The temple derives its name from the Hindu god Aruna, often personified as the radiations of the rising sun. Wat Arun is among the best known of Thailand's landmark. The first light of the morning reflects off the surface of the temple with pearly iridescence. Although the temple had existed since at least the seventeenth century, its distinctive prang (spires) were built in the early nineteenth century during the reign of King Rama II.</p> <p>Wat Arun, locally known as Wat Chaeng, is situated on the west (Thonburi) bank of the Chao Phraya River. It is easily one of the most stunning temples in Bangkok, not only because of its riverside location but also because the design is very different from the other temples you can visit in Bangkok. Wat Arun (or temple of the dawn) is partly made up of colorfully decorated spires and stands majestically over the water. Wat Arun is almost directly opposite Wat Pho, so it is very easy to get to. From Saphan Taksin boat pier you can take a riverboat that stops at pier 8. From here a small shuttle boat takes you from one side of the river to the other for only 3 baht.  The temple is open daily from 08:30 to 17:30.</p></div> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-field-map field--type-text-with-summary field--label-visually_hidden"> <div class="field__label visually-hidden">Map</div> <div class="field__item"></div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-external-link field--type-link field--label-visually_hidden"> <div class="field__label visually-hidden">External Link</div> <div class="field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wat_Arun" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Wat Arun wiki</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="http://www.bangkok.com/attraction-temple/wat-arun.htm" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Wat Arun</a></div> </div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-tags field--type-entity-reference field--label-visually_hidden"> <div class="field__label visually-hidden">Location</div> <div class="field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="/thailand" hreflang="en">Thailand</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/bangkok" hreflang="en">Bangkok</a></div> </div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-category field--type-entity-reference field--label-visually_hidden"> <div class="field__label visually-hidden">Category</div> <div class="field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="/monument" hreflang="en">Monument</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/photography" hreflang="en">Photography</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/sightseeing" hreflang="en">Sightseeing</a></div> </div> </div> Thu, 28 Mar 2019 06:56:33 +0000 admin 163 at http://chennai-in-focus.com Singapore Flyer http://chennai-in-focus.com/singapore-flyer <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">Singapore Flyer</span> <div id="flexslider-3" class="flexslider optionset-default imagestyle-flexslider-full"> <ul class="slides"> <li> <img src="/sites/default/files/styles/flexslider_full/public/2019-03/_MG_0476.jpg?itok=jRhWa5g7" width="1800" height="1350" alt="Singapore Flyer" typeof="foaf:Image" class="image-style-flexslider-full" /> <div class="flex-caption"></div> </li> <li> <img src="/sites/default/files/styles/flexslider_full/public/2019-03/_MG_0628.jpg?itok=eGgx18JO" width="1800" height="1350" alt="Singapore Flyer" typeof="foaf:Image" class="image-style-flexslider-full" /> <div class="flex-caption"></div> </li> <li> <img src="/sites/default/files/styles/flexslider_full/public/2019-03/_MG_0558_0.jpg?itok=WTdHMhNT" width="1800" height="1350" alt="Singapore Flyer" typeof="foaf:Image" class="image-style-flexslider-full" /> <div class="flex-caption"></div> </li> <li> <img src="/sites/default/files/styles/flexslider_full/public/2019-03/_MG_0404.jpg?itok=6tavMphq" width="1800" height="1350" alt="Singapore Flyer" typeof="foaf:Image" class="image-style-flexslider-full" /> <div class="flex-caption"></div> </li> <li> <img src="/sites/default/files/styles/flexslider_full/public/2019-03/_MG_0329.jpg?itok=HvbMw6Tf" width="1800" height="1350" alt="Singapore Flyer" typeof="foaf:Image" class="image-style-flexslider-full" /> <div class="flex-caption"></div> </li> </ul> </div> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span lang="" about="/user/1" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">admin</span></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Fri, 03/22/2019 - 20:45</span> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p>The Singapore Flyer is a giant Ferris wheel in Singapore.

