Arch passage - Lotus Mahal Hampi —*^—*^—
It’s not hard to miss such a beauty standing tall undamaged for so long.
One of the many arch passages covered with a dome that looks like an opened lotus bud. The style and designs is an inquisitive blend of Islamic and Indian way of architecture, which makes it looks like a Lotus from a distance, & that’s how it got it’s name. —-*^ —*^—-*^—-
UNESCO World Heritage Site located in Karnataka, India.
Bombay dawns from my kitchen window... whenever I see these hundreds of skyscraper construction sites around south and central Bombay I have two thoughts: “Great, the skyline will look awesome once they are all finished and lit up” immediately followed by “How on earth are they gonna manage the traffic in this area?”... Mumbai is the second most densely populated city in the world and, driven by economic growth, every single day, 700 more cars hit the road... while incomes and number of cars have surely changed in the last decades, roads and infrastructure hasn’t... the most tiny lanes with small shops and vegetable sellers on each side lead to the new +300m high apartment complexes, small backyard alleys lead to the cities most busiest corporate parks... I once had to walk through a cow-shelter in the morning to make it to a 9am meeting with one of the big four at the 200m high Ruby tower in central Bombay... apparently that was the way to go 🤷🏾♂️...it’s gonna be interesting to see what’s gonna happen to the infrastructure in the city over the next years, but one thing is sure - it’s gonna get cozy on these roads :)... #OnlyInBombay
I am obsessed and crazy about sunset. There is nothing quite as good as sitting and watching the sun go down on other day of adventure while you are travelling and reflecting on what you have been doing. Even on a bad day, it reminds me everything will pass and I’m strong enough to make it through.
