The day after our wonderful evening spent with the majestic Taj Mahal we headed to a few places around Agra, first being the Agra fort and then onto some of the previous kings palaces.
The artistry put into these monuments was breath taking, the time it took to hand carve all the red stone, the time it took to place all the jewels in the marble, unbelievable. Months on months, years on years. The picture of the men working in a line below are just a small bunch of workers carving flowers from jewels to glue into marble .. One flower the size of a 5 cent piece takes hours to carve out as its done petal by petal…
This week I thought I’d mainly let the pictures do the talking, I wish I could share more with you, it’s so hard selecting which ones to show, there is just so many I love!
Meanwhile, the faces I can see in picture numero 2, scare the bejeebus out of me! But, the details in the wall is amazing.
The last picture is of a typical Indian MILKMAN! A motorbike has NO limits.
Tell me, which is your favourite picture? What stories have you conjured up?
