Meghalaya Abode of Clouds II

Category: Sense of Place


Photo and caption by Anirudha Chakraborty

In Sanskrit Meghalaya means Abode of Clouds. Meghalaya is a state in Northeast India. This cemetary was sitting atop a solitary hill overlooking a range of hills. The clouds kept coming in and out and it was drizzling all day. I was struck by the solitary beauty of this place.

Location: Meghalaya, Northeast India
