Quantcast

Today we are stepping a bit away from our traditional realms and moving across to the ############. A often visited site, but will surely be an opener for all, atleast it was for me. Keeping the suspense up, let me present some pictures and see if you can guess the location.

Presenting the pillared corridors - a sculptural riddle.

The pillared corridor is simply spectacular, the columns arranged in a mesmerising geometry. Watch closely for signs that may help you identify the location !

இடம் :தில்லியில் உள்ள பழங்கால இந்து கோயிலொன்றை ஆக்கிரமித்து கட்டப்பட்ட “குதுப் மினார்”.

இத்தூண்கள் மினாரைச் சுற்றி அழகிய வேலைப்பாடுகளோடு இருந்தாலும், பெரும்பாலானவை சிதைக்கப்பட்ட சிற்பங்களோடு இருப்பது மனதுக்கு மிகவும் வேதனை அளித்தது.

It’s become Islamic, but. . .
I give up. I’ll be really embarrassed if I’ve been there

Yes Vijay… from all the contents… though I initially did not identify the location… my memory came back running. for I had seen the superimposing of the Islamic style of architecture over what clearly seem the pre-existing Hindu structures in the Qutub complex.
