Palace on the Ganga – Art in Architecture

September 05, 2016

 

Just pictures of a lovely place that has the atmosphere of serenity and quietude.

The opulence is in the atmosphere created – rather than in its fixtures.

Everything here is just right – just enough peace to allow deep contemplation – just enough stimulation from the flowing river to keep one from getting bored – just enough silence to remain undisturbed – just enough chirping from the birds at sunrise and sunset to make one aware of the passage of time – just enough openness to capture the vastness of the universe and just enough beauty in the sunrise to make one grateful to that universe …….

I could easily find moksh here!
