[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Very characteristic Hindu architecture in the Johdah’s palace inside mainly Muslim Agra Fort. Queen Johdah was the Hindu wife of the Mughal Emperor Akbar who was Muslim.

Akbar (1542 – 1605) is considered to be the greatest of the Mughal rulers of India. A very enlightened ruler, his reign significantly influenced art and culture. Although he could not read nor write, He was fond of literature, and had several Sanskrit works translated into Persian, apart from getting many Persian works illustrated by painters from his court. His reign was also a period of religious tolerance and he initiated a series of religious debates where Muslim scholars would debate religious matters with Sikhs, Hindus, atheists and Portuguese Roman Catholic Jesuits.

Akbar married Johdah, a Hindu princess from Jaipur. This was the first instance of royal matrimony between Hindu and Muslim dynasties in India.

Bonjour Sunil.
Magnifiques détails de cette belle architecture et couleur ocre bien adaptés à cette belle photo.
Bonne journée.

Hello Sunil! Amazing architecture, wonderful details, excellent note, interesting information. Superb composition, good capture. Ideal exposure. Well done!

I like the pinkish coloration throughout the shot ,a candy-like architectural delight sort of presentation , superbly decorated it just tickles my brain , all that wealth shown here , being picky here i would raise exposure as a little more illumination may be benificial to the general lighting of the scene , a little dark in the corners particularly ,hey you must have had a crazy time to absorb all this Sunil , i would !
Greetings , Carol
Thanks for the info !
