Jhansi is the gateway to Bundelkhand a region rich in culture and heritage. Located centrally between the central, western and southern India the place used to be a stronghold of the Chandela kings. After losing its significance in the 12th century the kingdom in Jhansi rose again to prominence in the 17th century. However, its greatest claim to fame was under the rule of the legendary queen Rani Laxmi Bai. Rani Laxmi Bai along with Ghulam Gaus Khan, Jhalkari Bai and others led forces against the British rule during the revolt of 1857. She bravely died at the age of 22 years while fighting for India’s freedom. Later, Chandra Shekhar Azad, Pandit Parmanand, Bhagwandas Mahaur and others lead the freedom movement from here.

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.
The power of the Kashi Vishwanath temple hit us! Incredibly powerful. So greatful to the divine universal spirit of all.
