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.  

Heart of the Action

There is an unmistakable energy about night markets of Charminar. While I was strolling around the streets to capture night shots my nose made me feel like i was in carnivores heaven, but ears quickly brought me back on earth. Street fashion, glitter, friendly people, noisy auto rickshaws… they are all in abundance here. This frame captures the distant Charminar pumping out the life into the streets.
