Chauburji: A Monument That Withstood Time!!! by RiazSiddiki

Chauburji (what remains of it) stands aside the busiest road in Pakistan’s second most populous city Lahore…………….reminding us of the beautiful past………Built in 1646………..as a garden this structure is unique because of its minarets……….Unlike anywhere else, these minarets expand from the top.

Difficult to approach as a tourist location (because of haywire traffic) and clutter of city buildings…..hoardings…..shops…..traffic…….it was a challenge to shoot it in a way that somewhat showed its past glory……..I tried my bit……..and the wide angle helped……… ☺

Humayun Tomb India by sanaullahrajpoot

Humayun’s tomb is the tomb of the Mughal Emperor Humayun in Delhi, India. The tomb was commissioned by Humayun’s first wife Bega Begum in 1569-70, and designed by Mirak Mirza Ghiyas, a Persian architect chosen by Bega Begum.
Humayun died in 1556, and his widow Hamida Banu Begam, also known as Haji Begam, commenced the construction of his tomb in 1569, fourteen years after his death. It is the first distinct example of proper Mughal style, which was inspired by Persian architecture. It is well known that Humayun picked up the principles of Persian architecture during his exile, and he himself is likely to have planned the tomb, although there is no record to that effect. The tomb was constructed at a cost of 15 lakh rupees (1.5 million).

“We can see the Divine in each speck of dust, but that doesn’t stop us from wiping it away with a wet sponge. The Divine doesn’t disappear; it’s transformed into the clean surface.” – Paulo Coelho

This is an image of Faisal mosque in Islamabad, Pakistan taken during sunset. I was very fortunate and Blessed to be present there at a time when the sun’s rays were being partially covered with the clouds behind it as it really blended well with the symmetrical reflection of the mosque.

I believe its one of my finest images of this mosque and I hope you all enjoy it too! God Bless!
