Colors of India (Part 1)

Tulip Garden in Srinagar

I found so many colors! When I look through photos on my phone and laptop, the most colorful and vibrant ones appear to be from India. So, it only seems right and fair to share some favorite captures from my visits to India.

Featured above is a great colorful photo (also currently my phone wallpaper) taken during springtime at the Tulip Garden in Srinagar when the flowers were in full bloom.

Although most pictures are filled with plenty of colors, there are many in which a particular hue stands out. Okay, let’s have some fun with this!

Shall we start with a color that is clean and pure? White it is! I don’t think any introduction is needed to the first picture. The Taj Mahal has got to be one of the most beautiful white structures ever. The next was taken on a plane while flying over Kashmir. And more white in the form of snow – snow in Ladakh and snow in Kashmir.

Hello yellow – traditional and aromatic Kashmiri Kahwa tea, yellow tulips in neat lines at the Tulip Garden, a Shikara on Dal Lake in Srinagar and a typical auto-rickshaw on the manic streets of Delhi.

Orange – tempting sweets being made diligently by a vendor on the roadside, a Chinar tree shining bright in the sunlight and an exquisite sunset. Next to that another stunning pink sunset.

I also saw some unique looking flowers in violet at the Chesmha Shahi Mughal garden in Srinagar. Next to it, Buddha statues, chandeliers and pretty purple lights – decor of the famous B-Bar in Delhi. Talk about contrast right?

As I was halfway through this post, I realized that there were too many photos and colors to fit in one. So, there will be a second part coming up soon. Stay tuned…

And I part with another colorful photo – The Haji Ali Mosque in Mumbai.

    Beautiful! Looking forward to parts II, III and…more perhaps? :-)

  3. This is beautiful! India has been high on my list of places to visit for as long as I can remember. It’s the only one of my top three that I have yet to visit. I’m hoping I can make the dream a reality in the coming months. :)

    Lovely photos. Even though it’s the least colourful, your little ‘white’ collection is fantastic. Clean and pure as you say!
