  • Byodo In Temple – The Perfect Byodo In Temple – The Perfect Place to Spend a Day in Serenity at Oahu

    • From: CatherineWatson
    • Description:

       

      byodo in templeLast month I went to the Hawaiian Island Oahu with a couple of my friends and it was one of my best summer vacations ever. Our Oahu trip started with a lot of activity. We toured the historic Pearl Harbor, tried our hands at snorkeling in North shore and also visited the Polynesian Culture Center which provided us a deeper insight into Polynesian culture. It was educational and entertaining at the same time.

       

      After all the excitement and activities, we wanted to experience something different, something to pacify our soul and mind in Hawaii. Our friendly chauffeur of Hawaii Taxi and Shuttle Service suggested us to visit Byodo-In Temple, situated at the foot of Koolau Mountain in the Valley of the Temples Memorial Park. We googled it to get more information. When we found out that the temple had been featured in ABC’s Emmy Award Winning drama series LOST, as the home of Korean woman Sun’s father, our excitement just doubled. We could not hold ourselves and we visited Byodo-In the very next day.

       

      Some highlights of our Byodo-In Temple visit:

       

      Ringing the Bon-Sho

      Bon- shoAfter a drive through a cemetery, we reached the premises of the temple. As soon as we set foot inside the area of the temple, we could not help but ring the massive three-ton brass bell called Bon-sho. Turns out, apparently, it is customary to ring the bell before entering the temple to purify your mind off of evil spirits. We didn’t know that.

      Close to the bell there was a small donation box where we donated few pennies. Our small effort in contributing to the temple, which in fact helps maintain its grandeur.

       

      Capturing the beauty of Byodo In Temple:

      BEAUTIFUL SCENERY OF BYODO IN TEMPLEByodo-In is truly a hidden gem of Oahu tucked away behind the valley of temples cemetery. The landscaped grounds, postcard perfect scenes and landmarks under the deep lush green hills are so awe inspiring that we could not resist ourselves and took hundreds of photographs. It was our way of trying to capture a bit of the peacefulness and natural beauty that the temple offers.

       

      Praying to the Amida Buddha

      Amida BuddhaThe main attraction of the temple is 9 feet tall, gold lacquer painted, wood carved statue of Amida/Lotus Buddha inside the Phoenix hall. This big statue is surrounded by a series of other small statues of Boddhisattvas (the enlightened beings).

      We had to take off our shoes in order to enter the hall where devotees were praying in front of the statue. They were offering flowers and burning incense to the Amida Buddha. I also got a chance to offer some flowers to the amazingly peaceful looking Amida Buddha.

       

      Enjoying with the Nature’s Critters:

      WILD LIFE OF BYODO IN TEMPLEIn the temple premises, we saw peacocks and black swans roaming in the garden grounds and turtles lounging beside the pond. The ponds of temple are filled with the Japanese fish, Koi. We purchased some fish food from the gift shop and fed them. The gift shop also had some cool Japanese souvenir which I wanted to buy but couldn’t afford it.

       

       

      After wandering around the temple for an hour, we rested in a Meditation House. The atmosphere was so serene that I could literally feel my inner soul. I have seriously never felt so peaceful in my entire life. I wanted to stay there for the whole day but my friends did not let me do that.


      Byodo-In is a perfect spiritual destination to spend a peaceful day, soaking in nature away from the bustling areas of Oahu. Parking is free and it only cost $3 to explore this hidden gem. So, don’t forget to visit this place on your Oahu tour. You will simply find inner peace here.

  • Top 5 Must Visit Places for Ho Top 5 Must Visit Places for Holidays in India

    • From: manojihpl
    • Description:

       

      Holidays in India offer several choices in terms of destinations, themes and extraordinarily varying experiences to satisfy the most discerning traveler. The country abounds with breathtaking monuments, spectacular temples, magnificent forts and beach destinations to cater to the different breed of travelers flocking in India. In this article, I have listed five popular tourist destinations in India visited by thousands of tourists every year.

      Taj Mahal
      There are  several quotes given to the Wonder of the World ‘Taj Mahal’, the Mughal era considered to be one of the biggest drawers of overseas tourists in India. Famous Noble prize winner Rabindranath Tagore  referred it to as ‘ a teardrop on the cheek of time’. The romantic aura that permeates in the atmosphere around Taj Mahal on full moon nights is globally renowned. Emblazoned as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, Taj Mahal is the star attraction of Agra and featured in almost all honeymoon tour packages of India.


      Khajuraho Temples
      It would not be an overstatement to call Khajuraho temples ‘a sensuous poetry in stones’ as the outer walls of these temples abounds with erotic carvings. The Khajuraho Temples is a question mark on the medieval thoughts of the current society where sex is considered  as a taboo. Built in the 10th century under the aegis of the Chandela dynasty, these temples are one of the popular tourist attractions in the state of Madhya Pradesh. This architectural marvel dating 1000 years back is a source for the study of architecture, joy & spiritual adulation for global tourists.

