Glimpse of Beautiful And Historical Village Of Saidpur And Little Sadness


I am so happy that our days are calming down slowly.Temperature has dropped from forty plus and swinging around 30 c what a relief!

These are the days when i look at sun and smile joyously and gratefully for all his kind warmth  that reminds  of mom's lap sometimes :) Yes part of me is still a daughter that miss her mother. It is said that God send mothers so he can show how much he loves us .The part of love that we get from our mothers is tiny part of love that Lord has for his man ! And what are we doing in return ? instead of loving him back we are slipping away from him because we think we know this world and life so much , so we have right to disgrace all his love offered to us in form of  each single thing we have form toe to top. that saddens me really ! It seems that we are denying  biggest reality of our existence by closing eyes .This is not good indeed!  
We are completely back to our routine now .One thing that bothers only is that my youngest son is attending school only three days of the week because governments has not allowed the full attendance at once yet .I am trying to support him during home studies .

My yard garden  has delight for soul as our climber is over loading with pretty pink blooms :) a very absorbing color that fills my heart with happiness each time i look at it :) see below 


last day i asked my younger son to take photos of these flowers for me as his camera is better than mine 

gul e dopaher or Noon flower shine like tiny radiant  lanterns 

during my little yoga session they give me divine company 

this year we could grow least color ,white ,brown and purple ,they create magic when smile altogether 






Today i am sharing glimpse  of our visit to Saidpur village in Islamabad. These were our early days and weather was hot and humid before long rain spell.It was still lockdown .We were wondering about place we wanted to visit one day . My younger son  strolled review of other people on google and decided to visit Saidpur village.It was our first time visit there .We waited for  time before evening to avoid heat and sun. I have shared link below so you can learn about the place which holds historic value and majestic beauty ,if you are interested . Village was founded in 1530 ad ,more 
content and views below 
 Saidpur village and Link to video

We arrived there around 5pm ,at very first eye i knew this was beautiful ,serene and worth exploring village though i was sad that as sun was about to set so it will be impossible to explore whole village .specially the hills that surround this village like a loving mother were so compelling ,while wandering below i saw many people ,families particularly coming down from the hills to exiting point despite of lockdown and heat 


   Some restaurants  were open but had restrictions though most were closed ,we had no  appetite for food but desire for seeing the beauty of place 


during walk  we were told by few locals that Clay Train room is available if we are interested ,we had no idea about it so followed  one of the informer kid ,he led us to small ancient looking room and asked us to wait ,he fled  into the very narrow street ,after few minutes a middle aged lady appeared with friendly smile and unlocked the room , we steeped down as room was in the basement ,according to the owner lady room and all pottery  was done by her father in law and her husband who continued to create things to tribute his father ,A Clay train made by his father and many other things were displayed for visitors  in the room ,later i found out that there is lot about the village and pottery room specially clay train on youtube 








i  asked the lady that why didn't they hand over the Clay train to Islamabad national  museum so more people can know about the magnificent creation by her family but she could not give any comprehensible answer ,we left by thanking her and giving few hundred rupees as tribute to their contribution to national heritage 




we moved towards hindo and sikh temple situated there and well preserved by authorities then but both were closed due to lockdown ,that was such a disappointment  


                                           sikh temple ,we could look at it from far only 


we could visit only one restaurant that was at the face of the village near entrance point ,it was closed though like other families we found it suitable for taking some pictures 





this was first image that i took actually after arrival ,after little walk you will find the restaurant (above) on left ,

We could see the face of this beautiful village because  it was getting dark and hills were not safe to visit due to  probability of wild life 

there . I will definitely visit it once again  during our next trip to Islamabad hopefully and will explore all the charm that historical village offers ,images and videos on youtube provokes me to do it asap :)

Thank you precious friends for all your kind words and visits ,they strengthen me and make me keep sharing my world and heart with all of you !
I hope and pray that each  of you is  experiencing the grace of life and beauty of routine :)
Stay blessed friends with faith In goodness and Lord as it brings forth best from you i believe !
Take care God Bless you All!

  3. I am glad to hear that the weather is moderating for you. The heat that you contend with sounds terrible.

    Saidpur Village looks to be such an interesting place. That clay train looks very neat.

    Have a great day!

  4. the clay train is interesting, I think you are right to suggest a museum. I like looking at your courtyard with the beautiful pink flowers, Baili, it's peaceful and calming. I haven't' seen flowers like yours here in the UK or on my travels either which makes them even more interesting. Yoga outdoors must be very refreshing, I haven't tried yoga (I am not very bendy!)

  10. The human race is really messing this world up. It's hard to understand how people can destroy the place they live.

  12. Your courtyard is beautiful, Baili, with your pretty flowers and pink vine. I have never seen one like it. Your visit to Saidpur looks lovely with all the beautiful flowers, the temple and the mountains in the background. The clay train shows such amazing craftsmanship. Hopefully, those of us who appreciate and love this world will make up for the disrespect of the ungrateful. Sending you blessings xx Karen

  16. I miss my mother so much too, Baili. I was so blessed to have had her in my life.

    Said our looks like a lovely village, a great place to stroll around taking in the atmosphere. The clay train is special. Such a great job done to make it.

    Children here are back in school full time now. I hope you son gets to full time soon.

  17. Beautiful! Lovely pink flowers. Pink flowers are my favorites. I like all flowers but pink ones are really a favorite color. Thanks for the lovely photos. I find a bit hard to blog now a days so I have not been posting but perhaps someday I will be back. Take care and may God bless you also.

  18. Wow, 40 degrees and 30 is a relief, what a heat😊 I love what you said about mothers, as you know I am a mother and me son 2nd birthday is coming up, so these words really brought tears to my eyes,so beautiful and true! I love these flowers and all your photos, I also enjoy yoga, it calms me down. Have a lovely day!

  19. While your temperatures have been cooling down, Baili, ours were warmer and more like summer than fall. We were back to wearing shorts and short sleeves the past week instead of jeans and long sleeves. There are still some blooms around, but fall colors on the trees are just beginning in our area, although there is more color in colder areas. Your flowers are lovely and it must be wonderful to enjoy them while you do your yoga (I would be slow as well and not bendable at all). Thanks for showing the temples and it was a pity that they were closed for a visit inside. But that clay train was truly amazing to have been able to see.

  21. Uma reportagem fotográfica lindíssima. Gostei muito das flores. Gostei da analogia que fez do calor do sol com o colo da mãe...
    Uma boa semana com muita saúde.
    Um beijo.

  23. Fiquei fascinado com a beleza das flores que apresenta nas fotos. Estou certo que algumas dessas trepadeiras não existem na flora portuguesa.
    Abraço.

  24. Your flowers are beautiful and the clay train is fascinating.

    It is interesting to read about your restaurant experiences. Ours are currently open but due to there being less table due to distancing guidelines it is often difficult to get in unless you have booked in advance.

    Booking in advance is also required for many (but not all) visitor attractions.

  25. I always enjoy your garden which you are so kind to share with us, Baili. Saidpur village is beautiful. And how cool it is that you saw the clay train room, thanks to the locals. I would find such a place fascinating. Take care, my friend!

  26. A part of me is still a daughter who misses her mother too, Baili. They are always with us, and we remember them with fondness and all they did for us. What a pleasant time you had in the village. I would have loved to seen that clay train room, as my grandfather worked on the railroad. Thank you for always sending lovely and sweet thoughts of blessings at the end of your posts for your dear readers, Baili. I appreciate that so much.
