Karnataka (Bijapur) - Untamed

    Newer Older

    Bijapur might not be as consensually beautiful as Hampi or Badami. An old muslim city lost in the Karnataka's Northeast, it looks at first like nothing but a dusty noisy ugly congregation of sad buildings, surrounded by the skeleton of a medieval wall. Nonetheless, further probing reveals something more about Bijapur. Under the cement of the modern walls lays - dormant - the remains of a glorious muslim town : crooked doors, wild sculptures, savage arabic calligraphies. Though harsh on the eye as first, untamed Bijapur is packed of hidden and raw beauties.

      Orange and blue are opposites and really make this photo explode with color contrast. Very nice.
