Ajmer fort where His Majesty the Emperor Jahangir of India and all her lands granted audience to Thomas Roe, circa 1615 (? 1616), Ambassador of King James I of England, and granted permission to trade. A decision that set of a domino chain of events, and thus was a subcontinent lost
The window where Emperor Jahangir granted audience

Barli inscription. circa 443 BC. 

Goosebumps… the diary entry from Thomas Roe’s journal --http://www.ibiblio.org/britishraj/Jackson9/chapter11.html

Barli inscriptions circa 443 BC. Believed to be amongst the oldest in India (and the world?).

Peace at the shrine. Feel blessed.

Sunday, the Bamboo trail, SGNP. Heavenly!