      Varanasi

      The most sacred destination for the Hindu pilgrims, Varanasi is one of the oldest inhabited cities of the world. Varanasi is a must inclusion in your India tour itinerary if you are looking out for a spiritual experience. 100 in number, the ghats of Varanasi stretch for miles along the holy river Ganges. It is believed that a bath in the holy waters of the river Ganga will wash away your sins and release you from the cycle of re-birth. The city abounds with several temples such as Kashi Vishwanath temple, Sankat Mochan Hanuman temple, Kalbhairav temple and Bharat Mata temple. Besides temples, the prestigious Benares Hindu University, Ramnagar fort and Varanasi silk weaving center are some of the highlights of the tour.

       

       

      Goa
      There was a time when cocktail parties, dancing on the beach and meeting new people used to define an ultimate dream vacation. Today, the serenity & seclusion of pristine beaches, rejuvenating Ayurvedic massages and heritage excursions have a greater appeal with both local & international tourists. The behavioral change of tourists has been well adapted  by the tourism department of Goa and has led to the transformation of this tiny Indian state into a family vacation destination from a hippy ideal. There are different types of hotels & resorts available in Goa catering to all kinds of travelers.

      Kerala

      Also known as ‘God’s Own Country’, Kerala is immensely bestowed with treasures of nature. National Geographic Magazine has listed Kerala as one of the top 50 destinations of the world to visit before you die. The coastline of Kerala spans over 580 kilometers and is lined with several beautiful beaches. Kovalam is the most famous beach in Kerala and home to several award winning Ayurvedic resorts. However, the backwaters of Alleppey are considered the backbone of tourism in this state. A candle-lit dinner on board a Kerala houseboat under the immense canopy of the star studded sky is an experience par excellence.

      You’re lying down on a terry cloth massage table as a skilled masseuse applies aromatic herbal infused massage oil to your weary body.  You sip a perfect ice cold Mai Tai and inhale the warm ocean air as you watch a crimson sun descend into the Andaman Sea, the sky becomes a canvas of vibrant reds, oranges and bold blues, the ocean seems on fire.  You have arrived.  This is Thailand.

       

      Situated in the heart of South East Asia, between the Andaman Sea and the Gulf of Thailand, this tropical country, dubbed “The Land of Smiles,” is just north of the Equator.  There are a variety of things to do and see to satisfy those seeking Adventure, culture, history as well as world class cuisine.

       

      The first stop for many visitors is the capitol city of Bangkok, which is renowned for its street food, culture and nightlife.  Many Thais believe the best food is to be had from street vendors who serve up a variety of curry and noodle dishes for the equivalent of two to four thousand Won.  The one major detraction from this experience is the ever-present scent of exhaust fumes from the aforementioned and ceaseless traffic jams. Walking best does getting around the city, though you can take a chance and hop on a “tuk-tuk” scooter taxi and sit in traffic.  Bangkok is also home to the immense reclining Buddha at the impressive Wat Pho temple. Upon entering you will be taken back to an era gone by as you catch a glimpse of this revered masterpiece, often forgetting the hustle and bustle beyond the temples walls.

       

      A perfect contrast to the chaos of Bangkok is southern coastal Khao Lak, which has undergone a large reconstruction following the 2004 Tsunami.  Khao Lak has pristine beaches backed by mountains with a relatively low number of visitors when compared to more popular areas such as Phuket.  The main town is a two-lane affair with a variety of small shops, restaurants and a small supermarket.  A number of small beachfront hotels operate on the south end of Khao Lak beach, with open air beach side dining, massage, and swimming pools.  Khao Lak is the destination of choice for those seeking a quite beachside escape.

       

      Phuket, located an hour and a half south of Khao Lak is Thailand’s largest and most developed island resort area.  Phuket’s western shore consists of numerous beautiful, crescent shaped beaches.  The most developed beach area is the notorious Patong Beach.  Patong is reminiscent of a large scale Waikiki mixed with a double shot of one part scandal and one part shame.  For hard partying 20-somethings, Patong could quite possibly be the best place to find trouble.  Bang Tao beach, located to the north is one of the better areas for families, devoid of the psyche scarring imagery of the Patong nightlife. One of the most family friendly resorts at Bang Tao is the beachfront Best Western Premiere, whose staff will bend over backwards to accommodate guests and children.  Surprisingly, the hotel food here is actually both excellent and cheap and a beachside massage will only set you back $10 per hour. 

       

      There are numerous tour operators on Phuket with popular destinations including the Phi Phi islands; Maya Bay, where cult classic The Beach starring Leonardo DiCaprio was filmed; the world class dive sites of the off the grid Similan and Surin Islands; as well as tours which will take you on Elephant safaris.  If you go on only one tour, go on the Twilight Sea Canoe tour with world renowned, eco-conscious John Gray’s Sea Canoe.  You’ll explore sea caves, interact with bioluminescent organisms, examine unique geological features, and experience a beautiful Phang Nga Bay sunset, all while dining on a phenomenal Thai Seafood Dinner.  Following dinner, board a sea kayak with a ceremonial kratong, paddle out and light the kratong’s candles and incense before releasing it, and all your worries, into the sea as the last of the sun’s rays finally fade beyond the horizon.  Although this trip is one of the most expensive in the area, setting you back about 275,000won for two people, the service, professionalism, and show that this tour provides pays for itself.
