I just visited a 1000 year old Saas-Bahu temple in Udaipur to launch my show Ek Bhram- Sarvagun Sampanna and explored the rich culture taking back a mesmerizing experience for life! . I would urge both temples to be pinned to India's heritage map! #Repost @amitabhbachchan with @make_repost ・・・ About 1000 years ago, our ancestors built these beautiful twin Saas Bahu Temples dedicated to Lord Vishnu in his Padmanabha form near the Gwalior fort, and I want us to get to know them better. I, Amitabh Bachchan take pleasure in pinning these temples to the Heritage Map of India.

This ugly piece of rust is a coal scuttle that was left behind at a German divisional headquarters in Arnhem. We found this among numerous other objects in a closed context during archaeological research exactly a year ago. The damage has been inflicted by the severe artillery bombardments of April 1945, shortly before the combined Canadian and British forces crossed the river IJssel to expel the remaining Germans from the ghost city of Arnhem. This object remains as a an eye witness of those last moments of war in that city, which stories haven't been told that often. . . . . .

Ultimately, Inquisition was not the best Jack Howard adventure - it had some great archaeological moments, but the conflict was resolved too easily - but it is still a far sight better than the competition. #archaeology #adventure #holygrail #bookreview https://t.co/bUHja9fM2T

Funerary monument to the Court of Harcourt, Notre Dame Cathedral. A lingering souvenir from the baroque era as it has the dead featured.

Nell’era dei comizi via social ascoltare il programma elettorale di un Giggino in salsa caesar è stato troppo sfizioso. Questo nobiluomo è Quinto Arrio Serio e come da copione alla fine del suo comizio ha offerto a tutti i presenti una cena elettorale: un banchetto a base di giochi gladiatori, spettacoli, musiche e danze antiche. Mò ragazzi non mi fate fare brutta figura, gli ho promesso i voti di tutti i miei (pochi) followers in cambio di passare le selezioni nel concorso da centurione! ⚔️ quindi votatelo! 😂 • Avete mai assistito ad un comizio in maschera?

The Great Torc. What manner of man do you think wore it? I would love to know who wore this; imagine a great children with gold and silver armbands, intricate brooches, colourful garments, guilted sword and shield, and this magnificent torc about his neck. Or maybe it was his greatest piece of wealth, maybe everything else was simpler, and this was his greatest treasure, a treasure he hid with others, and never returned to reclaim it. • #contemplationsofahistorynerd #britismuseum #gold #celtic #torc #archaeology #britain #jewellery #ancient #medieval #ironage #history #historical #fantasy #mythical #photography #spring #adventure #uk #england #greatbritain #merlinsstudy

Today we hiked along the antique Roman aqueduct in the Eifel mountains. We started from its very beginning. In fact, most of it is still intact as it‘s buried underground - except on some excavated spots, like here near Castle Dalbenden. An astonishing feat of Roman workmanship, this aqueduct goes through mountains, hills and fields for a hundred kilometers!

Among the myriad attractions found in Guatemala’s Petén region are the ruins of thousands of ancient Maya cities. Among the most well-known are El Mirador (first photo) and Tikal. Recent technological advances using lasers have allowed archaeologists to map out areas of settlement still covered by dense jungle in Guatemala’s Maya Biosphere Reserve. This new Lidar technology allows scientists to essentially see through the jungle canopy to the man-made structures below. New discoveries are being made, even in sites that have been previously excavated, like Tikal. Who knows what new discoveries will be made in the coming years? #archaeology #guatemala #aerial #drone #guatemala #peten #natgeotravel #agameoftones #djimavicpro #history #geography #travelgram #instatravel #latergram #wanderlust #letsgosomewhere #perhapsyouneedalittleguatemala #explorandoguatemala #guatemalaimpresionante #quepeladoguate #maya #mayan #antiquities at Petén Department

The Scribe This sculpture was found at the Mayan archaeological site Mayapan and dates to the Late Post Classic Period (~ AD 1250 - 1450). It depicts the Mayan Howler Monkey God. He is a god of art and a patron of the artisans (particularly writers and musicians). He is depicted here as a scribe. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ To editorialize, I think he's probably also the god of prelim week. If writing with this exact expression on my face doesn't encapsulate this week, I don't know what does.