Jinji or Senchi) in Tamil Nadu, India is one of the surviving forts in Tamil Nadu, India. It lies in Villupuram District, 160 kilometres (99 mi) from the state capital, Chennai, and is close to the Union Territory of Puducherry. The fort is so fortified, that Shivaji, the Maratha king, ranked it as the "most impregnable fortress in India" and it was called the "Troy of the East" by the British. The nearest town with a railway station is Tindivanam and the nearest airport is Chennai (Madras), located 150 kilometres (93 mi) away.</p> <p>Originally the site of a small fort built by the kings of konar dynasty and maintained by Chola dynasty in 9th century AD, it was later modified by the Vijayanagar empire in the 13th century to elevate it to the status of an unbreachable citadel to protect the small town of Gingee. It was also the headquarters of the Gingee Nayaks, during the Nayak domination in northern Tamil Nadu. The fort was built as a strategic place of fending off any invading armies. As per one account, the fort was built during the 15–16th century by the Nayaks of Gingee, the lieutenants of the Vijayanagara Empire and who later became independent kings (Nayaks of Gingee ). The fort passed to the Marathas under the leadership of Shivaji in 1677 AD, Bijapur sultans, the Moghuls, Carnatic Nawabs, French and the British in 1761. The fort is closely associated with Raja Tej Singh, who unsuccessfully revolted against the Nawab of Arcot and eventually lost his life in a battle.</p></div> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-field-map field--type-text-with-summary field--label-visually_hidden"> <div class="field__label visually-hidden">Map</div> <div class="field__item"><iframe src="https://www.google.com/maps/embed?pb=!1m18!1m12!1m3!1d3898.976496352388!2d79.39567679891712!3d12.249869741009046!2m3!1f0!2f0!3f0!3m2!1i1024!2i768!4f13.1!3m3!1m2!1s0x3a53351449197217%3A0x80e8271e44475041!2sGingee+Fort!5e0!3m2!1sen!2sin!4v1552503262975" width="100%" height="300" frameborder="0" style="border:0" allowfullscreen></iframe></div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-external-link field--type-link field--label-visually_hidden"> <div class="field__label visually-hidden">External Link</div> <div class="field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gingee_Fort" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Gingee Fort</a></div> </div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-tags field--type-entity-reference field--label-visually_hidden"> <div class="field__label visually-hidden">Location</div> <div class="field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="/viluppuram" hreflang="en">Viluppuram</a></div> </div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-category field--type-entity-reference field--label-visually_hidden"> <div class="field__label visually-hidden">Category</div> <div class="field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="/category/architecture" hreflang="en">Architecture</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/education" hreflang="en">Education</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/monument" hreflang="en">Monument</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/photography" hreflang="en">Photography</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/sightseeing" hreflang="en">Sightseeing</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/%3Fq%3Dtaxonomy/term/340" hreflang="en">Tourist Spot</a></div> </div> </div> Wed, 13 Mar 2019 18:25:58 +0000 admin 151 at http://chennai-in-focus.com Parunthumparai http://chennai-in-focus.com/parunthumpara <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">Parunthumparai</span> <div id="flexslider-10" class="flexslider optionset-default imagestyle-flexslider-full"> <ul class="slides"> <li> <img src="/sites/default/files/styles/flexslider_full/public/2019-03/IMG_8603.jpg?itok=nT6yho-n" width="1800" height="1350" alt="Parunthumpara" typeof="foaf:Image" class="image-style-flexslider-full" /> <div class="flex-caption"></div> </li> <li> <img src="/sites/default/files/styles/flexslider_full/public/2019-03/IMG_8626-.jpg?itok=1jU8MGXX" width="1800" height="1350" alt="Parunthumpara" typeof="foaf:Image" class="image-style-flexslider-full" /> <div class="flex-caption"></div> </li> <li> <img src="/sites/default/files/styles/flexslider_full/public/2019-03/IMG_8631.jpg?itok=ALW_N1jg" width="1800" height="1350" alt="Parunthumpara" typeof="foaf:Image" class="image-style-flexslider-full" /> <div class="flex-caption"></div> </li> <li> <img src="/sites/default/files/styles/flexslider_full/public/2019-03/IMG_8635.jpg?itok=osmWJf8e" width="1800" height="1350" alt="Parunthumpara" typeof="foaf:Image" class="image-style-flexslider-full" /> <div class="flex-caption"></div> </li> <li> <img src="/sites/default/files/styles/flexslider_full/public/2019-03/IMG_8636.jpg?itok=2h9tH8oK" width="1800" height="1350" alt="Parunthumpara" typeof="foaf:Image" class="image-style-flexslider-full" /> <div class="flex-caption"></div> </li> <li> <img src="/sites/default/files/styles/flexslider_full/public/2019-03/IMG_8617.jpg?itok=fd_cvMIU" width="1800" height="1350" alt="Parunthumpara" typeof="foaf:Image" class="image-style-flexslider-full" /> <div