What to see in and around Aurangabad | Road (Route) map to Aurangabad from Shirdi

Aurangabad is the city which is formed based on the name of the king Aurangzeb who is the last of the Mughal Emperors. There are no special places to be visited in this place but the Aurangabad is the way to reach the famous tourist spots, Ajanta and Ellora caves. The Ellora caves are 32km away from Aurangabad. The Daulatabad fort is at the route of Ellora. The Ghrushneshwar temple which is one among the Dwadasa Jyotirlingas is at the second side of the Ellora caves. The Ajanta caves are 105km away from the East of the Aurangabad. There is the construction of Bibika- Macbara which is at one end of the Aurangabad, which is built by the son of Aurangzeb in the memorial of the wife of Aurangzeb. It appears same like that of the Taj Mahal which is in Agra but it is not as big as of the original Taj and also not as beautiful as Taj.

The Panchakki place is on the other end of Aurangabad. There is a story that one orphan old man had made a permanent living in this place by taking care of the orphan children and used to take care of them. As the children cannot do the heavy works he used to place the small utensils which are useful in cooking like grinding stones of flour mill and other heavy utensils which are useful in the process of cooking. He also made arrangements to get the water from the pipes from the water project which is near to the Aurangabad. He used the force of that water to work as the power supplier for those five utensils and made use of those utensils. By this arrangement, the children used to cook the food very easily without any hard work. The place where those five utensils are there is called as Panchakki. The tomb of that old orphan is in that surrounding only. Just one km away Aurangabad, there are Ellora like caves but the complete area has become like a forest and it is not possible to reach that place.

Mahabalipuram is famous for its beautiful sculptures

Mahabalipuram is famous for its beautiful sculptures | Mahabalipuram is situated at a distance of 57 kms from Chennai
Mahabalipuram
There are around 50 places of interests in south India.   Mahabalipuram is one of them.  Mahabalipuram is situated at a distance of 57kms from Chennai in south.  This is famous for its art of sculpture.  These sculptures are not brought here from other places but are carved out of hills.  Temples, halls, human forms and animals are carved beautifully in the stone.

Chariots of Pandavas are located at a distance of 1 km in the south of Mahabalipuram.  Five chariots are constructed for five Panadavas and another for Draupadi, wife of Pandavas. Another marvel is the temple on the banks of the sea.  In 1911 it was found out that a temple is buried in the sand.  The height of the temple is 90feet.  There is a shivalingam with 16 faces.  Foreigners were also astonished to see the construction of the temple.

All these temples were built by Pallava kings in 6th century.  Other than these4 there is a Ranganatha temple and other temples in the middle of Mahabalipuram.  Pakshiteertham is located in the route of Mahabalipuram and Chengalpattu.  Vedagirishwara temple is located on a hill in the middle of Chengalpattu.  This temple is also carved out of a hill.

Pulicat is one of the oldest lakes and this is a place to watch the migratory birds | Shar center and Pelican Parade can also be visited

Pulicat is one of the oldest lakes and this is a place to watch the migratory birds | Shar center and Pelican Parade can also be visited

Pulicat Lake

A natural salt water lake with naturally formed islands, a waterfall which has not lost its natural charm, an abode for migrated birds, temples of Chengalamma and Kesava.  Visit all these at Pralaya Kaveri.

Shar Center:  The permission of PRO has to be taken to visit Shar Center.  Visitors are not allowed in to some special zones.  The zones in which the tourists are allowed are also very important.  This tour is beneficial for the college education age group but is not much helpful to kids.

Pulicat Lake: Boating facilities are available at this Lake.  Chilka Lake in Orissa is the biggest lake in India and Pulicat occupies the second place.  The water in Pulicat lake are salty as water from Bay of Bengal enters this lake.  But they are not exactly like sea water.  This is a brackish water lake.  In normal days the area of the lake is 250 sqm, while in rainy season it expands to 460sqkm.  Earlier this was called Pralaya Kaveri Lake.  Local people still call this as Pralaya Kaveri.  Part of this lake is in Tamilnadu.

Pelican Parade: Migratory birds which come here every year are the main cause for the popularity of this lake.  Pelican birds come here from Australia to lay eggs.  Flamingoes, spotted ducks, bill birds, white cranes etc roam in this lake.  The legs and nose of these Flamingoes are pink in colour.  May be legs and beaks of these birds are created like this so that they do not drown in water when they go deep in to water to catch fishes with their beaks.  Celebrations are held in the months of February and March which is the peak season in which the birds come here.  Collectors and higher authorities attend this festival.

Even when birds are not there, the beauty of the lake, the skillful fishermen, historic constructions of Portugese etc can be enjoyed all through the year.

Observing the life style of the fishermen closely will be a sweet memory.  Fishermen put all the fishes they catch in a basket and they go singing songs.  Wives of fishermen wait for them with a basket, a bag, oil bottle and a bowl carrying food for their husbands. Bag and oil bottle are for purchasing groceries from the money they get by selling fishes.  They bring  Ragi Ambali for their husbands.

Significance of Jwalamukhi and the nine forms of Goddess Aadisakthi near to it | Where is the temple of Jwalamukhi situated and its touristic importance

Significance of Jwalamukhi and the nine forms of Goddess Aadisakthi near to it | Where is the temple of Jwalamukhi situated and its touristic importance

Jwalamukhi saktipeetams

Jwalamukhi is one of the saktipeetams mentioned in the sloka about Ashtadasa saktipeetams. This is situated in Himachal Pradesh.  But according to the belief of the people here, Goddess Aadisakthi appeared in nine places in nine forms, in and around Himachal Pradesh.  These nine forms of the Goddess are called Navadurgas. These are Manasadevi near Chandigarh,  Kalkadevi in Kalka which is located on the route of Chandigarh and Shimla, Nainadevi situated near Bhakra-nangal dam which is between the borders of Punjab and Himachal Pradesh, Chinthapurni, in the  north direction from there, Jwalamukhi situated at a distance of 50 kms in the northeast direction from Chintapurni.  Kangadadevi temple is at a distance of 40 kms in the north direction, Chanda situated at a distance of 40 kms from Kangadadevi and Vaishno Devi which is situated far from Himachal Pradesh and very near to Jammu.

Sakambari devi temple is situated in the northwest corner of Himachal Pradesh between Paonta Saheb and Dehradun.  Kaangdadevi is also called Wadreswari and Goddess Jwalamukhi is also referred to as Vaishnodevi.   That is why there is a word in the Astadashpeetas  sloka ‘Jwalaayam Vaishnavi’.

There is a special thing about the temples of this area.  No temple in this area has the deities who are in the form of human beings.  A stone of 1 to 1 1/2 feet, which looks like an over turned coconut shell is worshipped here.  This form is called ‘pindi’ here.  All these pilgrim centers have lodges and good hotels.  Rates are affordable by a common man.
