The public office building in the south of Pudukottai is a wide two-storied structure of exposed brick, pointed neatly with arched gothic windows and spiral staircases. The building was the palace of the king of Pudukottai. It is now occupied by the office of the revenue divisional officer and the civil courts along with several departments of district administration.
These buildings are of red brick uncovered by mortar and belong to a style popularised by Robert Chisholm and vaguely called ‘Indo-Saracenic’.

Good sharpness and clarity, nice shot.

Fabulous red-bricks edifice, impressive with the many white turrets.
Taken under perfect light conditions, to contrast well the colors.
Movement of bikers and people there gave extra vivid scale.

Superb warm cold colour contrasts between the red palace & the blue sky with good sharpness & excellent inclusion of the people to add scale. Nice graphism and the fg boy adds depth. Good repetition of patterns & shapes in the architecture. Tfs!

A fascinating picture with this building as attractive and different, just in India you can find these original architectures, I like the POV that you've made showing two of its facades, perfect verticality of the towers. I like the nice touch of the child in the foreground.
Very good management of the brightness and sharpness, color is perfect, and the red of the building gives a significant impact to the image. Well done.
Have a great evening.

A really nice red buiding! The colour and the architecture really catch our eye and the little boy trying to get your attention is just perfect! Good capture!

The more i learn of India here on TE, the more it seems that it really is a land of palaces. It even more cool that these buildings have been preserved and are still in use for the benefit of the public. Your point of view on this is perfect and its a fascinating architectural study
All the best
