We invited readers to send in their favourite travel pic -- that one photograph that perfectly captures the beauty of a place they visited. In response, readers have sent in wonderful photographs from all across India. Here we feature some of the refreshing photographs readers sent in of India's mesmerising locales:

First up, newly-married Siva Kumar shares pictures of Manali where he went for his honeymoon. He writes, "One morning I saw this wonderful sight of the Manali hills covered with snow, with sun rays falling on them. It was simply superb."

Do you have a photograph that perfectly captures the beauty of a place -- of a breathtaking peak or a picture-perfect seashore? Share it with the world. Simply send in your photograph (original photos only) to travelpicsga@rediffmail.com (subject line: 'My travel pic'), along with your name, the name of the place, a short description of the photograph, when you visited and what you liked most about the place. We'll feature the best pics right here on rediff.com and in India Abroad.

Syed shares with us another picture from his Shimla trip. "This one is of the famous mall. Shimla is so famous that most of us must have been there at least once.
