On Feb 21, 1598, Boris Godunov became the #tsar of #Russia, ending the Rurik Dynasty. He had been the virtual ruler after the death of Ivan the Terrible. Godunov proved to be capable: during his reign, relations with the West strengthened and the Russian Orthodox Church was recognized as a patriarchate. But it also ushered in the Time of Troubles with emergence of False Dmitry's, which would ultimately lead to the establishment of the Romanov Dynasty.
Godunov was the subject of a play by #Pushkin and an opera by #Mussorgsky.
He is buried at the Trinity Lavra of St. Sergius #monastery in the town of #SergiyevPosad, an easy day trip from #Moscow.

In this photo, Assumption #Cathedral is seen on right under the brooding Russian sky with its blue and golden onion domes. Near the cathedral entrance is the modest Gudonov Family #Mausoleum.

The word chaitya has its roots in sanskrit chita ~ meaning a pyre or a pile of ashes 🔥

This is Ajanta Cave 10. Thought to be the oldest chaitya hall at Ajanta (2nd century BC). During the early hinayana period, stupa is the centrepiece and no idols are revered 🤲

Hike to the nearest boulder and witness the amazing sunset. A pinch of THC definitely helps.

Closeup of Maison des Esclave, i.e. House of Slaves, Goree Island, just off the coast of Dakar, Senegal, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, largely due to its colonial history (first colonial settlement was about 1450). This photo show clearly that the “House of Slaves” was, indeed, a prison for those enslaved. ...

la Superluna dà spettacolo nei cieli d'Europa. Così vicina alla Terra non si era mai presentata. Ma perché una luna piena così grande? Perché nella notte tra il 19 e il 20 febbraio, il satellite si trova 'solo' a 356.761 chilometri dal nostro pianeta, 30mila in meno del solito: in termini tecnici si dice che è nel perigeo, cioè nel punto di minima distanza dalla Terra. All'occhio risulta un diametro del 14% più grande rispetto a quando l'astro si trova nel punto più lontano e una luminosità maggiore del 30%

The Vittala Temple is also known as Shri Vijaya Vitthala Temple. It is dedicated to Lord Vitthala, an incarnation of Lord Vishnu. An idol of Vitthala-Vishnu was enshrined in the temple. Legend has it that the temple was built as an abode for Lord Vishnu in his Vitthala form. However, the Lord had found the temple to be too grand for his use and had returned to live in his own humble home.

In the Maison des Esclave, i.e. House of Slaves, Goree Island, just off the coast of Dakar, Senegal, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, largely due to its colonial history (first colonial settlement was about 1450). The island was involved in the slave trade for hundreds of years. It remains as a sober reminder of our past. In this photo, I am standing near “the door of no return” looking toward the entrance of the building. This view is likely the same one that thousands, tens of thousands, perhaps hundreds of thousands, may have had before stepping off of Africa for the last times.

Hoi An, you will always have a special place in my heart. My most favourite place in Vietnam. Plastered with yellow walls throughout, this small town the most picturesque place. .
Hoi An has a very well preserved Ancient town which houses one of the most artistic cafes, restaurants, art studios and local markets. It also has a very nice night market where you can eat all you want Vietnamese street food. .
If you are in Vietnam do not miss out on this beauty. A UNESCO World Heritage site and one of the best fashion hubs of this country. This postcard by @rehahn_photography, was written and posted to a friend back in India.

The Kiva Kumbh Mela 2019🕉️🙏🏻.
.
.
What an opportunity and saubhagya (fortune) to see an occasion of a Holy Hindu mega giant gathering to offer our devotion to Maa Gange and feel the foremost affection to our deities in this  Holy month of Magh.
.
.
The largest religious-cultural festival in the world. We as a pilgrims have come here to witness the Sangam of holy rivers of Maa Ganga, Yamuna  and Saraswati. For me, it was an exceptional experience having been part of this Intangible Heritage of Humanity recognised by the UNESCO.
.
.
Our Hindu religion is so flexible and so meaningful that no such extreme flexibility will be found in any other religion. Our religion which provides education on loving everyone and provide extreme freedom of thoughts, which promotes love, peace, compassion, connection among human beings as well as all living beings. I'm quite delightful to say that I'm a proud Hindu.
