Fuxing Hao – The Chinese railway also ranks second
- Speed: 400 km/h
- Location: China
- Route: Beijing – Shanghai
- Number of seats: 1280
- Commencement of exploitation: August 15, 2016
Fuxing Hao – Chinese rail transport, the Fuxing Hao model, also ranks second. A high-speed train that connects important Chinese cities such as Beijing and Shanghai. The constructor and sole carrier are the state railways China Railway Bejiing Group. Multiple units are constantly being improved and modified. Therefore, in 2019, the train was expanded from eight carriages to 17. At present, they can carry over 1,280 passengers.
During construction, Chinese engineers created new ones technologies, which increase sound insulation and reduce vibrations. Although the train can reach a speed of 400 km / h, it was lowered to 350 km / h due to the speed limit. The aerodynamic body is made of an aluminum alloy. The train is even adapted to difficult conditions and temperatures. Which in some regions of China reach minus 40 degrees Celsius in winter.
The train is equipped with 2,500 sensors that help to steer the train automatically. Including window control, air conditioning or lighting.
Shinkansen – One of the oldest high-speed railway
- Speed: 350 km/h
- Location: Japan
- Route: 2,900 km in length – around 14% of the islands rail network
- Number of seats:
- Commencement of exploitation: October 1, 1964
Shinkansen – It is one of the oldest high-speed trains in the world. They were built after World War II, when the Japanese railway infrastructure was in a deplorable condition. Therefore, in the 1950s, a project was created to build separate railway lines, on the basis of which the two largest Japanese cities – Tokyo and Osaka were connected. The route was opened to the public in 1964 for the Tokyo Summer Olympics. Due to this event, 66 tunnels and 96 bridges had to be built.
Safety comes first
The construction was a great success among people, already in the three years after it was put into operation, the Shinkansen carried 100 million travelers. It currently consists of eight lines. Which for safety reasons are separated from the other tracks. Together, they are 2,900 km long and account for around 14% of the islands rail network. The 15-meter front is an unusual feature of the train. Which is to minimize aerodynamic noise and eliminate vibrations when the train passes through tunnels.
Getting on and off the train is organized in an interesting way. Reserved passengers line up in lanes other than those for unbooked travelers.
Ellora – religious complex – Largest temple of world
Ellora – religious complex – The largest temple of world. One of the largest monastic rock cave complexes in the world. It is located approximately 29 km southwest of Aurangabad, in Maharashtra, India. Due to its uniqueness, beauty and cultural value, it has been on the UNESCO World Heritage List since 1983.
34 temples :
17 – Ancient Hindu (dated to the 600-900 A.D.),
– Kailasa – Hindu temple, considered the most beautiful of all buildings in Ellora.
12 – Buddhist (dated to the 600-800 A.D.),
5 – Jain (dated to the 800-1000 A.D.).
Jainism arose in response to Hinduism and its caste system. Its main idea was non-violence and respect for all living things.
On the walls of Hindu, Buddhist and Jain temples there are frescoes depicting serpent creatures. They are much smaller than the people and the authorship of this place is questioned. There are theories that it is man-made. And that it was created by representatives of extraterrestrial civilization. Which used the special technologies from other worlds that cut stone like butter. It is estimated that today, with ten punching machines in operation, the construction of such a complex would require 200 days of uninterrupted excavation.
There are many different ventilation shafts in Ellora leading to underground and narrow corridors and under earth tunnels that cannot fit humans. There are hundreds of drilled holes in the floors.
