Purana Qila (Old Fort) is one of the oldest forts in Delhi. The present citadel at Purana Qila is believed to have been built under Sher Shah Suri. But the latest studies point to traces from the 3rd century BC, the pre-Mauryan period.

Starting our countdown to #tefaf2018 with this lovely piece! #Repost @tefaf_art_fair ・・・
The tradition of wearing Baju bands was inherited by the Mughals from their ancestors, the Timurids. The word Baju band is derived from baju, meaning arm and band, meaning closers, and is worn on the upper arm. The most traditional form of the Baju band was composed of a large stone of exceedingly high quality, for example an emerald, which, in the days of the Mughals, came from Colombia via the Portuguese and flanked by two pearls. They became more ornate through the centuries and were another form of displaying the fines gems, particularly when a number were worn together. It was symbolic of aristocracy, masculinity and their role as conquerors, but the practice of wearing Baju bands began as an amulet to guard the wearer form his enemies in battle. They were usually composed of stones which had been astrologically chosen to ward off certain malefic effects, later a more decorative role took on and became an important accessory to the king. They became more significant during the provincial rule, when all the Maharajas wore them to identify their role. ~

#Shivaji won #SinghGarh Fort from #Mughals. This victory was on the shoulders of #Tanaji who was martyred in this attack. #Shivaji proclaimed "Garh Aalaa Pan Singh Gela" which means that Fort was won but the Lion was lost.

That is "Hawa Mahal" right behind me. It is named Hawa Mahal simply because the King used to sit here and enjoy the breeze with his queens.
