Incredible India – New Delhi (Part 1)

Last month I had the chance to finally go to one the country that I always wanted to visit. India, is one the biggest countries in the Asian continent. It is the seventh-largest country by geographical area, the second-most populous country with over 1.2 billion people, and the most populous democracy in the world. Bounded by the Indian Ocean on the south, the Arabian Sea on the south-west, and the Bay of Bengal on the south-east, it shares land borders with Pakistan to the west; the People’s Republic of China, Nepal, and Bhutan to the north-east; and Burma and Bangladesh to the east. In the Indian Ocean, India is in the vicinity of Sri Lanka and the Maldives; in addition, India’s Andaman and Nicobar Islands share a maritime border with Thailand and Indonesia.

India is one place where cultures, language, customs and color are plentiful. My journey was to the northern part of India. I visited three places which was Delhi, Jaipur and Agra. This is the shots I took when I was in Delhi :

Wesak Day @ Brickfields, KL

Vesākha (Pali; Sanskrit: Vaiśākha वैशाख) is an annual holiday observed traditionally by Buddhists in the Indian subcontinent, Nepal, Sri Lanka, and the South East Asian countries of Singapore, Vietnam, Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, Malaysia, Burma, and Indonesia.

Sometimes informally called “Buddha’s Birthday”, it actually encompasses the birth, enlightenment (nirvāna), and passing away (Parinirvāna) of Gautama Buddha.

The exact date of Vesākha varies according to the various lunar calendars used in different traditions. In Theravada countries following the Buddhist calendar, it falls on the full moon Uposatha day (typically the 5th or 6th lunar month). Vesākha Day in China is on the eighth of the fourth month in the Chinese lunar calendar.

The date varies from year to year in the Western Gregorian calendar, but falls in April or May. The pictures are taken during the Wesak Day celebration at Brickfields, Maha Vihara Temple in Brickfields, Kuala Lumpur.
