“There are men whose idea of life is tactic, who long for its continuation after death only because of their wish for permanence and not perfection; they love to imagine that the things to which they are accustomed will persist for ever.
They complete.”
(Rabindranath Tagore – Indian author, Nobel Prize of Literature in 1913, 1861-1941)

This is a view from a window of the Jahangiri Mahal in Orchha which is located in the Indian state of Madhya Pradesh.
The Jahangir Mahal is an example of Rajput Bundela architecture, it was built by the Bundela king Bir Singh Deo and named after the Mughal emperor Jahangir who spent one night here.
It was during this period that Orchha reaches its height and the many extant palaces are a reminder of its architectural glory.
