'Agrasen Ki Baoli' also known as 'Ugrasen Ki Baoli' is a beautiful monument in the heart of the capital city New Delhi. Agrasen Ki Baoli, central Delhi’s oldest monument, remains one the best preserved baolis of Delhi. It is located in the narrow Hailey Lane, off Hailey Road, near Connaught Place. Here are the few glimpses through my lens, I hope you enjoy them. :)
Jantar Mantar is an observatory built in 1724, by a Hindu king Sawai Jai Singh II at India's capital city New Delhi. Now obsolete, the observatory lies in the center of a pleasant park surrounded by high-rises. It consists of 13 architectural astronomy instruments.

Couple of weeks ago, it was just a regular summer morning & I planned to take a little walk in New Delhi's Lodhi Gardens. Place has a little pool where Geese & ducks hang around & it always is a beautiful view in the morning. I was walking across the park to reach to the pool & I couldn't help but notice these two fully bloomed pink bougainvillea trees in the middle of the garden. It was a breathtaking site & I had to capture it. Here are some of the pictures, do enjoy :)
"A journey of a thousand miles begins with a fabulous pair of shoes." Author of this quote is unknown to me but somehow I find these lines perfect to express my thoughts behind making of this triptych last night.
It's the second week of May & Delhi streets & parks are colored with blooming Golden shower, Queen's crape-myrtle & Royal poinciana trees & it's a nature's way of telling me that no matter how much I dislike Indian summer there will be moments when I would totally adore it.
I had been capturing these wonderful flowering trees for the whole last week & then I realised I have quite a collection which I won't be able to share in one blog so I have decided to color this blog yellow :) but hey! don't forget to check out my future posts because for next couple of weeks I will keep sharing pictures of Pink Queen's crape-myrtle, Orange Royal poinciana & many more Golden shower trees. For now enjoy these yellow beauties :)
Though I have captured these images in New Delhi, this tree is very common all over the India & are signs of a virtuous summer in our beautiful country. Wishing you all a good week ahead & do come back to checkout my upcoming photo blogs on the other blossoming summer trees of New Delhi.
I was using a combination of whole spices like coriander seeds, dry red chilies, peppercorns, cinnamomum tamala (tej patta), cumin seeds, green cardamom etc. to prepare curry at home & suddenly realized that it looks quite photogenic. :)
