Trip to India
We took an 8-day trip to India in early Spring 2010. We spent most of the time to visit well-known Buddhist holy sites in India: the Mahabodhi temple at Bodhgaya, Sarnath and Kushinagar. Taj Mahal, Ganges river and some places in New Delhi are also included in this trip. Enjoy the pictures!
