photoblog image Sheesh Mahal

Sheesh Mahal

Meaning Glass Palace.
This palace has large mirrors, along with the figures of religious deities imposed over the mirror work. For this reason, it was also used as a temple.

 

The lighting situation was quite challenging, at squeezing off the camera at what I could get, there was still considerable noise. But I thought the details inside were still worth presenting. I should also point out the bluish tinge on the left flank of the central door was from a dissimilar light source.

Merci et bonne journée

Do you know the age of this amazing glass palace, Ayush?
Ayush Basu: The fort in general was built in the late fifteenth century, Beverley - so this palace would be somewhere in that period.
Sheer opulence!
Ayush Basu: You are very right with that, LC.
However it does not altogether an esoteric presence. smile
