This is my another image of Salim Chisti Mosque at Fatepur Sikri in Agra. I shoot it at the first week of March, 2013. In my earlier post I stated about this mosque.
Originally it was a sandstone structure, but it converted into a more expensive marble structure sometime during the end of Jahangir’s reign and the beginning of Shah Jahan’s reign as per the style of the period, and thus creates a contrast with the grandiose, massive and purposeful nature of the structures surrounding it with its own light and airy nature which gives an appearance of chiseled, polished and fretted exquisiteness.
An wide arcade is carried around the outside, its roof supported by pillars. The tomb chamber on all sides is surrounded by marble walls and the arcade, on three sides. It is on these latticed screens that the pilgrims tie threads when they throng the tomb, seeking the fulfillment of their wishes.
with best wishes to all.

une très belle photo de cet intérieur de mosquée. Les beaux tons ivoires et la finesse de l'architecture sont mis en valeur par une superbe lumière. Le choix du POV est excellent, il donne une belle profondeur à l'image. Amicalement,

Namaste Swapan. Your words "an appearance of chiseled, polished and fretted exquisiteness" say it all. A beautiful place in which to seek shade and relief from the heat and ponder about the transience of life and the Creator's many wonders and mysteries.At first I thought it was a photo in sepia but it really is the honeyed colour of the aged marble. Great exposure in difficult setting. Best wishes. Klaudio.

Excelent use of the backlight effect from outside, details shown in a great sharpness.
The lone man sitting on the floor gave good scale to the whole.
A fine shot and well explained note.

Very interesting and attractive interior picture!
Special regards to the exposure, horizontal format and composition! The presence of the lonely man was very welcome and you placed him so harmoniously in the frame!
TFS - congrats,
