The marvelous Chennakesava temple of Indian Hoysala dynasty 南印度的古老庙宇

Rich in history and culture, India has so many various architecture. The Channakeshava temple is one of the best Hoysalan Temples I have visited in South India. It’s located 35 km from Mysuru. After seeing the pictures of this intricate architectural glory, I put it as the number one must-visit spot in my South India bucket list. I stayed in Bangalore for a couple of day so I thought of making a day trip to the temple.

In India, although there is a complete train network but it wasn’t easy to plan your trip especially when you have limited time, because you never know whether the train would be on time. I’ve made a post on Stackexchange website for the possibility to do a day trip to the temple from Bangalore.

Today I’d like to give my dear Steemit friends some tips to get to the temple from Bangalore city and show you how wonderful this architectural masterpiece is.

今天我要介绍一个南印度有名的印度教寺庙,Channakeshava。这座匠心独运的寺庙是我在南印度看到的最精致的一座。它离印度南部的主要城市迈索尔35公里,从迈索尔可以搭公车过去。如果说北印度是殖民的历史,可以很多波斯帝国影响的建筑,南印度可以看到更多印度教的历史和建筑。我是从班加罗市区Channakeshava寺庙的。印度有很密集的火车网,但是印度火车经常晚点,所以其实很难计划行程,尤其是赶时间的话。

我想要分享从班加罗过去的交通和Channakeshava寺庙的美丽细节。

I love backpacking while dressing nice 背包客也要穿得好看

As a tourism student, I backpacked in more than 40 countries. I’m a minimalists when it comes to the toiletry and cosmetic bags. The week before my trips I would always been busy filling in my travel sized bottles. My toiletry bag for a 1 month backpacking trip only occupies like 1/7 of my backpack.
And the rest of the space all goes to different clothing pieces.

作为一个旅游学的学生,我背包旅行过超过40个国家,背包体积毕竟有限,我都会尽可能缩小护肤品的体积,用一些非常小的旅行分装,精确到ml,比如1个月的面霜我不会用超过10ml的分装盒。其余的体积都给衣服了,因为旅程辛苦如果再天天穿的灰头土脸恐怕热情都会消失。
基本原则是尽可能带简介的上衣,黑白格子条纹,纯色的裙子,过膝的铅笔裙就很好穿。舍弃单调的冲锋衣吧,小西装或者风衣一样保暖而且搭起来容易多了。 Continue reading I love backpacking while dressing nice 背包客也要穿得好看

Watching Indian traditional Kathakali show in Kochi, Kerala. 在印度科钦观赏喀拉拉邦的传统戏剧

I went to watch Kerala traditional drama show – Kathakali during my trip in Kochi city. It was quite memorable. Kathakali is one of the major forms of classical Indian dance. I was so impressed by its elaborately colorful make-ups, costumes and face masks. Kathakali = Katha ( story) + Kali ( dance), it uses a very interesting way of storytelling. I think it takes a lot of patience to do elaborate make up and heavy costumes.

在印度南部科钦旅游的时候,我去观看了喀拉拉邦著名的传统戏剧卡塔卡利,让我印象深刻。作为印度歌剧主要流派之一,卡塔卡利以它色彩斑斓的化妆,服饰和面具而闻名。卡塔卡利字面的意思其实是故事加上音乐。这个形式的歌剧的叙事方法其实很有意思,利用沉重夸张的化妆服饰和道具。 Continue reading Watching Indian traditional Kathakali show in Kochi, Kerala. 在印度科钦观赏喀拉拉邦的传统戏剧
