Photographer's Note

The picture was taken at Garh Panchakot.It is situated in the district of Purulia, West Bengal.Apparently there was a king who lived here with his 17 queens. He was attacked by the Portuguese and fled leaving his queens to commit suicide in a well in the palace. The fort was subsequently abandoned. The ruins are really ruins and there is no ASI protection or any other such government effort to preserve anything there.
