Bhangarh, one of its Temples

The World > Asia > India

Many years ago the whole village disappeared overnight, They say you don't want to be here when the sun goes down, that the ghost of the villages still haunt this place. So what am I doing here so late as the sun is setting? Things did get spooky! Most of Bhangarh is in ruins. Crumbling temples, walls and pavilions standing against the silent wilderness of forested hills scream out about the town's ancient prosperity. The ruins of the arches and colonnades, built on various levels, suggest that it was once quite an elaborate complex.

Das Panorama wurde in India, Asia aufgenommen

Dies ist ein Überblick von Asia

Asia is the biggest continent on Earth, a darling little gem floating around in space.

Hm, what is Asia? Who's in on it?

China and India are safe bets for Asian nations. Korea, Japan, Thailand, you're fine.

Europe? No. Europe would sort of be on the "Asian continent" if not for those pesky Ural mountains dividing things up in the middle, and then also the whole lineage of kings and wealth and nations and the EU and all that "give me my respect" stuff.
Russia would probably be happiest as its own continent, so for now we'll leave it in "Eurasia" and just hope the natural gas supplies keep flowing.

Pakistan and Afghanistan are dang close to Asia, but politically they show up in "Middle East" news stories an awful lot. Verdict: Eurasia.

I guess we'll actually have to consider everything from Turkey on eastward to be "Eurasian", although the moniker seems overlappitory of the territory.

The Asian economy is now officially raging like a wild furnace of lava that consumes everything in its path. Japan has had the largest individual economy in Asia for decades, but it is forecast that both India and China will outstrip Japan within twenty years.

China is the largest holder of United States debt and is positioned to become the world's next superpower, provided that Godzilla doesn't return and decide to stomp everybody back into the Shang Dynasty.
