Moon over Bibi Ka Maqbara

Around sunset is the best time to visit Bibi ka Maqbara. The colours and the crowd are at their vivid best. Considered the Taj of Dakkhan, this relatively humble monument was built by Azam Shah (Aurangzeb’s son) in memory of his mother between 1651 and 1661 A.D.  The mausoleum draws its inspiration from the world famous Taj Mahal of Agra.

Rajasthan 07: The Umaid Bhawan Palace

Umaid Bhawan Palace is one of the most popular edifices of the Jodhpur city of Rajasthan. The Palace is by far the best example of Art Deco Architecture I have seen.

Rajasthan 04: Udaipur City Palace

Udaipur city palace is actually series of palaces packed in the city palace complex. They were built over a long period, from 1559 onwards, by 76 generations of Sisodia Rajputs or Suryavanshi Rajputs. I wanted to present the magnificence and hugeness of the palace to you in black and white. The black and white really accents the structural hugeness and also creates a great contrast against deep blue skies to bring forth the bright limestone structure.

I hope you enjoy the post.
