Veer Narayan Singh was a landlord from Sonakhan, Chhattisgarh. The British arrested him in 1856 for looting a trader's grain stocks and distributing it amongst the poor in a severe famine year. In 1857 when the flame of revolution was ignited in the country, it lit sparks in the forest-region of Chhattisgarh and the people unanimously elected the imprisoned Narayan Singh as their leader. With the help of soldiers and the public, Narayan Singh escaped from the jail in August, 1857 and reached Sonakhan. He organised his trusted followers and had an encounter with the British army near Sonakhan. He was moved by the atrocities and the acts of devastation and destruction of the British. He surrendered himself to the British army to protect the lives of the people. Narayan Singh was charged with treason and sentenced to death. He was publicly executed on 10th December, 1857. He sacrificed his life willingly for the country . .

white marble tomb built in 1631 - 48 in Agra, seat of the Mughal Empire, by Shah Jehan for his wife, Arjuman Banu Begum, the monument sums up many of the formal themes that have played through Islamic architecture. Its refined elegance is a conspicuous contrast both to the Hindu architecture of pre-Islamic India, with its thick walls, corbelled arches and heavy lintels, and to the Indo-Islamic styles, in which Hindu elements are combined with an eclecticassortment of motifs from Persian and Turkish sources."______ Marvin Trachtenberg and Isabelle Hyman Architecture: from Prehistory to Post-Modernism. p223 The Taj Mahal is considered the finest example of Mughal architecture, a style that combines elements from Persian, Indian, and Islamic architectural styles. In 1983, the Taj Mahal became a UNESCO World Heritage Site and was cited as "the jewel of Muslim art in India and one of the universally admired masterpieces of the world's heritage." The Taj! An awe-inspiring poetry in marble stands high and serene by the banks of the River Yamuna is an inspiring result of the application of architectural and scientific research. The tomb laid out in rectangular shape can be approached through an immense gateway with huge arch and alcoves strewn on either side that stands tall and erect, as though guarding something precious. Three other smaller gateways follow the red sandstone towers topped with domes in white marble together make a pretty picture. The Taj is an experience of its own kind, while on the one hand its magnanimity is so sublime, so on the other the exquisite inlay work and detailed craftsmanship together with the calligraphy is simply amazing. The combination simply leaves one absolutely mesmerized. The sheer splendour of the mausoleum is consummate, and the vastness is simply monuments #aalok #whykerala #whymalabar #tajmahal #tajmahalgallery #india #travelislife #travelindia #travel #traveler #agrafort #Aaloktravels #travelpassion #history #historymoments #historychannel

Kamakhya, the temple of bleeding goddess. ________ Contrary to the shaming treatment that menstruation gets elsewhere in India, at the Kamakhya Temple, it is revered as the ability of a woman to conceive. ______ Located on the Nilachal hill in the capital city of Guwahati, the deity of the temple, Kamakhya Devi is revered as the ‘Bleeding Goddess’. It is believed that the ‘Garvagriha‘ or the sanctum sanctorum of the temple houses the mythical womb and vagina of the Hindu goddess Shakti. Curiously enough, every year during the month of Ashaad (June), the Brahmaputra river near Kamakhya turns red. It is believed that the goddess ‘menstruates’ during this period. Considering this to be a woman’s power to give birth, the deity and temple of Kamakhya is a celebration of this ‘shakti’ within every woman. ... In a country that continues its archaic attitude towards menstruation as unholy and gruesome, it is important for each one of us to know the progressive approach that the Kamakhya temple displays—of celebrating womanhood. While there is no image of Shakti in the temple complex, it is Yoni or the female genitalia of the goddess located in the corner of the cave in the temple that is the object of reverence. _______ #historyofindia #historychannel   #historyinpictures #historical   #assamdiaries   #guwahati #assam #incredibleindia #travelblogger   #traveldiscovery #travelholic   #travelphotography   #travelstory #traveltagged   #travelexperience   #travelguide   #travelgram #trip   #discover_earth   #discover_travel   #discover_india #photographers_of_india #agameoftones   #tourandtravel #folktravel   #lonelyplanetindia #wordgasm

‪12/10/1690 — The Dough 💵‬ ‪.‬ ‪So, a colonial war just kicked off in your back yard and you’re hilariously in debt from of it.‬ ‪.‬ ‪What do you do? How bout issue the first paper money in Western civilization? 🌎‬ ‪.‬ ‪Why? Well, that’s exactly what the General Court of the Colony did today in 1690.‬ ‪.‬ ‪Now, remember that this is the era of European powers shoving each other in the face while shouting, “No, *I* saw North America first!” ⚔️ This brings us to King William’s War, the first of 6️⃣ shit-show conflicts between France 🇫🇷 & England 🇬🇧.‬ ‪.‬ ‪In April 1690, a guy named William Phips (who would later, as the colony’s royal governor, set up and shut down the Salem Witch Trials 🧙🏽‍♀️) and 2,000 men were commissioned to sail north and take over Quebec. Likely having been distracted by the lively local hockey 🏒 and delectable poutine 🥔🧀, Phips’ troops got beat. Bad. So, they set sail back to Boston.‬ ‪.‬ ‪Problem time 🕰! Even though they got their asses handed to them, Phips’ men demanded payment in full 💸, which the General Assembly could no longer guarantee because... they’d just gotten their asses handed to them. They were supposed to take their own cuts from Quebec; not expect it from Boston 🤦🏻‍♂️‬ ‪.‬ ‪This is why you only hire contractors based on referrals, people! 🧰‬ ‪.‬ ‪Knowing that they would a) never get the bread from Mother England for a battle they’d flippin’ lost 👎 and b) probably get their heads cut off over a special tax to pay for this crap 🔪, the GC voted to write Phips and his troops promissory notes for £7,000 that they could later turn into the treasury for more traditional gold, silver or copper 💰↔️🧾‬ ‪.‬ ‪This was a huge moment for the western hemisphere because the weight of those £7,000 came from the government rather than a person 🏛. To clarify, China had used this as a common practice for centuries, as had Italian city-states. ‬ ‪.‬ ‪But the assumption that western colonial governments couldn’t pay NOW and that it’d be okay as long as all 2,000 of the guys didn’t try to cash in their notes AT ONCE? . Boston as cream pie #foolproofsystem

Casa Museo Leon (Lev) Trotsky. A casa museu Leon Trotsky é parte de uma viva e triste lembrança de um período sangrento da história mundial. Basicamente, junto a Lênin, Trotsky liderou a revolução russa e libertou o país da dinastia dos Romanov (czarismo). Após a morte de Lênin, Trotsky pretendia continuar com os ideais da revolução, mas Stálin e sua sede de poder a qualquer custo, ainda secretário do partido comunista, havia preparado o terreno e começou a perseguição aos seus "camaradas" e Lev foi obrigado a buscar asilo político, primeiro dentro da própria URSS (ainda que não seja um asilo), França, Noruega e finalmente no México, local onde viveu até ser assassinado a mando de Stálin por um suposto amigo. Antes disso já havia sobrevivido a um atentado em que liberais mexicanos metralharam sua casa com mais de 80 tiros. Suas cinzas e de sua esposa estão juntas no monumento (estela) da primeira foto. Independente de visões políticas sobre o mundo a lição que fica é a de que a democracia, com todos os seus defeitos, é o que garante a mínima condição material de existência digna humana para que possamos exercer nossa condição de indivíduos e cidadãos e nos expressarmos contra qualquer situação que vá contra os valores que acreditamos como certos para nossa sociedade. #cdmx #ciudaddemexico #coyoacan #visitmexico #foundinmexico #mexicocity #urss #revolution #politica #politicalhistory #politicalscience #politics #historia #historychannel #science #trotsky #leontrotsky #nataliasedova #lenin #museu #museo #museoscdmx #memory #nationalgeographic #natgeotraveler #respect #biography #democracia #democracy #1917
Museu Soumaya - Carlos Slim (aquele mesmo) e sua esposa (Soumaya) decidiram concentrar sua coleção de artes e assim foi concebido esse museu. Nele estão reunidos centenas de obras que vão de quadros, murais e esculturas a peças chinesas; também tem um andar dedicado à exposições temporárias. Tipo eles combinam com uma galera da Europa que sabe de arte e trás tudo isso pro museu deles, simples assim. A arquitetura é a primeira obra de arte que você vê quando chega ao museu. 1 - O próprio museu; 2 - Um tal de Van Gogh; 3 - Um muralista e artista local (de Guanajuato) chamado Diego Maria de la Concepción Juan Nepomuceno Estanislao de la Rivera y Barrientos Acosta y Rodriguez, vulgo Diego Rivera; 4 - A (grande) porta do inferno, de Rodin; 5 - Selfie de Emiliano Zapata, assinada pelo próprio; 6 - algum desses impressionistas fudidos que não lembro o nome (Renoir). E o acesso ao museu é gratuito! @cnntravel , @bbc_travel , @natgeotravelerlatam @natgeo.traveler #wonderfuldestinations #natgeolatam #mexicocity #ciudaddemexico #visitmexico #vivamexico #culture #cultura #nationalgeographic #arquitectura #historia #historychannel #arthistory #art #natgeotraveler #instacdmx #soumayamuseum #artofinstagram #arte #vangogh #diegorivera #augusterodin #impressionism #impressionismo #muralist #muralism #pierreaugusterenoir #polanco #dawn
Ruínas Mayas de Tulum. Pense nessas ruínas! Agora imagina que elas estão à beira de uma praia caribenha. Pois é, os maias eram muito inteligentes. Essa região era um porto de troca e comercialização de mercadorias em que o transporte era feito por barcos que iam até outras tribos no que hoje são países da américa central como: Belize, Honduras e Guatemala. #pueblomagico #visitmexico #vivamexico #tulumruins #viajemospormexico #mayanriviera #caribemexicano #playa #pueblosmagicos #historychannel #historia #natgeotraveler #natgeolatam #cultura #ruins #archaeology #arqueologia #quintanaroo #anthropologie #anthropology #zonainah #paisaje #cnntravel #magic #lonelyplanet #rivieramaya #nationalgeographic #yucatanpeninsula #destinosdiscovery #wonderfuldestinations @vouali_voltologo
Finalmente terminei a visita do famoso Museu Nacional de Antropologia do México. Foram necessárias três visitas para poder ler todos os relatos, admirar todas as peças, trabalho e compromisso dos cientistas desse país em manter viva, não só a história deles, mas a de parte de toda a América. Aqui é contada toda a história de seu povo antes de serem descobertos e explorados pelos espanhóis, ou seja, toda sua história pré colombiana. Nós brasileiros devemos refletir e aprender "con nuestros hermanos", haja vista termos muitas semelhanças, que não ficam restritas somente ao amor pelo futebol. #nationalgeographic #instacdmx #historychannel #archaeology #natgeolatam #zonainah #americanhistory #natgeotraveler #architecture #anthropologie #anthropology #wonderfuldestinations #yaqui #bones #science #ceramica #sculpture #foundinmexico #visitmexico #arqueologia #cultura #historia #aztec #maya #toltec #cnntravel #bbctravel #museo #museu #precolumbian @inahmx @sectur_mx @vouali_voltologo
