When History Whispers

"The marble keeps merely a cold and sad memory of a man who would else be forgotten. No man who needs a monument ever ought to have one. "
-Nathaniel Hawthorne

I wont describe much .These snaps of monuments are sample of Indian History ,Her Stunning beautiful Culture .....

Astonishing work of architect (God At Work!!!) in "Qutub Minar"

Shah-jahan used to watch his creation from this place of "Agra fort " when he was captivated by his own son !!!

I've never been there to see them, so what a beautiful thing you have done to share the pictures on your blog. Architecture amazes me, the detail is incredible!

Wow, I need to go see the Taj again sometime. I'm not a big fan of all Indian architecture but the Taj is definitely something. I last saw it when I was 4!
