Day 5 - Pandal-hopping. Am still sorting through all my pictures but here’s one to start with. Unfortunately, none of the pictures really capture the stupendous scale or the magnitude of the creativity and the craftsmanship that goes into these temples that are built to celebrate the goddess Durga for just one week. It is awe-inspiring... #durgapuja2018#pandalhopping#inthemotherland#streetsofcalcutta#aweinspiring

I was zero 👻🐶 and you were the pumpkin king 🎃 then we sacrificed our costumes by running around Disneyland amazed at the lightning 🌩 as the backdrop to the castle, getting drenched and possibly catching hypothermia by standing in line in pouring rain 🌧 to get on the very cold haunted mansion. Needless to say, it was another magically ✨ adventurous night at Mickey’s not so scary Halloween party 🐭🏰
The region of Gilgit-Baltistan is not only blessed with some spectacular natural scenery but some man-made wonders also add up to the glory of this part of Pakistan. One of the prominent names that come into the mind while talking about Hunza valley is the Baltit Fort. the fort is located in the heart of Hunza valley and Founded in the 8th CE. Its strategic, defensive location was highly significant. Rear side of the fort is covered by great snowcapped mountains.
In the past, the survival of the feudal regime of Hunza was ensured by the impressive fort, which overlooks Karimabad. The foundations of the fort date back to 700 years ago, with rebuilds and alterations over the centuries. In the 16th century the local prince married a princess from Baltistan who brought master Balti craftsmen to renovate the building as part of her dowry.
The Mirs of Hunza abandoned the fort in 1945, and moved to a new palace down the hill. The fort started to decay which caused concern that it might possibly fall into ruin. Following a survey by the Royal Geographical Society of London a restoration programme was initiated and supported by the Aga Khan Trust for Culture Historic Cities Support Programme. The programme was completed in 1996 and the fort was opened for public. For centuries, Baltit Fort remained home of the royal family of Hunza. Not only that, many festivities and important meetings were held inside specially built portions inside the fort. Even today, festivals like Ginani are celebrated in Baltit Fort.It is now being managed by the Baltit Heritage Trust. An estimated 15,000 people visit the Baltit Fort every year which includes locals, domestic and foreign visitors. 🏛❤
