The Diwan-i-Khas, or Hall of Private Audience, is a plain square building with four chhatris on the roof. However it is famous for its central pillar, which has a square base and an octagonal shaft, both carved with bands of geometric and floral designs, further its thirty-six serpentine brackets support a circular platform for Akbar, which is connected to each corner of the building on the first floor, by four stone walkways.

Zanskar is probably the most isolated valley in India and Phuktal is the remotest part of Zanskar.

 

This was the landscape en route Phuktal monastery.

The Phuktal monastery is the epitome of monks living high up in the mountains, detached from the rest of the world.

 

All of this made the trek to the Phuktal monastery an exciting adventure.

“I am following Nature without being able to grasp her...I perhaps owe having become a painter to flowers.”

(Claude Monet - French painter, initiator and leader of the Impressionist style, 1840-1926)

 

Last evening I was walking in the Lodhi Gardens in Delhi and I took this picture a few minutes before the big storm which has been refreshing the city all night long.

 

Lodhi Gardens is a park in Delhi, India.

It contains architectural works of the Lodhis, a pashtun Muslim dynasty which ruled much of Northern India during the 16th century.

The gardens are situated between Khan Market and Safdarjung's Tomb on Lodhi Road.

Over there there is a pond with lotus which reminded me the Nympheas by Claude Monet.

Water Lilies (or Nympheas) is a series of approximately 250 oil paintings by French Impressionist Claude Monet (1840-1926).

The paintings depict Monet's flower garden at Giverny and were the main focus of Monet's artistic production during the last thirty years of his life.

The Amarnath yatra was our introduction to the ways and lives of the sadhus.

 

Every once in a while, we would see the sadhus take a break. A break always involved a round of their favourite smoke. (No, we didn’t dare ask what exactly was in it!)

Agra (hindi: आगरा; urdu: آگرہ) es una ciudad situada a orillas del río Yamuna, en el estado de Uttar Pradesh, en la India. Fue la capital del Imperio mogol entre 1556 y 1658.

 

La ciudad fue fundada entre 1501 y 1504 por Sikandar Lodi, sultán de Delhi, que la convirtió en su capital. El primer emperador mogol, Babur, se refugió en esta ciudad después de luchar con Lodi en 1526. Akbar la convirtió en la capital oficial del imperio en 1556.

 

Entre mediados del siglo XVI a mediados del siglo XVII, durante los reinados de Akbar, Jahangir y Sha Jahan, la ciudad tuvo su máximo apogeo y esplendor. Sha Jahan ordenó construir el Taj Mahal en 1631, Más adelante la capital del imperio se trasladó a Delhi.

 

Tras la caída del Imperio mogol, los Jats en 1761, los rajputs de Gwalior en 1764, los Sindhia en 1784 y los británicos en 1803 residieron en la ciudad. Durante la revuelta de los cipayos de 1857 se desarrollaron diversas batallas sangrientas en el fuerte de Agra.

 

En la actualidad (2005) la ciudad recibe millones de visitantes cada año para visitar el mausoleo del Taj Mahal. Agra sufre una intensa contaminación atmosférica que está poniendo en serio peligro la conservación del patrimonio de la ciudad.
