Lingana Fort.

___
#Lingana is a massive pinnacle on the mainline of the #Sahyadri's between #Raigad and Torna.

It is in the #Mahad Taluka of Raigad district. It is 35 km away from Mahad town. It takes its name from its shape which is like a linga.

Lingana fort was built by #ShivajiMaharaj in 1648 to secure central #Konkan against the Sidis. Under the #Maratha's, Lingana was used as a penal settlement. The prisoners were confined to rock dungeons with one dungeon holding 50 prisoners. Lingana was captured by a Colonel Prother in 1818.

Ellora Caves || Maharashtra. 🇮🇳
.
Ellora Caves is one of the largest rock-cut monastery-temple cave complexes in the world, and a #UNESCO World Heritage Site, featuring #Buddhist, #Hindu and #Jain monuments, and artwork, dating from the 600-1000 CE period.

Ellora caves have been branded as a #worldheritage site. The caves represent one of the largest rock-hewn monastic-temple complexes in the world. *CAVE 16* of Ellora, in particular, features the largest single monolithic rock excavation in the world, the #Kailasha temple, a chariot shaped monument dedicated to Shiva. The Kailasha temple excavation also features the gods, goddesses, and writings found in #Vaishnavism, #Shaktism.

Ellora caves are locally known as ‘Verul Leni’. The Great #Kailasa (Cave 16) at Ellora boasts of being the largest single monolithic excavation in the world.

Ellora caves have been hewn out of the volcanic basaltic formation of Maharashtra, known as ‘Deccan Trap’. The Great #Kailash is a freestanding, multi-storied temple complex, built to resemble #MountKailash - the abode of #LordShiva.

Dashavatara cave (Cave 15) at Ellora depicts the ten avataras of #LordVishnu.

The entrance of Ramesvara cave (Cave 21) is adorned with figurines of River Goddesses - #Ganga and #Yamuna.

The design of Dhumar Lena (Cave 29) is similar to the cave temple on #Elephanta Island, near #Mumbai.
.
Buddhist caves mostly consist of viharas or monasteries, which include living quarters, sleeping quarters, kitchens, and other rooms.

Mumbai || Railways 🛤️

7 facts that should give you some idea:

1. The #Mumbai suburban railway system is spread over 465 km-
That is more than the distance between Mumbai to #Pune & back.

Mumbai local train services don’t just connect the city to its suburbs they also connect several townships that stand on the fringes of the city.

2. The Mumbai suburban railway operates 2,342 train services:
Mumbai local trains are the primary mode of transport for hundreds & thousands of people who travel for as many as 5 hours everyday to & from work.

The city’s bus services— BEST has been reporting losses for 7 years now & their long-distance connectivity is relatively limited as compared to the local trains.

With the city flooding every year with the lightest showers, the train services are often the last resort for most #Mumbaikar's.

3. It carries more than 7.5 million commuters daily
That is more than 5 times the population of Estonia, 10 times the population of #Bhutan & just a little less than the population of #Switzerland.

4. The railway tracks are silent only for about 90 minutes a day:
The Mumbai suburban railway system sleeps for a little more than an hour & a half everyday.
The first train leaves Western railway’s #Churchgate station at 4.15 am; the last train reaches Borivali at 2.05 am.

On the Central line, the first train leaves Mumbai Chhatrapati #Shivaji Terminus at 4.12 am & the last train chugs into #Karjat at 2.45 am.

5. Mumbai suburban railway system has 4 major corridors

6. Without the Mumbai local trains, we’d go hungry!
The famed #dabbawallahs of Mumbai take the train every day, delivering thousands of lunch boxes without fail.

7. Not even terrorists could shut it down for long:
It took all of 3 hours for the trains to start running again after the infamous 2006 serial blasts along the suburban railway line.

At first the services were skeletal but they resumed completely under 16 hrs.

Bandra_Worli sea link, Mumbai, Maharashtra. 🇮🇳
___
Credits: 📸 @shantaramkelkar ©️
___
One of the coolest facts about the bridge is the fact that its weight is equal to the weight of 56,000 African Elephants put together, after all, 90,000 ton of cement was used to build this beauty.

The length of the bridge is 63 times the height of the Qutub Minar. The bridge’s height is 126 meter. It’s width is 66 ft. Bandra-Worli Sea Link’s largest pylon towers are 128 meter in height.

All the steel cables put together would probably be as long as the circumference of the earth and each one of them is strong enough to hold 900 tons of weight.

Over Rs 90 million was spent on illuminating the sea link.

Construction of the sea link was not only worked on by aced groups from India, but groups from 11 other countries including Egypt, China, Canada, Switzerland, Britain, HongKong, Thailand, Singapore, Philippines, Indonesia and Serbia.

3)The earliest known archaeological evidence suggests that settlement around Varanasi in the Ganga valley began in the 11th or 12th century BC, placing it among the world's oldest continually inhabited cities.

4)Varanasi was also home to Parshva, the 2️⃣3️⃣rd #Jain Tirthankara and the earliest Tirthankara accepted as a historical figure in the 8th century BC.

5)The celebrated 🇨🇳 Chinese traveler Xuanzang, who visited the city around 635 AD, attested that the city was a centre of religious and artistic activities, and that it extended for about 5 kilometres (3.1 mi) along the western 🏞️ bank of the Ganges.

8) in 1194, the city succumbed to turkish muslim rule under qutb-ud-din aibak, who ordered the destruction of some one thousand temples in the city.

9)in the #rigveda, 📑 the city is referred to as kāśī or #kashi, the luminous city as an eminent seat of learning. the name kāśī is also mentioned in the skanda purana. in one verse, #lordshiva says, "the three worlds form one city of mine, and kāśī is my royal palace therein."
