Chunar is a beautiful place where religion, history, and nature intermingle with each other. This is an ancient town situated in the Vindhya Range on the banks of the Holy River Ganga and is full of many stories regarding its emergence. According to the scriptures, it was earlier known as “Charandari” because Lord Vishnu took his first step here during his Vaman incarnation in Satyug period. The history of Chunar also reveals that a very powerful man travelled from Himalaya to Kanyakumari in the age of Dwapar and rested on a rock on his journey. The rock which bears the impression of this Mythological man, developed later to become today's Chunar. The third story tells about Bhatrihari who was the philosopher ruler of Ujjain and came here for penance. Another story sheds lights upon the idol of Naina Yogini built by King Sahadev who named the place as Nainagarh. It is however said that Chunar came into highlights after the visit of Babar followed by other Mughals successor and later the Britishers.

Quite impressed by Lucknow as a city - great roads, a charming historical feel, some green pockets. Tempted to travel around UP!
I decided to visit the Taj Mahal. I've always wanted to see this. It is even more stunning than I expected. It's incredible what people can build and what love can motivate us to build.
