16th Karmapa. Here I saw these orchids and clicked.
JAWAHARLAL NEHRU BOTANICAL GARDENS
Near Rumtek, another nice place is Jawaharlal Nehru Botanical Gardens. It houses many species of orchids, trees, including oaks. But, don’t know why we feel it is not well maintained. Whatever, let’s explore:
At the time of coming back, told a tourist to take a shot of us. I wanted to keep the picture as the memory of Sikkim. Here it is. But, sorry to say, I didn’t ask her name.
This is my first photography post. Except the last family photo, all are clicked by me only. Please let me know how are they. I love to get your feedback always.
Thanks for reading.
