architecture 100: India’s amazing buildings

Looking back at my past blog posts, I realize that I tend to write quite a bit…most posts easily cross the 1200 word mark. But this time I’m going to let the pictures speak for themselves. Northern India has a rich and diverse history that is reflected in its architecture, both old and new. Here are pictures of some of my favorite buildings. I hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I have.
