Travel Pages # Chesapeake Bay Bridge, Maryland

The Chesapeake Bay Bridge is commonly known as Bay Bridge/America’s Scariest Bridge/Maryland Bay Bridge. It is the major dual-span five-lane bridge(two bridges running parallel to each other with eastbound 2 lanes and westbound 3 lanes) and was first opened in 1952. This scariest bridge runs 4.3-miles long and in some areas 200ft high. It is an awesome experience and view from the bridge is breathtaking.

Travel Pages # Temples of India – Belur

Ancient Indian temples are architectural marvels. There is so much history, story, and architecture behind every ancient Indian temple.

Architecture starts when you carefully put two bricks together. There it begins.
