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.

  1. 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.

    1. 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 😉

  2. 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.

    1. 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.

        1. 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. 🙂
