“The sky is calling” 🌆 and we’d be happy to answer the call as we simply love this stunner! Rotterdam is world famous for its modern architecture which you can find anywhere within the city. It is thus home to many design museums and leading architectural firms which are all involved in the design of famous buildings and bridges in major cities around the globe. Stunning! 🙌

Padmasambhava also known as Guru Rinpoche, was an 8th-century Indian Buddhist master. A number of legends have grown around Padmasambhava's life and deeds, and he is widely venerated as a 'second Buddha' across Tibet, Nepal, Bhutan, and the Himalayan states of India. His legends carry universal relevance about triumph over obstacles, the power of human emotions, transformation and impermanence.

Wet and mystical day at Miyajima. The rains kept the crowds away and allowed us to get amazing photos of the shrine and torri gate.

Sometimes you have to have a little dance when you realise you’re 2 dress sizes down from last years holiday.

Storm laden heavy clouds over Nakhoda masjid.
The main mosque of Kolkata, the capital of West Bengal is the Nakhoda Mosque located in the centre of the city in the commercial district of Burra Bazaar. It is a landmark of central Kolkata built on the Rabindra Sarani – Zakaria Street Crossing.
The Nakhoda Mosque was built by Abdul Rahim Osman, a rich shipping  merchant who belonged to the Memon sect of the Sunni Muslims from Kutch region of Gujarat. The name Nakhoda means ‘Seafarer ‘ or Mariner in Arabic. The construction of the mosque was started with a foundation stone being laid in September 1926.  The total expense incurred by Abdul Rahim Osman for the completion of the building was Rs. 15 lakhs or 1.5 million.
The Nakhoda Masjid has a huge central prayer hall that can hold 10000 faithfuls. There are three domes over the hall flanked by two minarets that are 151 ft. tall. The periphery is covered by smaller minarets that are 15 in number of varying heights between 100 and 117 ft.
Inside the mosque is covered with artistic carving and decorated extensively on columns and pillars and the inside of the domes.
The Nakhoda Mosque is the chief seat of Sunni Muslim sect in Kolkata and is the largest mosque in West Bengal. Located in the busy commercial district of Central Kolkata, the mosque is a landmark in the area. Scores of shops line the road outside the mosque selling a variety of things including ittar which is an essence of flowers and other aromatic compounds.

During Muslim festivals, the whole area is lit up in bright lights and there is a festive mood that is palpable.  Street vendors sell biryani and other traditional sweet-meats.
