Taking a wild guess on pic#35= Somewhere in Goa??

Another guess on pic# 36= Is it river Sutlej at the Bhakra Nangal Dam??

PIC#37

Hint: One of the capital cities in the country!!!

Nope, Its not in the east, nor in the south. Another hint: The state is not known for its palaces at all.

Dont know if this photo will provide much of a hint. Neverthless I will post it and then lets see. The river flowing alongside is more of a seasonal nullah than a proper river

I was guessing at the River Ravi, somewhere near Dalhousie, but then, as you say, this is the Beas. The waters of both these rivers have that typical ultramarine blue colour that I haven't seen in any of the other Himalayan rivers.