class="flex-caption"></div> </li> <li> <img src="/sites/default/files/styles/flexslider_full/public/2019-03/IMG_8646.jpg?itok=B0ymcI9-" width="1800" height="1350" alt="Parunthumpara" typeof="foaf:Image" class="image-style-flexslider-full" /> <div class="flex-caption"></div> </li> </ul> </div> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span lang="" about="/user/1" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">admin</span></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Sat, 03/09/2019 - 14:36</span> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-field-ad-block field--type-text-long field--label-visually_hidden"> <div class="field__label visually-hidden">AD Block</div> <div class="field__item"><script async src="//pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js"></script> <ins class="adsbygoogle" style="display:block" data-ad-format="fluid" data-ad-layout-key="-gw-3+1f-3d+2z" data-ad-client="ca-pub-8435043983692168" data-ad-slot="3971229280"></ins> <script> (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

a temple complex in Cambodia and the largest religious monument in the world, with the site measuring 162.6 hectares (1,626,000 m2; 402 acres). It was originally constructed as a Hindu temple of god Vishnu for the Khmer Empire, gradually transforming into a Buddhist temple toward the end of the 12th century. It was built by the Khmer King Suryavarman II in the early 12th century in Yaśodharapura (Khmer: យសោធរបុរៈ, present-day Angkor), the capital of the Khmer Empire, as his state temple and eventual mausoleum. Breaking from the Shaiva tradition of previous kings, Angkor Wat was instead dedicated to Vishnu. As the best-preserved temple at the site, it is the only one to have remained a significant religious center since its foundation. The temple is at the top of the high classical style of Khmer architecture. It has become a symbol of Cambodia, appearing on its national flag, and it is the country's prime attraction for visitors</p></div> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-field-map

Jawadhi, Jawadhu Hills) are an extension of the Eastern Ghats spread across parts of Vellore and Tiruvannamalai districts in the northern part of the state of Tamil Nadu in southeastern India.This range separates Vellore and Tiruvannamalai districts. Vellore district lies on the north western side and Tiruvannamalai district lies on the south eastern side of this range. About 50 miles (80 km) wide and 20 miles (32 km) long, they are bisected into eastern and western sections by the Cheyyar and Agaram rivers, tributaries of the Palar. They consist of bluish gray granites, with peaks averaging 3,600–3,800 feet (1,100–1,150 m). The hills are sparsely populated; the majority of the inhabitants are Malayali tribespeople, though other castes are also present. There are many tourist places near Javadhu Hills, e.g., the Beemanmadavu waterfalls. The Indian astronomer Vainu Bappu selected the hills as the site of the Kavalur Observatory (VBO), which began operations in 1967. The towns of Tirupattur, Vaniyambadi and Ambur of Vellore district are located on the north western side and the towns of Chengam and Polur of Tiruvannamalai district are located on the south eastern side .</p></div> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-field-map field--type-text-with-summary field--label-visually_hidden"> <div class="field__label visually-hidden">Map</div> <div class="field__item"><iframe src="https://www.google.com/maps/embed?pb=!1m18!1m12!1m3!1d7787.461795465752!2d78.88250122438296!3d12.599978814401746!2m3!1f0!2f0!3f0!3m2!1i1024!2i768!4f13.1!3m3!1m2!1s0x3bad1da10e7bb649%3A0xab39f901ac80b06f!2sJawadhu+Hills%2C+Jamunamarathur%2C+Tamil+Nadu+635703!5e0!3m2!1sen!2sin!4v1530280395058" width="100%" height="300" frameborder="0" style="border:0" allowfullscreen></iframe></div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-external-link field--type-link field--label-visually_hidden"> <div class="field__label visually-hidden">External Link</div> <div class="field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Javadi_Hills" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">The Javadhu Hills</a></div> </div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-tags field--type-entity-reference field--label-visually_hidden"> <div class="field__label visually-hidden">Location</div> <div class="field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/285" hreflang="en">Tiruvannamalai</a></div> </div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-category field--type-entity-reference field--label-visually_hidden"> <div class="field__label visually-hidden">Category</div> <div class="field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="/nature" hreflang="en">Nature</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/photography" hreflang="en">Photography</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/sightseeing" hreflang="en">Sightseeing</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/%3Fq%3Dtaxonomy/term/340" hreflang="en">Tourist Spot</a></div> </div> </div> Fri, 29 Jun 2018 13:43:45 +0000 admin 105 at http://chennai-in-focus.com
