Well the first leg of the trip has come to an end after several very long flights to land us back in Brisbane thismorning. We have had an amazing time exploring several new country's including the highlights - Morocco and the USA.
Now it's time for leg 2 of the trip, as of tomorrow morning we will be making our way from Brisbane in the East of the country across to the Kimberleys in the west for our annual Crocodile research trip, it should make for one hell of a drive!
What I love the most about this image is how everyone is in their own world, doing their own thing... experiencing life just as is... in the moment... everyone is in the moment!
Bhagsunath Temple, Kangra
A medieval shrine, Bhagsunath is Shiva Temple situated about 3kms from Mcleodganj. The temple has been highly revered by the Hindus and the Gorkha Community. The sacred shrine is famed for its two pools that are believed to have healing properties. The best time to visit Bhagsunath Temple is during the annual fair that takes place here in the month of September.
History:The legend has that King Bhagsu built this temple after seeking forgiveness from Snake God. It is believed that Nag Devta was raged in anger as King Bhagsu stole water from the sacred Nag Dal Lake here. Later, the king repented and built the temple in reverence to Nag Devta.
According to another legend, this shrine was the patronage of a specific Gorkha community called Bhagsuwala (after the God Bhagsunag). It is also believed that these rulers built the two pools of water here with tiger-head spouts. A double-story wooden house for pilgrims was also built by them.
Сентябрь - время гона у лосей. В это время браславские рогачи, не находя покоя и вздыхая, бродят по полям и болотам в поисках той самой, что подарит им покой ;) / Mooses have root time in September. During the root restless bulls of Braslav Lakes National Park wander through the bogs and fields, grunting and crushing the bushes with their antlers, until meeting that only one, who would give them rest ;)
