#mausoleum

This gorgeous photo of the Shah-i Zinda - my favourite monument in Samarkand - is included in @vogueparis’ review of the new @assouline coffee table book about Uzbekistan. The colours have been enhanced a little, I think, but there’s no doubt about the intricacy of the mosaic tile designs and the stunning impression these medieval tombs make.

So as many of you pointed out, the previous post containing the picture of the mosque and the mausoleum of the Anglo Arabic School reminded you of the Nizamuddin shrine complex. Yes, it's true that these two structures bear an uncanny resemblance and barring a few major and minor differences, they might be misconstrued to be the same. More or less, these two structures belong to the same era but the time period of approximately 60-70years between the construction of these two structures was wrought with severe turmoil and uncertainty. Speaking of the Anglo Arabic School, the mosque and mausoleum were built in the 1690s during the rule of Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb and is believed to be highly inspired by the tomb of Jahanara Begum. The similar looking mausoleum in the Nizamuddin Dargah complex was built sometime in the 1730s by the Mughal Emperor Mohammad Shah Rangeela for himself. The mosque in the Nizamuddin shrine however is a Khilji era structure from the early 1300s, which is one of the most distinguishing features between the two structures. Interesting information: The mosque in the Nizamuddin Dargah Complex is oldest functioning mosque of Delhi. . . . . . . . . . . . . #unzipdelhi PC : @dargahnizamuddinaulia #nizamuddin #dargah #mausoleum #tomb #similar #architecture #artist #mughalart #mughal #sufi #lockdownstories #localguides #lockdown #lockdown2020 #corona #covid_19 #emperor #emptystreets #empty #culture #Delhigram #delhi #olddelhi #delhidiaries #delhi_igers #delhibloggers #storytelling #storiesuntold #khilji

Taj Mahal - Widely considered one of the most beautiful buildings ever created. The exquisite marble structure in Agra, India, is a mausoleum, an enduring monument to the love of a husband for his favorite wife. It's also an eternal testament to the artistic and scientific accomplishments of a wealthy empire. #throwback #2020 #sevenwondersoftheworld #7wondersoftheworld #sevenwonders #new7wonders #new7wondersoftheworld #unesco #bucketlist #taj #mahal #tajmahal #mausoleum #mughal #shahjahan #mumtajmahal #whitemarble #architecture #agra #uttarpradesh #india #theworld #aroundtheworld #lifeatsea #shiplife

The Iconic Bejeweled Taj Mahal .... 🕌 Malachite , jade , lapis , amber , turquoise, ruby , cat’s eye , marble .. to name just a few of the 40 precious stones used for the flower inlays that decorate the entire mausoleum . The more rare stones were brought from some very far-flung areas: malachite from Russia, jade from Kashgar in China, turquoise from Tibet. From as far west as the Nile Valley came cat’s eyes (also known as ‘lahsunia’); from the east, in Burma, came yellow amber. Lapis-lazuli were brought from Afghanistan, rubies from Sri Lanka. Other stones—orange-red cornelian, jasper, grass-green chrysolite, and deep blue (or green) heliotrope—were also procured. No wonder it took 20 years to complete . Devastatingly Lapis was pried our during the 1857 rebellion by invading Jats and colonial Brits and later had to be restored . Inlay close ups.. 👉🏻 #iconic #mausoleum preciousstones #gems #mughalarchitecture #shajahan #worldheritage #travels #adventure #jewellerytrails #nush

. ✔️ دوستان خوبم سلام. این جا خانه ی نظام الاسلام یا هتل کریاسه. اگه گذرتون به محله ی پشت مسجد شاه افتاده باشه، حتما دیوار کاه گلی و پنجره های متعدد این خانه رو رو به روی گنبد بزرگ تر مسجد شاه دیدید. . ✔️ ساختار های هم شکل و هم رنگ متعدد و سادگی این خانه من رو یاد دو تا جمله می اندازند، یکی «زیبایی در سادگیست.» از افلاطون و اون یکی «عقل تکرار را نمی پسندد اما احساس تکرار را دوست دارد.» از دکتر شریعتی. البته از نمای مسجد شاه و کاخ عالی قاپو از حیاط و بام این خانه و احساس خوبی که با شنیدن صدای آرامش بخش آب و دیدن زیبایی دو حوضش بمون دست می ده هم نباید غافل شد. 😍 . ✔️ این خانه متعلق به نظام الاسلام میرزا محمد دستجردی ملقب به میرزا محمد معلم بود که تو قیام مشروطه ی اهالی اصفهان نقش تعیین کننده ای داشت. این خانه که حدود 150 سال قدمت داره، یکی از پایگاه های اصلی مشروطه خواهان اصفهان بود. به این خانه، خانه ی مجد هم گفته می شه؛ به خاطر این که مجدالاسلام فرزند ارشد نظام الاسلام و عضو مجلس شورای ملی هم سال­ ها ساکنش بوده.

Hinter diesem Bronzetor mit einem Sternzeichenrelief zum neuen Mausoleum auf der Rosenhöhe von Franz Naager verbergen sich vier Sarkophage. Einer davon ist von der Großherzogin Alice , die Tochter von Queen Victoria. Alice war die Ideengeberin für die Künstlerkolonie auf der Mathildenhöhe, die ihr Sohn Ernst Ludwig verwirklichte. Ebenso brachte sie für den damaligen Stand die Stadt Darmstadt auf einen hohen Hygienestandard, und sorgte so besonders für die Wöchnerin. Sie engagiert sich sehr für die öffentliche Gesundheitspflege. Sie gründete auch mit Luise Büchner einen Frauenverein. Nachdem Alice ihre an Diphterie erkrankten Kinder pflegte, erkrankte sie selbst im Alter von 35 Jahren und starb daran. Auf ihrem Marmor Sarkophag liegt sie mit ihrer an Diphtherie gestorbenen kleinen Tochter Marie im Arm geschaffen aus weißem Marmor 😢 #alice #marmor #marie #darmstadtrosenhöhe #darmstadt #kultur #hessen #mausoleum #grossherzogernstludwig #mathildenhöhe #sarkophag #naager #sternzeichen #christlich #hygiene #medizin #diphterie #wchnerinnenstation #wchnerin #
