“Evermore in the world is this marvelous balance of beauty and disgust, magnificence and rats.”
(Ralph Waldo Emerson – American Poet and Essayist, 1803-1882)

Those words could echo in a few streets of Varanasi (Benaras) but the dreams always overpower for those who want to see the stars through the souls of those who walk there…
I always enjoy to see this building which has an amazing architecture blending so many influences whenever I go from Hathua Market to Nai Sarak in Ramakant Nagar.
There many houses and constructions like this one are holding traces of the splendor of the past when the Eternal city was bathing in opulence and magnificence…

  1. It’s a functionalism style building of 1920-x???

  2. designldg Says:

    It was made as a building with several apartments and probably in the 20’s.

  3. Why this building looked so abandoned? I think that it was built for people who are not low income.
