What kings thought when they built grand structures I don't know. Everything just turned to dust. The erstwhile palaces of grandeur, splendour and hedonism are just dilapidated ruins. #orccha #oldtemple #india #incredibleindia #kingsandqueens #heritage #oldschool #forts #monuments #madhyapradesh #rajput #archeologicalsurveyofindia #temple #faith #belief #nokia #nokiamobile #zeiss #zeisslens #culture #bundelkhand #jhansi #indiaphotoproject #indiaphotosociety #coloursofindia #royal #royalty
"One day," you said to me "I watched the sunset forty-four times" And a little later, you added : "You know....one loves the sunset, when one is so sad..." "Were you sad then?" I asked, " on the day you watched those forty-four sunsets?" But the little prince made no reply. #thelittleprince #orccha #conversationonsunsets #throwback

On this day... from my journal. #orccha #intrepidtravel #india This morning I didn’t feel too well. My throat is sore. It's hot today. We had a look around a palace today, it was spectacular. A bit like a labyrinth. I am beginning to find similarities in the architecture. There were a lot of architecture students studying the place. Then, we walked through Orccha (which means ‘hidden place’ – it was in the middle of the jungle) to another temple and then off to look at the cenotaphs which are four large, almost identical buildings that look like they belong in Cambodia. The gardens were wonderful. We spotted many vultures nesting. An old fella shimmied up the scariest staircase and dragged us with him for “the view”. We were not disappointed. A really sweet family, an Indian man and his wife and daughter asked us for a photo. Used to Chanderi, we took a photo of them and showed them. They left us, but I noticed that they hung around for a bit. It struck me that we had misunderstood their request, I ran after them and asked if they had a camera. They really wanted a photo with us to take home. I’m glad we realised. I was meant to be going to a cooking class this evening, but I didn’t want to miss the sunset. I felt bad cancelling at such short notice, but Rob went to the class with Jonathan and Monica and I went to the one lone bridge to watch the sunset. I met up with Pradeep and Rachel and Tim. At one point Pradeep saw a kid fishing on the bridge. The fishing rod was odd, it had a giant magnet on the end of it. He was fishing for coins. Pradeep helped him and he caught six rupees and a British penny (thanks to Rachel!). A bus came along the bridge and it was tight. The bus stopped and it was decided that while it was stationary, we would shuffle alongside the bus and out of its way. The little boy grabbed my hand to help me. He wouldn’t let go and we became firm friends as we crossed the bridge. The sunset, falling behind the cenotaphs was incredible. We met back at the hotel. The boys and Monica came back from the cooking class. The food they bought back was amazing and very spicy! Thankfully Robert has written down all of the recipes.

Snowy weekends means time to cook! Last night I made homemade paneer for a vegetarian curry, using a recipe I learned in a cooking class in #orccha northern #india . . Yum!
When your view of the world wasn't just limited to a 26 inch TV screen. When the world was made of seasons, foggy winter moonlit nights and bright sunny days. When the air from the outside carried the cool breeze, the petrichor from the showers on a monsoon evening. When the bloom of spring and the freshly sprouted blades of grass were common sites to be seen. When the sky was as blue as in your dreams. #orccha #oldtemple #india #incredibleindia #kingsandqueens #heritage #oldschool #simplelife #forts #monuments #madhyapradesh #rajput #archeologicalsurveyofindia #temple #faith #belief #nokia #nokiamobile #zeiss #zeisslens #culture #bundelkhand #jhansi #indiaphotoproject #indiaphotosociety

The historic town of Orchha, nestled on the banks of river Betwa, was founded in the 16th century by the Bundela Rajput Chief, Rudra Pratap. The ancient town seems frozen in time, with its many monuments continuing to retain their original grandeur even to this day. Here you will find some of the most fascinating temples and palaces that will help you realise a childhood fantasy – travelling back in time! . . . . #Orccha #mpwithmylovedones #mptourism #incredibleindia #fortofindia #temple #sunsets #rajput #traveldiaries #hindustankadildekho
Till today culture has survived in smaller spaces, not in history books. So let's conserve it, instead of keeping the books in half forgotten libraries ! #archeologicalsurveyofindia #royalchhatris #orccha #mptourism #incrediblemadhyapradesh #incredibleindia #tourismindia #travelindia #travelphotography #dronephotography #phantom4 #phantom #tourism

Orchha fort as seen from Chaturbhuj Temple ,Orccha, Tikamgarh, MP The भूलभुलैया here gave me a leg day :) #mptourism #mp #orccha #medievalarchitecture
Sound 🔊 ⬅️SWIPE➡️ My job allows me to travel to many places in India and recently I shot videos for Madhya Pradesh Tourism. I was surprised to know that MP has such a rich history. Looking at such forts makes me wonder how they must have designed and built such amazing structure back then when technology was so less. Or were they much ahead in every sense than what we are now? Comment below what do you think. #wanderingminds #madhyapradeshtourism #madhyapradesh #orccha #jahangirmahal #dji #djiphantom4 #canon1dxmarkii #canonindia #historic #fort #djironinm #adobe #transcendfilms
Imagine me walking through the doorway of this palace in a long flowy blue sapphire dress. Much better, yes? Although this entrance and those doors speak for themselves.
