cover from India

On Thursday I got two covers including one from India.

Mahatma Gandhi (from set of five) (issued 01-03-2009)
Personalities (two from set of eighteen) (issued 23-01-2016)
Zoological Survey of India (from set of two) (issued 03-12-2015)

Inside were three Indian postcards.

The first one shows the Mount Khangchendzonga in the Indian State of Sikkim. Mount Khangchendzonga is the third highest mountain on Earth. It is associated with many mythological stories. In 1977 the Khangchendzonga National Park was established, which today covers 25% of Sikkim. Last month the Khangchendzonga National Park was added to the UNESCO World Heritage List.

This stamp is affixed to the card:
Tadoba-Andhari National Park (from set of two) (issued 29-07-2016)

The second one shows a group of Himalayan Tahrs in the Great Himalayan National Park. The Great Himalayan National Park was established in 1984. It is characterised by high alpine peaks, alpine meadows and riverine forests. As part of the Himalaya biodiversity hotspot it is home to more than 375 species of animals. Since 2014 is the Great Himalayan National Park Conservation Area on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

The last one shows the giant open-air rock relief Descent of the Ganges in Mahabalipuram. Mahabalipuram was a port city founded by the Pallava Kings. Since 1984 is the Group of Monuments at Mahabalipuram on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

Thank You very much Prashanth!
