Profile Clyde

I always had a passion for historical, cultural and natural heritage sites around the world. The UNESCO world heritage list contains not only the most iconic heritage sites but also other outstanding sites which I surely wouldn't have visited were it not for their inscription. Some of these off the beaten track sites are indeed my favourite.

Sanchi Clyde

I visited this WHS in November 2016. It is an hour away from Bhopal and two hours away from Bhimbetka.

The Great Stupa is the oldest stone structure in India and the main highlight of this stupa as well as of Stupa 3 are the elaborately carved toranas or ornamental gateways.

They are truly of OUV and almost in pristine condition. There are also other minor remains of pillars, temples and unfinished stupas as well as an informative museum down hill from the stupas so allow at least 3 hours to visit thoroughly.

Rock Shelters of Bhimbetka Clyde

I visited this WHS in November 2016. After a long drive from Aurangabad we decided to stop at a convenient village on the way to Bhopal so as to visit the Rock Shelters first thing in the morning on our way to Bhopal (instead of going to and fro from Bhopal).

600 metres above sea level and 100 metres above the surrounding valley lie the craggy sandstone formations of Bhimbetka amidst the Ratapani Wildlife Sanctuary.

Ajanta Caves Clyde

I visited this WHS in November 2016. Having already visited Badami Caves, Elephanta Caves and Ellora Caves, I thought Ajanta Caves were going to be somewhat of an overkill but I was so wrong.

What Ajanta lacked in terms of architecture and carvings/sculptures it made up for with outstanding paintings. A flashlight is a must to be able to appreciate the beautiful paintings especially in Caves 1 and 2.

Ellora Caves Clyde

I visited this WHS in November 2016. I had already marked it as a top WHS and it surely didn't disappoint. Even though there is another great WHS relatively nearby (Ajanta Caves), I think both deserve a lengthy visit (if not a revisit) for different reasons.

Ellora Caves is made up of 34 caves from 3 different religions and the majority of the caves have beautiful carvings and/or sculptures apart from the architectural genius involved.

Elephanta Caves Clyde

I visited this WHS in November 2016. I had an early morning flight from Goa to Mumbai and so I opted to beat the rush hour morning traffic and head straight to the Gateway of India and the Taj Palace & Tower.

I bought my tickets for the "luxury" ferry to Elephanta Island which is less crowded and in a slightly better state than the "normal" ferry. I also opted to pay the extra 10 rupees to stay on the upper deck which is even less crowded and great for taking photos of the Gateway of India.
