Visit to Cathédrale Notre Dame de Paris

Since I saw the movie 'Hunchback of Notre Dame' in my childhood, I always wanted to see the actual Cathédrale Notre Dame de Paris if I ever visited Paris. And when I did last year September, I made it a point not to miss it in my list of Must See places in Paris. 

Here are some of the photos I took while visiting the Cathédrale Notre Dame de Paris or when passing by it during the Paris night-boat ride. Although there was no Hunchback or beautiful Esmeralda, I could imagine both these characters around - you would too if you happen to visit Cathédrale Notre Dame de Paris.

As we passed by the Cathédrale Notre Dame, I hurriedly took a few shots - but that was not to be the end. I made it a point that before leaving Paris, I get to see it right there in front of me. And so did I on the last day in Paris, while saying goodbye to this city of lovers and love.

On my last day in Paris - I drove to the Cathédrale Notre Dame de Paris, which was already full of tourists thronging the place - perhaps many like I recalling the movie and comparing it to our memories.
