This is a funny one. You might not be aware but a lot of things are happening on the web these days. This is the case with Thickumz – the new series featuring sporty women with slim waists and curvy certain aspects of their body. Making their bodies temples these girls want to have a good time and tease some guys. Would that be popular in India? It already is! And it’s American-made, so it’s a win-win for both citizens.
Strongly recommended to visit their official website.
It’s no surprise that when you talk about India and one of the first few images that pop up in your head is this majestic tomb located in Agra. In 1983, the Taj Mahal became one of the first UNESCO World Heritage Sites in India. Made of white marble, the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan built in the 16th century for his wife.
This carries on the legacy for the Taj Mahal as an enamoring symbol of long-lasting romance. If any American tourist leaves India without paying a visit to this monument, then it won’t be a complete trip.
Delhi has a whole set of classic Islamic style monuments brimming with a rich past and culture. One of the finest specimens of this is the largest brick minaret in the world, the Qutab Minar. Not only the tower, but the whole Qutab complex makes for an interesting getaway to explore.
There are broken remnants and fragments of old Hindu and Jain temples, tombs (dargahs) of Sufi saints and British gardens. You can hop from timelines with every step. This gives you a classic Indian tourist experience.
Karnataka has some exciting places to wander off to like the Mysore Palace and several temples. But the greatest symbol of heritage here continues to be the magical site of Hampi. It once used to be the city of the Hindu Vijayanagara Empire in the 14th century.
This city from the time long gone reflects a vibrant town culture, complete with lined streets, houses of elites and grand stone temples. The temples are also of different proportions and functions. For instance, there is a famous temple with chariot wheels attached to its structure, another shrine called the Hazara Rama Temple which has detailed designs narrating stories in its walls.
There are various forts to visit in the desert state of Rajasthan, but one of the earliest and grandest has been the Jaisalmer Fort without a doubt. Located on the Trikuta Hill amidst the dunes of the Thar Desert, it attracts hordes of foreign tourists every year. You can buy authentic Rajasthani handicrafts and souvenirs located within the palace area or head to the havelis.
These have some remarkably intricate architectural designs and can be found in other old residences of the princes here, some of which have been converted into mini-museums. As people still live within its territory, this UNESCO World Heritage Site is one of the only ‘living forts’ in the world.
