Iguaçu Falls, Brazil/ Argentina

Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Iguaçu Falls present a majestic bevy of 275 individual waterfalls on the Iguaçu and Paraná rivers in southern Brazil. Located along the border between Argentina and Brazil, the falls are accessible from the town of Puerto Iguazú in Argentina and Foz do Iguaçu in Brazil, with either side offering a unique experience of the Promised Land.

The name Iguaçu is derived from a Guaraní word meaning ‘great water’. Amidst the surreal constellation of waterfalls, the horseshoe-shaped ‘Devil’s Throat’ is the largest and the most spectacular. The water cascading down the 80-metre high fall creates a misty cover and a mystic aura of sorts before disappearing into nothingness. The jet boat safari takes you right through the falls and is one of the most exhilarating experiences you will ever have.

Rani ki Vav, Patan, Gujarat

An 11th century architectural marvel, Rani ki Vav (Queen’s Stepwell) is a UNESCO World Heritage Site commissioned by Rani Udaymati in memory of her husband King Bhima 1 of the Solanki dynasty. Situated on the banks of Saraswati river in Patan district in northern Gujarat, the Māru-Gurjara style stepwell is an exquisite example of craftsmanship displayed in numerous other historical structures of that era. The most famous representative of this style of architecture is The Sun Temple at Modhera, Gujarat.

Replete with figurative imagery and unmatched detailing, each level of the seven-story stepwell holds a unique story in its embrace. Owing to its unique structure as an inverted temple and the underlying message of water conservation, Reserve Bank of India has chosen Rani ki Vav as the principle image on the new 100-rupee Indian currency note.
