Unique places of interest in India

Cherrapunji

From the series “The Most Extreme Settlements on the Planet”
In India, travelers will have an opportunity to visit a small town of Cherrapunji, which is considered the rainiest settlement in the world. It's raining here literally every day. On average, it's about 12 000 mm of rainfall per year. About 10 000 people constantly live in the town. Daily walks down the street with an umbrella or raincoat become a commonplace for them. The town has a large cement factory, and there are several industrial centers for the extraction of coal and limestone in the surrounding area.

Mahaparinirvana and Parinirvana Stupa Temple

From the series “The Surviving Artifacts of Buddhist Civilization”
