In our earlier blog, we compiled a list of amazing places to revel in the beauty of sunset, and my, were they incredible or what! Today, we cherish these dazzling sunrises from around the world. Take a look:
Christ the Redeemer, Rio de Janerio
Did you know that you can see this massive 38-meter statue, located on a 710 meter mountain, from almost every part of Rio? Now imagine viewing this entire Brazilian city from the top of Christ the Redeemer, at sunrise!
Can you take your eyes off this glorious sunrise? Holding more than 2500 Buddhist temples, stupas and monasteries, Bagan, Myanmar’s ancient capital city and now a popular UNESCO site, is very justifiably on this list!
Golden Gate Bridge, California
San Francisco’s spectacular Golden Gate Bridge was once the world’s longest and tallest suspension bridge. At 227 meters, this iconic bridge is set against a stunning backdrop of the Pacific Ocean. Look at the above sunrise picture if you don’t believe us!
Machu Picchu, Peru
2,430 meters above the sea-level, in the middle of a tropical rain forest, lies one of UNESCO’s most beautiful world heritage sites and the prehistoric Inca Empire’s most amazing creation till date. You’ll really have to see Machu Picchu at dawn to comprehend the magic it holds over millions of historians and tourists alike.
Would you wake up at 5:30 in the morning to view this stupendous sight of Rome’s time-worn Colosseum? I certainly would!
Mecca, Saudi Arabia
Religion or no religion, the fact that the holy city of Mecca is a gorgeous place has no arguments. Mix that purity with a splendid sunrise and voila! You have your very own version of heaven on Earth!
Borobudur Temple, Indonesia
World’s largest Buddhist monument, the 1200-years-old Borobudur Temple is an architectural marvel that has survived the test of time as well as natural and human atrocities. Besides many other whys and wherefores, you simply HAVE to see the unearthly view the temple top gives you at daybreak.
Burj Khalifa, Dubai
Being an audience to this spectacular sunrise from the world’s tallest skyscraper is an undertaking all of us should fulfill at least once in our lifetime.
Statue of Liberty, New York
Sitting on the 12-acre Liberty Island in New York Harbour, this national monument is definitely a must-see for a hundred and one reasons, but to see it in the splendour of the gentle morning light is an overwhelming experience to say the least!
Easter Island, Chile
Easter Island’s silent moai statues have stood the test of time and are an evidence of the fiercely unique culture of the primitive Polynesian people. The above sunrise picture is a vivid proof of their creative brilliance.
