The Palace & Gardens of Versailles, Paris

View of the Garden
During my brief stay at Paris, I wanted to visit Versailles palace, I went there but could not visit the palace :( the queue was far too long,

However, I did manage to see the beautiful gardens around the Versailles palace, the landscaped and perfectly maintained gardens were amazingly beautiful and there were spectacular sculptures that added to the beauty of the garden.

The garden dates back to 1661 and took 40 years to complete. King Louis XIV assigned the task of designing and layout of  the garden to André Le Nôtre. The Versailles palace and garden happens to be a world heritage site.Some pictures from my trip.

Hi Ranjana,
You never knew how lucky you’re for being at the spell bounding ‘Versailles Palace’. Strolling around those panoramic statues and garden made us envy you!

Traveler is the only one who can find the secrets of beauty like that! And watching ‘Great white Pelican’ pecking its prey (‘Jamnagar: A paradise for bird watchers – part II) is something as majestic as hummocks of Siberia.
