Gurdwara Gwarighat is on the picturesque Southern bank of the Narmada River in Jabalpur, Madhya Pradesh.
Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji, the founder of Sikhism, undertook four journeys and all four in different directions from his native Punjab in order to spread his message.
During return from his first such travel towards east and south of India, in 1501 at an age of 31, Guru Nanak and his companion Mardana walked along the Northeast side of the River Narmada until they reached Gwarighat where they crossed the river.
They say you should always walk looking in front of you, high shoulders, fierce eyes pointed to the horizon.
They want you to focus on yourself, on the perspection other people have of you.
This way you forget the small things and you don't see how many of them you step on, running in no direction.
That's why I've always preferred walking looking at my feet: nature is way more important than anything I will ever do. .

Aoraki Mount Cook, Nez Zealand
Aoraki / Mount Cook is the highest mountain in New Zealand. Its height since 2014 is listed as 3,724 metres.
At the foot of the mountain sits the village of Mount Cook - a comfortable haven in one of the most unforgiving parts of New Zealand. On every side, the Southern Alps scrape the sky. Even in summer, the weather can change in the blink of an eye.
The region is only 44 kilometres from the coast, so storms can arrive suddenly from the Tasman Sea to create dangerous conditions for climbers.
Despite the sometimes difficult conditions, Aoraki / Mount Cook National Park is an exceptionally beautiful place to visit.
You don’t have to be a mountaineer to interact with the stunning scenery; there are various alpine walks beginning near the village, all about three hours return.
Flightseeing, tours to the Tasman Glacier and stargazing are other ways to optimise your time here. .
