So, what did you do for the weekend? While there’s a long to do list lying somewhere by my bedside, and a lot of packing for this week’s Gujarat trip, I chose not to do anything. Except for some photos of course, which is more like a hobby rather than work. With a clear, sunny, blue sky that made for a perfect background, I got some good ones and some not so good ones. This is what you have for a 360 degree view from my house’s terrace. Haridwar once again.

Chandi Devi temple Haridwar

That, right on the top of that hill, is the much revered Chandi Devi temple. A 1.5 hour hike or a ropeway are your way to it.
