Recent visit to Churu with fellow Travel-Writers was an exciting trip. During this stay we visited Prem Sarovar which is a beautiful water-body surrounded by beautiful landscapes. It was great to spend some time around Prem Sarovar and enjoyed our special lunch hosted by Malji Ka Kamara. This Photo Journey shares some of the photographs from Prem Sarovar in Churu region of Rajasthan.
Above photograph shows the whole gang waiting for lunch to be served in one of the chhattris around the water body, which is called as Prem Sarovar in Churu. Malji ka Kamara team had done some very good arrangements for this special lunch after a round of Ramgarh with lovely havelis, chhatris and fresco.
While compiling this Photo Journey, I tried to find more details about the place and found the National Geographic has written a beautiful article on Churu, which has wrong photograph of Prem Sarovar. The photograph shown in http://natgeotraveller.in/magazine/short-breaks/mansionsandmarkets.html is actually Sethani ka Johara and not Prem Sarovar. It was a big surprise to see wrong imagery used by National Geographic website, which is a very trusted portal to find right information about different destinations across the world.
After having scrumptious lunch at Prem Sarovar, all of us came out and had few walks around the place. Rohan & Harnoor were leaving us after the lunch, so everyone wanted to have a photo session at Prem Sarovar. As you move out of the Prem Sarovar boundary, there is a huge land with beautiful trees standing high against blue sky.
While everyone was busy clicking photographs of each other, I thought of going closer to these beautiful trees and click some photographs. Malji team had told us the name of these trees but I forgot. I will try to update the blog with name, as I get some specific details.
Like Sethani ka Johara, tourists love to come here during sunset time to enjoy colorful sky and it's reflection in water. On the way to Prem Sarovar, we came across and group of peacocks and we found that Prem Sarovar is usually surrounded by peacocks and especially during early evening when this place gets more sunlight as compared to the nearest village there. Deers are also found around Prem Sarovar in Churu.
I love shooting sun with star effect and Prem Sarovar at Churu was best place to try few shots like this. The clear sky during winters is very helpful to get it right without any extra lens-filter.
Nyda was going straight to Railway station from Prem Sarovar and hence everyone wanted to spend more time with her. She was also in a very good mood and we got a chance to listen to some stories & poems. She is a happy child, who was a great company throughout the Churu trip :)
Compare to Sethani Ka Johara, Prem Sarovar is father from the Churu town and hence less frequented by people visiting Churu. Sethani ka Johara is easily approachable but Prem Sarovar is definitely a good option for peace lovers and folks who want to explore some local wildlife.
