Jama Masjid

Jama Masjid in the evening.

The following series encloses 15 photographs of Masjid-i Jahān-Numā meaning World-reflecting Mosque situated in Old Delhi, India. Built in mid 1600AD by Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan, its the largest mosque in India. The monument, the prime shooting location of many Bollywood movies can hold 25,000 people during prayer times. It is also close to a major ancient Indian market known as ‘Meena Bazaar’ and one of the oldest and most famous eat streets in India, the ‘Chandni Chowk’. From the Jama Masjid, one can see the ‘Red Fort’ at a distance, home to some of the most powerful Mughal Emperors of all times. Do leave your feedback if you like the series.

Sky High

Recently Conde Nast Traveler published a post featuring images from places high up. So I thought why not have a similar post even on this blog.

Starting with an image of Paris from the top of Eiffel Tower. With the Sacre Coeur in view.

DSC_0610Next we look onto the city of Prague, from the Prague castle situated strategically on a hilltop making it tough for the ancient man as well as the modern man with high blood cholesterol to climb.

DSC_0246Lets get out of Europe and look at Dubai

DSC_0135Lets look down upon one of the Indian cities, the city of Kolkata.

DSC_0010Back to Europe, to Italy specifically, looking at the red housetops of Venice.

DSC_0546Next we look down upon Florence, the city after which Florence Nightingale was named. The view is secured after climbing over 400 treacherous steps through narrow pathways and dark haunting alleys all built within the Florence Duomo.

DSC_0004 Finally we look over the city of Rome, which incidentally was not built in a day, from the top of the St Peter’s Basilica, Vatican City.