A lovely devata from the Banteay Chhmar temple 😍🙏 • Unfortunately it’s quite rare to find decent examples of these more elaborate style devatas at Banteay Chhmar these days... most of them have been looted or vandalized beyond recognition, even the generic styles of devata are few and far between... although I do believe there could be a few of the elaborate ones hiding beneath the many piles of collapsed stones at the temple... • The Banteay Chhmar temple dates to the late 12th - early 13th century... Bayon style...

💡Mediaeval and ottoman baths combine the functionality and architectural features from the Roman thermae and the Byzantine baths with the Arab and Ottoman tradition of steam bathing. 🛀🏽The Chrysopolitissa bath was part of a larger complex built during the Medieval period and modified in later times. It consists of two domed rooms and two smaller rooms with a barrel vault roof placed on the long sides of a narrow entrance hall. So, what are your plans for this weekend?☺️ We hope we brought you closer to our shared heritage. ☺️ #baths #ottoman #roman #medieval #Cyprus #Paphos #archaeology #architecture #UNDP #EU #UNDPinCyprus #unite4heritage #oursharedheritage #peace #culturalheritage #heritage #heritage4generations #photography #workingtogether #buildinpeace people #living_europe #art #wikilovesmonuments #WLM #IgWorldClub at Cyprus

🔘EL CASTILLO, CHICHEN ITZÁ🔘 ⚫El Castillo (hSpanish for "the castle"), also known as the Temple of Kukulcan (or sometimes Kukulkan), is a Mesoamerican step-pyramid that dominates the center of the Chichen Itza archaeological site in the Mexican state of Yucatán. The building is more formally designated by archaeologists as Chichen Itza Structure 5B18. . ⚫Constructed : 8th–12th century. ⚫Type : Mesoamerican Step pyramid. ⚫Material : limestone. ⚫Height : 24 m (79 ft), without temple 30 m (98 ft), with temple. . ⚫Built by the pre-Columbian Maya civilization sometime between the 9th and 12th centuries CE or AD, El Castillo served as a temple to the god Kukulkan, the Yucatec Maya Feathered Serpent deity closely related to the god Quetzalcoatl known to the Aztecs and other central Mexican cultures of the Postclassic period. . ⚫The pyramid consists of a series of square terraces with stairways up each of the four sides to the temple on top. Sculptures of plumed serpents run down the sides of the northern balustrade. Around the spring and autumn equinoxes, the late afternoon sun strikes off the northwest corner of the pyramid and casts a series of triangular shadows against the northwest balustrade, creating the illusion of a feathered serpent "crawling" down the pyramid. ⚫The event has been very popular and is witnessed by thousands of visitors at the spring equinox, but it is questionable whether it is a result of a purposeful design, because the light-and-shadow effect can be observed, without major changes, during several weeks around the equinoxes. Each of the pyramid's four sides has around 91 steps which, when added together and including the temple platform on top as the final "step",may produce a total of 365 steps (the steps on the south side of the pyramid are eroded) (which is equal to the number of days of the Haab' year). . ⚫The structure is 24 m (79 ft) high, plus an additional 6 m (20 ft) for the temple. The square base measures 55.3 m (181 ft) across. . 💠Follow me @ancient.scientist . #archaeology #maya #archeologia #arqueologia #egypt #archaeologie #antiquearchaeology #archaeological #ancientbuilding #archaeologicalsite #archeologicalsite #ancienta

Temple of Apollo | Corinth | Greece —————————————- The temple of Apollo at Corinth is one of the earliest Doric temples in the Greek mainland and one of the few standing Archaic Greek Temples in the world. The temple built around 560 B.C. It was peripteral, surrounded by a pteron of 42 monolithic, limestone columns, over 7 m. high. In the Roman period the Temple of Apollo was renovated in order to house the cult of the Emperor. In the Ottoman period a residence of the local Turkish Bey was built on top of its crepis. Today only seven standing columns of the western pteron and part of the crepis and its foundations are preserved. . . . . . #ancient #corinth #ancienthistory #ancientgreece #ancientarchitecture #ancientruins #ancientworld #archaeological #archaeologicalsite #archaeologist #archaeology #museum #archeologia #archeology #architecture #art #arthistory #fineart #greece #ig_greece #architecturephotography #history #explorer #explore #travelphotography #travel #temple #monument #landscape #landscapephotography
