Where was I? Where am I?

Poetry for the Kings and Vezirs

Note the Persian Poetry. I think this was at Homayun's or his minister's tomb. Persian was the court and administrative language in large parts of India before English replaced it with the rise of British colonial rule.

Mini domes for the holy book

Stand out the mini domes, where the ghari would read the holy book for the deceased!

Needing attention

Even masonry needs attention ...

He rests

He rests in eternal peace.


They rest in eternal peace.

Delhi, India, November 2007

The word oft-spoken in praise!
