Muktheswara temple
.
mukteshvara means "lord of freedom". the temple is dedicated to hindu god shiva. there are a number of sculptures of skeletal ascetics in teaching or meditation poses. some scholars correlate the role of the temple as a centre for tantric initiation with the name mukteshvara as a possible thesis.
.
according to tradition, barren women give birth to sons if they take a dip in the marichi kunda tank in the premises of the temple on the night before ashokashtami festival. .

Last friday was international women’s day – while many people were using it as a day of marching and demonstrations to push for greater gender equality, i thought i’d use it as an opportunity to talk about the woman who inspires me the most in my life – @anu.saya.
if a pure heart can inspire then that is what anu has done for me. she is my wife, but she is, of course, so much more than that. amongst her many roles in my life, she is my best friend, my rock when things are tough, my greatest source of entertainment, my biggest supporter, my comforter, and so many other things.
she is my life. i respect her a lot. she is my inspiration, my role model. of course she is my world 🌎

While scrollinng through our feed we came across the beautiful feed of @monumenthunter . he has captured dome of various monuments of delhi.
this one is at safdarjung’s tomb. picture and caption by @monumenthunter . please do check out his amazing feed. ❤️
.
. “safdarjung’s tomb with its bulbous dome and stained sandstone walls seems somehow flawed and degenerate…it at first sight looks wrong; its lines look somehow faulty, naggingly incorrect…half-way though the construction, the marble appears to have run out. prominent strips of inlay were left unfinished; awkward patches of pink sandstone intrude into the glistening white of the dome. the effect is like a courtier in a tatty second-hand livery: the intention grand, but the actual impression tawdry, almost ridiculous…inside the capitals have turned almost into cabbages as they curve and curl in vegetable convulsions. they throw up stamens and tendrils past the stalactite muqarnas and squinches, gripping and voluting towards the floral boss of the low inner dome…the spirit is fecund, baccahanalian, almost orgiastic…like some elderly courtesan, the tomb tries to mask its imperfections beneath thick layers of make-up; its excesses of ornament are worn like over-applied rouge. even the little mosque to the side of the gate has a whiff of degeneracy about it; its three domes are flirtatiously striped like the flared pyjamas of nautch girl; there is something voluptuous in its buxom curves.” – william dalrymple, renowned author-historian, “city of djinns: a year in delhi” .
