Help (FAQ) - Frequently Asked Questions

Namaskar! 🙏
Welcome to our helpdesk. Here are some help articles and frequently asked questions about this website.

What is Trayaan?

Trayaan is essentially our travel blog, a collection of our travel stories with details and useful information about the places and destinations we've been to. In addition to that, we also provide you with handy maps, tips and other details to help you visit that place.

We also give you useful travel tips based on our own travel experiences. We also blog about all things travel and photography in our perspectives and photography sections.

How can I find information about places and destinations?

Typically, the information about any place or destination is included in our travel stories. You can use the Jump Links in the travel story posts or articles to navigate within that post or article.

Travel stories, typically the ones on a place or a destination, will also contain place details and information such as transportation, food, accommodations, maps, tips for travellers, and best times to visit the place, towards the end of such posts or articles.

Visit the Travel Stories section, or the Places and Destinations section, or simply make a search using the search bar on Trayaan, to read more about the place or destination you wish to know more about.

Whatever you find here right now is not something exhaustive. We regularly add new travel stories, destinations, tips, and more. So, bookmark and keep visiting!

How do I use the Maps?

In our travel articles, we usually include a helpful map for your convenience. Currently, all maps shown on our site use the Google Maps service.

Example Map
Example of a typical map showing the View Details, View Larger Map, and zoom in and out buttons.

You may view more details on the marked places by clicking on the View Details button (the icon at the top-left corner of the map). You can view more details by Zooming in and out using the + and - buttons on the map.

You may choose to open them in a new window by clicking on the View Larger Map button (the icon at the top-right corner of the map), and you may add them to your maps if you're logged into your Google account.

You may also star the map (click on the little star next to the map's title) to view it on Google Maps.

If you have the Google Maps app installed on your smartphone, then clicking the View larger map option may open the map in your app itself (in case it is chosen as the default application. Otherwise, it may open in your mobile browser itself).

You may save the maps for later reference by using the app's Offline features by downloading the areas and include it in your saved offline locations to access it later during your trip. View the Google Maps Help for more details.

How to use Dark Mode feature?

Well, you don't have to do much. Trayaan will automatically detect your web browser's or your device's dark mode preference. Easy-peasy!

Difference between regular (light) mode and Dark mode. (Examples).

Note: This feature works for browsers or devices that support a dark mode. The method to enable/disable dark mode in your web browser may be different for different devices. Typically, it should follow your device's mode (light or dark) by default, unless you've chosen to override it in your browser's settings. Make sure that you have the latest version of your web browser installed on your device and check your browser's help page to know how to set or unset a dark mode.

How to share an article?

To help you share an article to your social media app or service, we provide some handy share buttons which you can see while you're on any article on Trayaan.

Typically you'll see a few sharing options to some social media services and other options such as email, for example. To see even more sharing options, just click on the share button alongside.

If you're viewing Trayaan on a mobile device then in these more sharing options you'll also see a Share to app button which you can tap on for options to share it to an app or service on your mobile device.

No, they're not. We do not get paid for any mentions or reviews of anything, whether it's a hotel, a device, travel gear, tools, a place, a destination or whatever else. We don't do paid or sponsored articles. All the mentions and reviews are purely based on our travel experiences. More >
