    Wish it was maintained well. We are losing a lot of our beautiful historical buildings because of this. Well written. Short and strong.

  4. We went to Madikeri in 2016. I remember this Fort, it was in a shabby condition. But I loved the other two tombs in Madikeri and that sunset point was also good. I used to enjoy the evening walk in Madikeri and Coorgi cuisine is excellent. The smell of coffee and spices used to follow us everywhere. Beautiful place.

  5. I liked that – former glory, present unkempt.
    Why is it that most of Indian heritage structures lie in a state of neglect? There’s one fort near my place which has some history attached to it, but today is just four walls in a pathetic state. How wonderful it would be if these structures get the face lift they deserve and a portion of history gets preserved beautifully for the future to see!

    So glad to see you join #WW, Anamika! I loved the image and the caption very much. So thought-provoking as only you could do! Brevity makes the words more emphatic, I think. I pondered over the image and wondered why is it that we no longer value our heritage buildings! I see it happening everywhere. Looking forward to your #WW pics every week now. 🙂

    This is sad. India has such magnificent old structures that stand testimony to our ancient civilisation, a time when the rest of the world was still finding its feet. And yet we don’t do enough to preserve it.

  11. It has an eerie feel to it. I wonder how beautiful and lively it was in its former days.

    Beautiful capture, though.
