Around Agra

Down by the Yamuna

It looks like this guy won the pot, but he is actually holding up a tape casette. Ghat from Yamuna bank opposite the Taj Mahal, at dusk. Cattle drive, Indian style.

Fatehpur Sikri

Buland Gate, Gate of Victory, main gate of the mosque at Fahipur Sikri. Looking out through a carved stone screen. Carved stone screen. Arabic inscription. Tomb of Islamic saint Salim Chisti. Akbar's sleeping quarters. Diwan-i-Klas, building used for religious discussion between Akbar and his scholars. Sultana's palace. View from Akbar's sleeping quarters.  Panch Mahal on the left, Diwan-i-Klas in the center and  sultana's palace on the right. Stable, note rings for securing animals.  Not clear if they were uses for horses, elephants or both. Birbal's house. Carving like this is seen all over Fatehpur Sikri.
