    I ve visited few of them and they are indeed very beautiful. What I found very impressive about the Taj Mahal is the pattern engraved on its wall. Whoever did the work must be highly skilled. I also enjoyed the peaceful atmosphere that exist at the Lotus temple

    Good to know that you visited some of these Historical Monuments. I visited The Taj and Mysore Palace. Definitely Temple architecture is a highly skilled Job.

    I am yet to visit Taj Majal .but seen most of the ones from Karnataka and Charminar which although is beautifully is badly maintained. Shops all round the place making it look less like a monument and more like a market place. The Tanjore temple and the Mahabalipuram temple are really beautiful 


    Pay no mind to those who talk behind your back, it simply means that you are two steps ahead !!!

    Yes, CharMinar;s beauty is marred by urbanization and the State Government's negligence. I had seen Mahabalipuram. I was lucky to see The Taj, one of the Seven wonders of the Wold.

    I have also visited a few historical monuments and I enjoyed seeing them so closely. I have seen Taj Mahal, Mysore palace, Lotus Temple, Hawa Mahal, Qutab Minar, Sanchi Stupa and Ajanta Ellora Caves while travelling to various cities. The condition of these historical monuments make me feel very sad. They are not maintained very effectively. A few people take liberty of messing up these historical monuments at their own will whenever they want to. Apart from all these things, I loved visiting the famous historical monuments of India.

    Many historical temples in India are real works of art but the visit is totally ruined by the perennially "begging" staff members and shopkeepers. For tye visitor it is faith but for the keepers it is commerce. Both missions are different hence no sync in visiting.

    Its really sad to see how people ve messed up the monuments. Its disgusting to see their names written, hearts carved, + signs and what not!! Some people seriously do not know the importance of historical monuments.

    @ Usha,

    Is charminar located right at the centre of market place? Once while attending a meeting at Hyderabad, our driver mentioned that we were then passing through a historical monument but I was surprised to see people selling things and seems to be a very busy market. I didn't pay mch attention at that time. But if that was charminar, i m shock at how it is maintained

    I lived in Hyderabad. Yes Charminar that was constructed 1591 CE is a monument and Mosque located in Hyderabad, Telangana state. Now, the place has become cluttered with several big and small shops. presently, Telangana Government has neglected about its maintenance. its ancient look has faded.

    Yes it is the very same one and I had similar thoughts when I visited it. The first time I visited Hyderabad was in the nineties an it was slightly better in that, there were fewer shops . But the last time I saw it , it looks so cluttered and congested that a couple of people who were visiting for the first time were commenting that there were several  such buildings in Lucknow and even in old parts of Mumbai , as cluttered ! The previous govts of  Andhra Pradesh state have thoroughly neglected the place which is actually very beautiful..
