What a splendid entrance it is, Ayush!
Ayush Basu: I quite liked it myself, Ray. Especially with the cosmetic embellishments.
Très belle entrée. C'est l'heure de la pause.
Ayush Basu: I got the feeling that there is not a huge requirement for security personnel, beyond the request to take photos for tourists, Martine.

i cannot even imagine a structure so old

very ornate
Ayush Basu: I hope it lasts some more, Sherri. It seemed to be in not too bad condition.

A relaxing moment in a busy day?
Ayush Basu: In there, I got the feeling that there is not a huge requirement for security personnel, beyond the request to take photos for tourists, Chris.

I like the intricate carvings on the stonework Ayush. Good to see that it also affords sitting places for the security guards.
Ayush Basu: Forethought of the builders centuries ago? tongue I imagine there were not too many tourists at that time of the day, Chad.
It looks inviting, the security detail look very relaxed

Nice capture...
Ayush Basu: Thank you, Larry.
I wonder how far back the wall paintings date to.
Ayush Basu: I cannot answer that, Brian, but I would guess it has been restored.
A fine ornate building Ayush
Ayush Basu: They sure gave some employment to the artisans of that time, Bill.
This is a wonderful capture, Ayush!
Ayush Basu: I am pleased you liked the contribution of the artisans of that time, Elizabeth.

I like those charging elephants - whether it is for hunt or war.
Ayush Basu: I imagine the artist wanted to give a more vigorous effect to his mural, Louis.
Wow, such a stunning castle!
Are you still in India or Singapore?
Ayush Basu: I am at the moment in the Netherlands.
A beautiful monument, the three seated guardians give an anachronistic appearance to the image. A beautiful shot.
Ayush Basu: I see what you mean, Claudio. I think this place does not attract much "trouble" or perhaps this was during a lull in the tourist crowd smile
