Jhansi Rani Lakshmibai

Lakshmi Bai, the Queen of Jhansi (19 November 1827 – 17 June 1858), known as Jhansi Ki Rani, or the queen of Jhansi, was one of the leading figures of the Indian Rebellion of 1857, and a symbol of resistance to British rule in India. She was the queen of the Maratha-ruled princely state of Jhansi, situated in the northern part of India.

The picture here is claimed to be the only original picture of Jhansi Rani Lakshmibai available in the world and was clicked in 1850 by the British photographer Hoffman.

Raja Vir SinghJi Deo in Jhansi built this fort in the 17th century. The legendary Rani of Jhansi, Laxmi Bai, used the fort originally made on a rocky hillock, as her residence. She fought against the British from this very fort. Today, it houses a collection of sculptures and provides an excellent insight into the event full history of Bundelkhand.

  3. Known for centuries as a mysterious & an ancient land – Tibet, retains many elements of its past.
    With Ancient Buddhist Culture, awesome landscapes, artistic monasteries and
    centuries old caravan trails Tibet is a destination
    out of the ordinary. Well known, as “Roof of the World” is continuously a Mysterious place, which travellers yearn to visit,
    and an exploratory paradise which people long for day & night.
    In their eyes, the highest snow lend on the earth is not only the most charming virgin land but
    also the last fastness, which is full of romantic and mysterious color in the world.

    Tibet is a lost land uncontaminated by civilization. The Snow capped Mt.
    Everest, the magnificent Potala Palace, Holy Mt.

    Kailash & Lake Mansarovar have attracted tourists
    from all over the world.
    Due to Geographical situation & Political conditions
    it was difficult for pilgrims after hard efforts of Mr.
    Jaysinh Thakker the leading trekking & expedition Consultant
    & Managing Director of Indo Nepal Holidays Pvt.
    Ltd. Chairman of Asva Group of Enterprises after 1992 become easier & now
    in 2012 become more comfortable Tour & easily accessible Destination not only for pilgrims
    but even for trek & adventure lovers.
    Centuries of pilgrim path across Asia have converged on a remote corner of South Western Tibet, where a compellingly symmetrical peak rises from the bare plains.
    Its name is “Mount Kailash”. The power of
    this strange, domed peak has gripped the imaginations of the Hindus, Jains,
    and Buddhists & Bonpos since time immemorial. This 6714 meter rock
    pyramid is the abode of the Gods & earthly manifestation of the “Pillar of the Universe”,
    the Mythical Mount Meru.
    Striking in the way it rises high above the surrounding range and always remains snow capped, thus Mt.
    Kailash is known as “Kang Rinpoche”, which means ‘Jewel of Snow’.
    Traditional Buddhist cosmology describes Mt.
    Kailash as “Mount Meru”, the great mythological mountain that forms axis of
    this world system.
    Just 26 Km. South of Mount Kailash, across the great
    plain of Barga at the base of majestic Mt.
    Gurla Mandhata lies a holy lake called “Mansarovar”
    which enjoys the same reputation as the holy Mount Kailash.
    4490 meter above sea level with about 412 square Kilometers area and about 70 meters deep Holy Lake Mansarovar is also
    called “Mother of the Worlds rivers”.
    Mansarovar is considered by Buddhists & Hindus to be more worthy of veneration.
    Buddhists believe that Queen Maya, the mother of Buddha, was carried here by the
    Gods and washed prior to given birth to the Buddha.

    The sacred lake is like sapphire glittering with charming colors in the
    sunshine. It is so clear that fish 10 meters below surface can be seen.

    Through its everlasting enchantment, washes away the sorrow of all mortal being
    through out the ages.

  10. Rani Laxmibai died but paradoxically she yet still continues to live. Like a red thread that runs through history she cannot be destroyed. She will surface again and bear progenies that indeed will change the world. Only time will tell and prove that there are some who are born for greater things than meet the human eye!
