Bibi ka Maqbara

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.

Local markets around Indian temples have always fascinated me. You never know what might spring up in front of you. We saw these bunch of boys carrying Dholaks while strolling around the markets of Alandi. I converted this photo into black and white as it brought life in the gaze of the little boy looking straight into the Camera.
