-Mukteshwar Mahadev Temple, District Pathankot, Punjab.
Further on my journey to explore various wonder of nature, I visited this place near my hometown Pathankot. It is Mukteshwar Mahadev Temple.
These are 5500-year-old caves & a temple built by Pandavas. According to the Hindu Mythology, these caves are as old as the Mahabharata. It was built by pandavas during their exile, as according to a legend states in the mythology, these caves served as home to the pandavas as they rested and took shelter over here during their exile. It was during their ‘Agayatwas’ that they stayed in these caves for six months.
Pandvas stayed here for six months, in that time period they built four caves and a shiv temple. They crafted the Shivlingam present in the temple and worshiped the lord shiva here. The Havan Kund made by them, is still present there in temple.
This place is also known as mini (small) haridwar. Those people who can not do ash immersion of their kin at haridwar, they flow it in Ravi River at Mukteshwar Mahadev Temple.
In my journey to explore new worlds, I travelled German state of Bavaria the fall of 2017. It was a part of my class curriculum that I got chance to visit THI Ingolstadt. I must say it was a different world for me. I used to hear stories of beauty of Germany from my friends but never imagined the extent of it.
-Ringlerstraße 17, Ingolstadt
Most of my visits with the group were to local companies there with a purpose to learn from their wonderful methods to manufacture products that rule the world. I got chance to visit BMW Welt Munich, Audi Museum Ingolstadt, Continental Ingolstadt and many other world famous companies. By the way I clicked the above picture on the street outside Continental.
Nature mesmerized me at every step here. It was sunshine in the morning, rain in the afternoon and snow in the night. Well I must admit i was kind of unprepared for such weather.
On the last day of my visit I went to Deutsches Museum Flugwerft Schleissheim in Munich and fell in love with it. I got lost here which is by far one of the best places i visited in my life (Not to mention, I am a Mechanical engineer and my passion is Aerospace). I kept on reading the display charts one after the other for 5 hours till I realized I have to go back as had a plan to meet someone in the evening.
Well I would say if this is what is called making first impression count, Bavaria you were spot on. I will return pretty soon ‘PROST’.
