We have some of the highest mountain ranges that are covered in snow and we also have deserts where the heat is unbearable, not to forget that we also have the wettest place on earth. Housing people of different religions and faiths, India is home to en number of shrines that thousands flock to every day. iTripTo reader Ashwini Ajjappa who is mesmerized by India’s beauty, captured these shots on her camera and shared them with us. We showcase five photos from her collection that depict our country’s varied landscape and culture.
