K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge: Architecture

In the center of the city of Brighton, you will see a huge and prominent building called Royal Pavilion, which once served as a Military hospital for Indians during the First World War. When I saw I was reminded of the Golconda Fort and other Mughal Palaces in India, the ones I have been were in Hyderabad. This Royal Pavilion has a Mughal and Islamic Architectural elements to it and is very evident from its exterior. My friend told me that the place is ornate, but I wasn’t interested to see it that day. Perhaps next time. The exterior was designed by John Nash, a British architect.

      It was. If only I could have seen the interiors. They are more ornate I heard

    Great photo of a beautiful building. The inside is indeed amazing, I’ve been round it a couple of times and been to a couple of shows there, too.
    Thank you so much for participating in the challenge.

      Thank you, Dale 🙂 Next time I should make a visit inside. Since it was a Saturday, the crowd was too much and the sun had just come out after rains. So I preferred to be outside 😉

    Great post, KG! I’d also be interested in seeing any interior shots you take if you return. I can understand not wanting to deal with crowds AND taking advantage of the sun after rain. Good decision.

      Thank you, K’Lee 🙂 Am sure I will be going back there. Missed most of Brighton’s places because of rain. So I have been promised another trip 😉 But I am not sure if we are allowed to take pictures of the interiors. Most of these old palaces do not allow that. Have faced that in Spain. Let’s see.

        It makes sense from the preservation perspective. Maybe simply enjoying it asthetically is enough.

      Thank you, Linda 🙂 I was glad to have people not walk in my path for a second or two. It was quite crowded.

    The forts of Golconda are so beautiful. I read about them in a science magazine, their architecture is amazing and the designs of Mughal era is so splendidly done. Nice capture. ❤

      Thank you 🙂 I found some similarities between the Golconda Fort and Mayan Pyramids of Mexico and that is something I was in awe of.

          I think I did it in my travel blog about it because I did visit the Pyramids first and then the Fort. Might have to dig a bit. Will reply to this comment with the link later. 🙂
