“The City of Brotherly Love” Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Bonjour beautiful world!

In the beginning of November we visited Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. “The City of Brotherly Love”, a nickname from the literal meaning of the city’s name in Greek and also called as “The Birthplace of America” derived from Philadelphia’s role in the American Revolution and location of the signing of the Declaration of Independence, Philadelphia or Philly 🙂 touched my heart! The city is amazing! I am putting some links bellow with more information about Philadelphia history and so on.

Visiting the spectacular “BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir”, Robbinsville – USA

Bonjour beautiful people! We are back home in Luxembourg after some lovely days visiting the USA. As we did a stopover in Robbinsville, New Jersey, we took the opportunity to visit the impressive temple “The BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir“. Considered one of the largest Hindu temples in the world, it is made entirely of Carrara marble imported from Italy to Rajasthan, India, where hundreds of artisans began hand-carving the stones. The complex is free and open to the public. We enjoyed so much this visit, the amazing architecture, the wonderful energy and kind people that we met there. One person there said to me “this place is divine”, and I agree. 🙂 Hope you enjoy the tour! I am putting some information and links below. Hugs and lights BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir
