अंगात नाही रक्त , तरी म्हणे मी हनुमानाचा भक्त! (For my non-maharashtrian friends, translation : ‘Less of hemoglobin content in the body, yet the person claims to be a devotee of Lord Hanuman).

The Clapping Portico. The first thing anyone entering the Golconda Fort in Hyderabad does is clap.  Clap inside the grand portico under the dome and it can be heard in the Bala Hisar pavilion more than a km away, on top of a mountain. Here's some history on this. The Clapping Portico, worked as a signalling device. Whenever visitors arrived at the gate, a man stationed here would communicate it—to the Sultan’s guards atop the hill—by clapping. Codes were used: one clap for a friend, two for a foe (in which case, the gates along the outer walls would be shut at once), three for an honoured guest, and so on. . . . . . . . . . . . #goldconda #golkonda #golcondafort #theclappingportico #fortsofindia #travel #travelgram #hyderabad #hyderabaddiaries #ancient #india #history #indianhistory #hyderabaddiaries
It is true that the highest of all companionship is the company of the real self. Those who learn to enjoy the real self within are never lonely. We often forget the eternal Friend within. When we learn to know our real self we do not depend on externals. Dependence on external relationships is ignorance that needs to be dispelled. Being alone happily means enjoying the constant company-the constant awareness-of the Reality. - excerpts from 'Living with the Himalayan Masters' . .

Mashrur rockcut temples.. . . . A monolithic mountain-style Nagara group of temples which are quite damaged from earthquakes. These are carved out of monolithic rock with the "shikhara". Also it is provided with a sacred pond which is unusual in Nagara style of temple architecture. The temples face the Dhauladhar range of the Himalayas. Though a major temples complex in the surviving form, the archaeological studies suggest that the architects had a far more ambititious plan and the complex remains incomplete. Much of the Masrur temple's sculpture and reliefs have been lost in repeated earthquakes. . . . #mashrur #rockcuttemple #mountaintemples #nagara #monolithic #kangravalley #himachalpradesh #india #vscotravel #tranquilidade #traveldrug #vacation #rico #visitindia #losveranos #trips2018 #fernweh #fortsofindia #yourshotindia #lumixshot

I have a past of glory and then tragedy. None of you in the present have had any part to play- neither as participants nor witnesses.

The City Palace, a spectacular architectural marvel situated in the centre of the Jaipur city, houses an incredible collection of weapons, attires, ornaments and paintings of the Rajaputana rulers. It's a must visit for everyone who wants a peek into the life and times of Rajput rulers. #citypalacejaipur #rajasthan #rajasthandiaries #rajasthantourism #indiapictures #wanderer #travelinspo #traveldiaries #indiaview #incredibleindia #incrediblerajasthan #lonelyplanetindia #beautifulindia #beautifuldestinations #rajputana #traveller #trell #travelindia #tripotocommunity #femmetravel #globewanderer #fortsofindia Courtesy: @lightcameraphotograph
Rise & Thrive : This picture is of the fortified Suvela ridge of Rajgad, the capital fort of the Marathas for 27 years starting 1647, then the capital was moved to Raigad. Interesting trivia about Rajgad is that the head of tyrant Afzal Khan is burried in the Mahadarwaja (Grand Door) walls of Balle Killa (highest section of the fort) . . #fortsofindia #fortsofmaharashtra #RajGad #suvelaMachi #pune_ig #puneigers #fortsnearpune #_soi #bha2pa
from @wannabemaven - It’s unlikely to find Reis Magos Fort on a tourist’s wish-list of things to do in Goa. This partially works because you have the beautifully restored fort to yourself. Originally built in 1497 by Adil Shah of Bijapur, the Reis Magos Fort was later captured by the Portuguese in 1543. By the 1900s the fort was no more used as a defensive structure, but a prison.

Who does the fort protect ? #freedomvssecurity
Suggest me places I should travel to in India!! _ We travel, initially, to lose ourselves; and we travel, next to find ourselves. We can’t jump off bridges anymore because our iPhones will get ruined. We can’t take skinny dips in the ocean because there’s no service on the beach and adventures aren’t real unless they’re on Instagram. Technology has doomed the spontaneity of adventure and we’re helping destroy it every time we Google, check-in, and hashtag. _ IG: @arpita_agnihotri Website: www.desitravelers.com _ #DesiTravelers #AAinJaipur #AAinRajasthan #TravelwithArpita #RajasthanTourism #ImperialRajasthan #Travelblogger #Jaipur #Rajasthan #NGTIndia #India

Lohagad has a long history with several dynasties occupying it at different periods of time: Satavahanas, Chalukyas, Rashtrakutas, Yadavas, Bahamanis, Nizams, Mughals and Marathas. Shivaji Maharaj captured it in 1648 CE, but he was forced to surrender it to the Mughals in 1665 CE by the Treaty of Purandar. Shivaji recaptured the fort in 1670 CE and used it for keeping his treasury. This fort was used to keep the loot from Surat. Later in Peshwa time Nana Phadnavis used this fort for living for sometime and built several structures in the fort such as a big tank and a step-well. It rises to an elevation of 1,033 m (3,389 ft) above sea level. What a thrilling trek and a serene experience. #LohagadFort #Maharashtra #India #IncredibleIndia #InstaGo #InstaTrip #InstaNature #InstaIndia #IndiaIg #InstaTravel #FortsOfIndia #SwipeRight #FortPhotography #NatureLovers #TravelPhotography #TravelGram #Travelingram #TravelBlogger #Traveller #MyTravelGram #PicOfTheDay #PhotoOfTheDay #ClickOfTheDay #HillFort #Trails #Trekking #Hiking #TFLers #NaturePhotography #MountainPhotography
St.Thomas Fort, Tangasseri, Kollam St. Thomas Fort also known as Tangasseri Fort, is a ruined fort located in the beach town of Tangasseri on the shores of the Arabian Sea in the city of Kollam, Kerala, India. It is located around 5 kilometres (3.1 mi) from the city center of Kollam and 71 kilometres (44 mi) from the state capital Thiruvananthapuram. Tangasseri was associated with the Chinese trade from the first millennium As and later colonised by the Portuguese, Dutch and the British to become the "gold village". According to Historians, Captain Rodriguez came to Quilon and was appointed as the captain of the factory and trade, with permission from the queen. St.Thomas Fort (once known as Forte de São Tomé) was built by the Portuguese under Afonso de Albuquerque for the protection of the newly developed trade. In 1505 the Portuguese established a trading port here, and in 1518 established its sovereignty through the construction of Fort St. Thomas. Later in 1661 the town and the fort were handed over to the Dutch who made it the capital of Dutch Malabar. The Dutch occupied the fort for several years. In 1795, the British East India Company took possession of the fort. In 1823 Fort St. Thomas accepted a lease by Travancore from the British Government for a period of twenty years. Fort St. Thomas was originally around 20 feet (6.1 m) tall. Today, the remains of the fort, popularly known as "Tangasseri fort" remain facing the beach. The government of India has taken over the fort and it is being considered an historical landmark. Restoration of the fort is ongoing. At present, the fort is managed by the Archaeological Survey of India(ASI).
