2)  Black Taj Mahal - A french explorer, Jean - Baptiste in his studies reportedly claimed that Shah Jahan wanted to built a second Taj Mahal of crystal Black colour mimicking the first.

However, Aurangzeb ( Son of shah jahan ) Prisoned him before he could act. Amazing isn't it?

About 19 kms away from the town of Chitrakoot (M.P.), there exists the 'Gupt Godavari' caves.

I've been there 3 years back and believe me, the place depicts mythological stories from its every nook and corner.

 

Quick facts :-

1) As the name suggests, the river Godavari flows in this cave with a very secretive passage.

2)When you enter, the water will be up to 2 inches and as you advance, the level of water rises up to 4 feet.

3)The amazing albeit shocking fact of this cave is that as you reach the end of this cave, you notice that the river flows to another cave and then disappears.

 

5. Taste of darkness -

There is a restaurant in Hyderabad, where you cannot see the food you eat but only get to taste or experience it. The restaurant shrouded in darkness provides the people the feel of the lives of the visually impaired.

 

Concept of Restaurant :

Taste of Darkness is a gastronomic experience you cannot replicate or even hope to experience again elsewhere.

Imagine...a proper, formal, sit-down dinner with 50 people, in a room that's bathed in complete darkness.

Everyday a surprise menu awaits you. Expect to be served  courteously by their well trained dining guides who serve you from their  selection of local and global cuisine while you experience the pleasure  of enjoying food using only the aroma and your taste buds as reference.

 

This is enough for this article.

We end this one here but don't worry we will be back once again with another list that will make you fall in love with our wonder country, India once again.
