Namaste friends... ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ˜Š The Queens Bath is an UNESCO certified world heritage site and is believed to be constructed by Achyuta Raya for the women of the royal family of Vijayanagara. Built in Indo-Islamic style, the Queens Bath is an elaborate structure with a simple exterior and an ornate interior. It is a rectangular building and is surrounded by ornate balconies, each having a set of three windows. Each arched bay surrounding the bath is decorated with intricate carved stucco ornamentation on the ceilings and the vaults placed above the arched bays. The pool has stone steps leading to the bottom of the tank. This structure is surrounded by a moat on all sides and a bridge like structure is made to reach the pool. Probably this was designed to prevent people from entering the area when the royals were bathing. The Queens Bath is an empty structure now. The floor of the bath has some empty sockets that were once used to support pillars. These pillars are believed to have been part of a canopy that was destroyed during the Deccan Sultans attack on Hampi. Wishing you all my friends a great week ahead! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ #QueensBath #royalfamily #IndoIslamic #pool #ornateinterior #stucco #Hampi #UNESCO #worldheritagesite #photooftheday #nofilter #namastefriends #ะะฐะผะฐัั‚ะตะ”ั€ัƒะทัŒั #India #ะ˜ะฝะดะธั #travel #namaste #travelIndia #loveIndia #wanderlust #l4l #followme #explore #tbt #ff #instatravel #instagood #karnataka

Iltutmish Tomb. The tomb of Shamsuddin Iltutmish, the Sultan of Delhi from the Slave Dynasty is situated within the Qutb Complex. The emperor known for his military and political achievements (among which is keeping the Mongols at bay), has a befitting tomb. It is a cuboidal tomb whose dome had collapsed (despite repairs by later Sultans it is absent today). Although the outside is bare, the interior is beautifully carved. Quranic verses in Nastaliq can be read. The tomb is also one of the first instances of a squinch - small arch built into a square to permit the construction of a dome. #dome #tomb #sultan #delhi #northindia #incredibleindia #history #heritage #culture #art #architecture #style #quran #indoislamic #verse #carve #persian #script #travel #politics #war #arch #white #red

The 11th (or 1st) commandment is have ice cream at the seaside when the sun shines. Or just have ice cream. Today it was orange and date gelato. A winning combo. #icecream #iloveicecream #commandment #gelato #gelatogusto #orange #date #brightonpavillion #architecture #palace #indoislamic #park #bluesky #seaside #sunnyday #brighton

Gol Gumbaz. Gol Gumbaz meaning round dome is an apt title for the tomb because the dome is the most striking element here - the largest in the country. It is the tomb of Muhammad Adil Shah, one of the last Adil Shahi emperors. Although sublime, the monument is quite featureless. Gol Gumbaz is also known for the whisper tunnel, a circular terrace under the ceiling where sounds are amplified. The complex also features a mosque that was commissioned by the sultan.
