Photos taken in India in 2013

The highlight if this trip was the Maha Kumba Mela Hindu Festival, the largest human gathering on earth, which happens once every 12 years.­

Other regions visited include the springs of the Ganges river, Varanasi, the Konark sun temple.­

See also my photos of Nepal that I took the same year.­

Photos of terrace farming in Asia (Vietnam, India, Philippines, Indonesia).­

Most of those terraced fields are rice paddy fields.­
