The Hola Mohalla warriors of Punjab
Founded by Guru Gobind Singh, the tenth Guru of Sikhism, Hola Mohalla is a three-day event that usually falls in March, one day after the festival of Holi. It marks the beginning of the Sikh New Year and is held in the small town of Anandpur Sahib in Punjab, turning it into a rambunctious carnival setting. It showcases the fierce martial arts of Nihang Sikhs, as well as kirtan (religious chants), music and poetry, and ends with a glorious military-style procession. #proudindian#culturalpride#punjabtradition#indialove#insideindiatour#_coi#cntraveler
Taj Mahal is a white marble structure located in Agra, Uttar Pradesh, India. It is believed to be built by Mughal emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his third wife, Mumtaz Mahal, but there are multiple proofs to prove it wrong !
Taj Mahal is a corrupt form of the sanskrit term Tejo-Mahalay signifying a Siva Temple. Agreshwar Mahadev i.e., The Lord of Agra was consecrated in it. #tajmahalhistory#_coin#insideindiatour#indiatourism#cnttravellerindia
Jallikattu, in the simplest of terms, is a sport conducted as part of Mattu Pongal, the third day of the four-day-long harvest festival Pongal. The Tamil word 'mattu' means bull, and the third day of Pongal is dedicated to cattle, a key partner in the process of farming. Bulls get more importance over cows for bulls help farmers to plough their field, pull their cart loaded with goods, and inseminate cows, in turn resulting in production of milk, offspring and preserving indigenous species.
Temple bulls, usually considered the head of all cattle in a village, are readied for the sport. Temple bulls from different villages are brought to a common arena where the Jallikattu happens.
The bulls are then freed into a ground, one by one. Participants are to embrace the bull's hump, and try to tame it by bringing the raging bull to a stop, possibly by riding for as long as possible holding its hump.
The bulls that could be tamed are considered weaker, and are used for domestic purposes by the farmers and the untameable ones -- considered the strongest and most virile -- are used for breeding the cows in many villages. #isupportjallikattu#lovetn#_coi#indiatour#indianculture#insideindiatour#cnttravellerindia#storiesofindia#prepongalscenes
