Old fort #WordlessWednesday 4


Madikeri Fort

Former glory

Present unkempt

Joining Esha Mookerjee Dutta for Wordless Wednesday



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


  2. 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.


  3. 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!


  4. 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. 🙂


  5. 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.
