Not a large mosque, but certainly a unique one. While most mosques have inscriptions in Arabic, this mosque had inscriptions in Turkish.

The arches inside were unique. This is a privately owned mosque so permission to click photographs inside can be obtained by speaking to the owners.

Arches galore

An elevated vantage resulting from a little monkeying around. I noticed a few teenagers on the topmost storey of one of theĀ  tombs through the view finder. The curiosity getting the better of me, I found myself taking the dark stairway. The height allowed for a nice view of the surrounding tombs, esp this one with so many of those arches. It wasn’t long before the caretakers told us it wasnt allowed to climb up, as it was rather unsafe. In the past some people have jumped off accidentally.

Sometimes a very small but seemingly insignificant part of an image ends up holding your attention more than all other ornate details that surround it.

As a visitor to the QS Tombs complex would almost immediately know, the place is filled with couples and clandestine romances, all tucked away amongst those arches. While walking past, I looked back and he was sitting just where I would have wished he was, possibly in conversation.

A very different view of the Charminar, kind of like the old v/s new, attractive colours and arches with the minarets in the backdrop. It is amazing how different perspectives can lead to very different visuals.

Chowmahalla Palace

I didnt quite realise it has been a very long time since I visited this palace complex. The last time I visited was more than three years ago, and when I visited this time to my pleasant surprise all the four(chow) palaces(mahalla) were open to the public. But it was a very cloudy day to make any decent photographs, or so I thought. Till it was closing time and I was probably the last person to walk out! The fountains were off and offered some peaceful reflections with a blue cloudy sky.

More about the palace and its history can be read on wiki
