Photographer's Note

Hooghly Imambara.
Imambara literally means the residence of the Imam, but In the Indian subcontinent, the word stands for a house or an assembly hall built by the Shiites for observing Muharram. Build in the memory of the great philanthropist Hazi Muhammad Mohsin, the imposing structure was took 20 years to build and was completed in 1861.
Designed by architect Keramtulla Khan,two 85 feet high towers and are each approachable by a set of 152 stairs and offers spectacular views.
This photo is taken from one of the towers.i felt nostalgic towards the typical curve and the lines and the backdrop historical view..its all about"nawabi"
Hope you like this.thank you.have a nice weekend.
