"Promettimi tre cose: che continuerai ad amarmi e non ti risposerai, che crescerai i nostri figli come un padre e non come un re, e che farai in modo che l’umanità ricordi per sempre il nostro amore” - sono le ultime parole di Mumtaz Mahai, moglie dell'imperatore Shah Jahan, morta dando alla luce il loro quattordicesimo figlio
Il Taj Mahal rappresenta questa promessa d'amore: è il mausoleo più grande e più bello mai costruito in ricordo di una donna.
Alla costruzione di questo monumento lavorarono circa 20.000 persone, provenienti sia dall'India sia dai paesi dell'Asia centrale. Alcuni degli artigiani più abili ed esperti giunsero addirittura dall'Europa, per lavorare agli intarsi in marmo bianco e alle decorazioni delle pareti in pietre semipreziose
Secondo la leggenda, alla fine dei lavori, avvenuta intorno al 1650 dopo circa vent'anni, l'imperatore ordinò di tagliare le mani agli artigiani, di accecare i calligrafi e di decapitare l'architetto Ustad 'Isa, in modo tale che chiunque avesse partecipato alla costruzione del monumento non potesse mai più ricreare un'opera così perfetta e meravigliosa.
This is a story of two birds.
One of them builds a nest. He flies away to gather things, he arranges the twigs, he is very active, he does a lot of things.
Above this bird, on another branch, there is a second bird. It looks identical to the first bird, but it does not build anything. He's just an observer. He does not build an image of himself from what he perceives, he is not deeply interested in what he sees. His perception happens quite spontaneously without effort or judgment. There is silence, a feeling of being without thought. Just observe.
Shekhawati region is known for frescoes and art but let me tell Rajasthan in whole is an open art gallery. Thakurs, Rajas and Maharajas are remembered for their battle stories but they also were patrons, l connoisseur and custodians of art and craft. They would bring in artisans from all over and proliferate the art in their kingdoms.
To visit the open art gallery join us for the @tourdethar 25-30th December.
Angkor Wat translates to "City of Temples" or simply "City Temple." New temples and ruins are being discovered nearly every year.
Angkor Wat, Cambodia's famous UNESCO World Heritage Site, is breathtaking and thrilling to explore. The temple ruins have a way of igniting the inner archaeologist in all of us. You won't soon forget wandering the sprawling, carved ruins of a once-great civilization!
The history of the City of Temples is riddled with incredible facts and events. For instance, Angkor Wat is the largest religious monument in the world, but it didn't make the new list of Seven Wonders of the World, and while it was previously rented for profit to an entity outside of Cambodia, the local government took back control in 2019.
Angkor Wat is the primary reason that more than 50% of international tourists visit Cambodia each year. Cambodians are proud of their ancient monument, so proud that they put it on the Cambodian flag in 1850.

BIRIYANI KOLKATA! New feather added to the cap of Koshe Kosha in Behala, while Koshe Kosha brings you bengali cuisine, Biriyani Kolkata on the top floor introduces North Indian Delicacies.
In the frame:
Mutton and Chicken Biriyani
Mutton Rezala -Recommended. Soft, succulent mutton pieces dipped in delicious curry which is made in Yogurt, Cashew and Poppy seeds paste that gives it a rich flavour. The dish is filled with loads of flavour and subtle taste from the use of cardamom and nutmeg. The curry is best enjoyed with Garlic Naan or Wheat paratha for a perfect evening meal.
Chicken Chaap- Recommended. Combination of juicy and moist chicken pieces and rich and thick gravy.
I believe any biryani is incomplete without Chicken Chaap/Chanp. Some people like Rezala but I prefer rezala with Rumali ruti. So when bisyani was on my table chaap had to be there at any cost along with raita and salad.
