Notice the people in the upper right hand- it gives some perspective on this combination well and temple complex in central India. known as a step well because in contained access to the very lower reaches of the well via steps- it also housed a temple dedicated to Ganesha (the Hindu god who manifests as an elephant.)
below is the Jamid Mosque in Delhi India- said to be one of the largest in the world
next in Myanmar- temples on the Bagan plains and then a buddha from inside one of the 4400 temples on the plains of Bagan (an area the size of Manhattan - per Lonely Planet)
and another from Myanmar- this from the Shwedagon Pagoda in Rangoon.
and since I accessed the India photos I found some great ones that bring back special memories- and will probably post some of those stories later.
