While many of these have been abandoned and are in want of some repair, with nature at times already taking over, some have been restored to something of their former glory. From the regal grandeur of Cambodia's Angkor temples and the ancient cities of Sri Lanka to China's terracotta warriors or India's Taj Mahal, these sights hold incredible religious and cultural value.

EVEN if you’ve done your research, seen the movie ‘City of Joy’ or know of Mother Teresa’s work; being in Kolkata defies description.

Indian fest hopes Rushdie attends, despite protest
January 18, 2012 - 0 Comments - Travel Wire Asia
