PLEASE, NO invitations or self promotions, THEY WILL BE DELETED. My photos are FREE to use, just give me credit and it would be nice if you let me know, thanks.

 

Looking down at the Cenotaph of Vir Singh Deo who ruled from 1605-1627 AD. This was built by Jujhar Singh in 1627-1628 AD.

 

Fifteen cenotaphs to the Bundela Kings and members of their clan are located on the southern bank of River Betwa. These include the chhatries of Madhukar Shah, Vir Singh Deo, Jashwant Singh, Udait Singh, Pahar Sing and others. Most of the cenotaphs are designed in Panchaytan style. They are constructed on an elevated square platform. The sanctum is square shaped and in the center. The upper portion has been made angular with arches. The peek of the sanctum, sanctorum is patterned in Nagar style of temple architecture.

    Looks like it might've been carved from big boulders right on the spot. In other words, no moving of rocks. What d'ya think? Fine composition, Dennis!
