The land where Swami Vivekananda acquired his enlightenment, the land where the oceans converge and the land where inspiration awaits. The beaches of Kanyakumari offer a serene and pristine view of the vast landscape in front at the confluence of the three oceans the Bay of Bengal and the Arabian Sea, and the Indian Ocean, also called the Thriveni Sangam. The reddish hue of the skyline will simply take your breath away.

The pink city Jaipur can soothe your soul with its early morning sojourn as you view the breathtaking landscape from Jal Mahal, Jaipur. The strategic placement of this majestic palace amidst the Aravallis in the middle of the Man Sagar lake makes it a spot to enjoy both the sunrises and sunsets equally. If you observe carefully, the hills on the both East and West of the palace make an open corridor, allowing a perfect unobstructed sunrise and sunset view from the serenity of the Man Sagar Lake.
6. Sunrise View Along the Yamuna River: The Taj Mahal
Along the banks of the Yamuna River lies the crown of India The Mystical Taj Mahal. And an early morning dedicated to to witness this sunrise can be experience of a lifetime. The Taj Sunrise is a rare moment (and all travel photographers will agree to this fact instantly) that this one ‘perfect’ moment comes to the luck of a rare few, as the cameras await long hours along the shore to capture that perfect composition, when the Yamuna River is completely still, the skyline spreads a mystical hue as the sun rises and the Taj reflects its mirror image on the Yamuna waters. Certainly, a magical moment..
7. Sunrise View with the morning prayers at Dakhineshwar, Kolkata:
The sunrise along the Dakhineshwar Temple, Kolkata is a moment of inner peace. Early in the morning, everyday, the temple prepares to offer prayers to Goddess Kali, as the temple bells ring gently breaking the silence of the dawn, the pigeons flutter their wings in the air, to scatter the sun light across the temple premises. A soothing dip in the Ganges cleanses the soul, and the sun glows with a gentle warmth, making it a pure surrender to the divine.
Many a sunrises await the wanderer..It needs the eye of a ‘Freeman’ to witness the glory of nature’s most potent secrets, for when the light shines and the darkness fades is when a man meets his true destiny….
