Jehangir's Tomb Fresco

As you enter through the main entranceway you come into the corridor leading to the burial chambers, this corridor is intricately painted and has been preserved for centuries, the walls are adorned with soothing geometric and floral fresco well known in Mughal architecture.

rebel: have alook at the comments I left on Abe Lincoln's blog today - Iit has a link to the Blogger in Draft mode, where you can post-date your posts and HOPEFULLY it automatically publishes on the given date and time. Shall see when I am away the next few days.

I see the Aussie Cricket Board agreed to the dates for the postponed test series next year.

Babooshka, Thanks, I figured might as well post related pictures together and then move on to other subjects.

Amazing scene. I finds this intriguing to realize the craftsmanship to create these ancient buildings and frescos by hand. Nothing in modern day can compare to the beauty you captured here.

I just sent you an email, I hope it helps you.

These days, Brittany (Western France, where I live) is yellow almost everywhere all over the fields, canola is an important production for the farmers. Thank you for visiting Arradon DP!

The detail is wonderful. Its hard to imagine that it can stay so nice through all of the years, it takes some dedication to keep it up I bet.
