Pant museum at Kausani in Uttarakhand isn’t a touristy place as such. In my three visits to this place in the course of last few years, I have rarely seen any other tourist there. Despite, this place being in the heart of the Kausani town with just a few steps to walk upto the museum […]

Patal Bhuvaneshwar temple was in and out of our itinerary for the Bloggers Bus at various points.
