ETERNAL SLUMBER

The Enchanting Royal Cenotaphs in Bundi, Rajasthan are located besides a Lotus Lake and surrounded by the Ancient Aravalli Hills.

The Pictures remind me of movies Like India Jones, Tomb Raider and blogs on Angkor Vat.

The Era of Kings and Queens is over, yet these lovely Structures now run over by Nature remind me of an Era long gone by, when they Ruled this very Land under which they lie in Eternal Slumber.

Forgotten and hidden among trees

The Leaves have fallen from the  naked trees and turned to dust along with The Maharajas ( Kings)  and Maharanis ( Queens)  whose ashes lie beneath these lofty Cenotaphs, called Chattris ( literal translation is an Umbrella) in Hindi.

Ancient trees mask the Royal Cenotaphs

Details like the procession of Elephants in stone carved at the based of the Chattris and the Beautiful Natural Surroundings accentuate the beauty of this relatively unknown region of Rajasthan.

Previous blogs like RIP PRETTY ONE, THE HAUNTED and TRANQUILITY have somehow compelled my subconscious Brain to unveil these ROYAL CHAMBERS of Everlasting Peace.

  1. Just loved all your contents that showcases the hidden gems in India… India is a country that is rich in history… we have read these words innumerable times in our History books but hardly any of those treasures are cared upon or showcased by our Tourism Industry. Whenever I go places and c even the tiniest bit of architecture or nature projected out as main attractions of the respective country or city, hyped with many enchanting stories, I sadly reminisce the vast amount of those unexplored or not let known treasures that our country withholds and would be a feast for a wanderlust or a photographer…
