Tate Modern - London

Tate art gallery

I am not a big fan of art but I really appreciate the work done by various artists all over the world with their efforts to make the world little more beautiful with their thoughts and creativity.

The Tate Modern is a modern art gallery which is located in central London and it is the most visited modern art gallery in the world with around 4.7 million visitors per year. This was enough for me to visit the most talked about gallery in town.

The Ancient Dolls

I bring you here the ancient dolls depicting the King and the Queen from the Neemrana fort in Neemrana, Rajasthan.

They seem like welcoming the visitors as they are placed just at the entrance gate of the fort. What do you think?

Homes of Jaisalmer (Rajasthan)

Courtyard of a Jaisalmer House 
The Golden city of Rajasthan, Jaisalmer is named after its founder Maharawal Jaisal Singh. Jaisalmer means "the hill fort of Jaisal". It is known as the golden city because of yellow sand and yellow sandstone used in the architecture which gives golden-yellow look.

Most of the part of this golden city is part of Thar desert, also known as The Great Indian Desert. The temperature is usually high during the day time and nights are pretty cold. In summers the temperature can go as high as 50 degrees which becomes unbearable for human habitation, yet people continue to live and prosper. They have designed the houses in such a way that they provide cool and soothing effect in summers. Made out of woods and mud, they are the most successful way to beat the heat in summers.
