Fatepur Sikri was founded as the capital of the Mughal Empire in 1571 by Emperor Akbar. It served this role from 1571 to 1585, when Akbar abandoned it due to a campaign in Punjab and it was later completely abandoned in 1610. This is a view of the palace courtyard and Diwan-i-Khas.

Sanjo Cho is suburban district of south west Takamatsu in Japan. We have visited our friends there on a number of occasions and this path took us across the railway to Youmetown which was a large out of town shopping mall.

This beautiful temple in northern Thailand was a place of pilgrimage and there was a steady stream of visitors quietly coming forward to make an offering or to say a silent prayer.
