The white monument that you see across River Yamuna is the sacred samadhi of Devraha Baba. It is part of the lesser known Vrindavan. Its acres of greens and peace are known to its seekers. I remember the full moon night of Sharad Purnima when I looked at these trees from across the river, I found them blooming with big, white flowers or so I thought at first glance. They were egrets, resting for the night! As I was camping in a tent here, I was lucky to catch them rise before the sun and take off, sweeping over the midnight-blue waters of Sri Yamuna.

Ayodhya in Uttar Pradesh (India, of course!) is the birthplace of Lord Rishabh Dev (Sri Adinath), the first Tirthankara, teacher of Jainism. He travelled and taught, and continues to inspire, though millenia may have passed since he left his body at Kailas Mansarovar. He was born much before Sri Ram of the Hindu tradition.
