13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Tibetan prayer carved on rock

A visit to Ladakh district in India will rejuvenate all your senses. I had an awesome experience interacting with people and trying their cuisine. Monasteries in Ladakh are humongous and built over mountains. Along the way to the top of the mountain, you'll find many carved rocks. The color of this particular rock and design of the text carved on it caught my eye. Only this rock was exposed to direct sunlight and all the others rocks around it lay it shade. So, the aura of this rock is what made me click it.
