Memory Lane

This is the most beautiful place in the whole world. It's my favourite place at least. It's basically a park where my Sis and I would frequent and talk endlessly about things, discuss our studying modules, laugh at my artistic [in]capabilities, crack jokes and all those things which would make sense only to us. I love this place and all the memories attached to it, which by the way, we still live.
Even though a very basic click, but its slightly more than just another casual click for me. It is my sister's and my Memory Lane, which continues to grow by the day....

The Purana Qila is one of the oldest and the finest monuments in India and I was only lucky to visit the place on my trip to Delhi this summer.
The fort is believed to be founded by the Pandavas which later served as a Humayun's capital city- Dina Panah. The fort and its environs flourished as the sixth city of Delhi during this period.
Diverse framework and multifarious architectural style is easily one of the main highlights of this fort. Built in double-storeyed sandstone, the structure is flanked by two semi-circular bastion towers and is decorated with white and coloured marble inlays and blue tiles and also comprises of over hanging balconies, Jharokas and pillar pavillion Chhatris.
The fort is the finest blend of Rajasthani and Mughal forms of architecture.

I was at the Red Fort and like any other commoner was overwhelmed by its historic significance and the role that it had essayed all through these years, by its grandeur and by all those frames that had hidden in them numerous stories about its celebrated past. In short, by its very existence!!
As for the photo, this is the Diwan-i-Khaas [A conference room of sorts for the elite and the nobles]. I'd quite loved this frame, its something that I've always wanted to click. So well, there I was....
