Gates of Empire, Gates of Freedom —————
A view of the iconic Lahore Gate at the Red Fort in Delhi, the seat of the Mughal Empire from 1639 to 1856. It served as an army garrison of the British Raj from 1857 until 1947, when the first Flag of an independent India was hoisted atop the gate.

India travel journal - Humayun’s Tomb complex; Besides the main tomb enclosure of Humayun, several smaller monuments dot the pathway leading up to it, from the main entrance in the West, including one that even pre-dates the main tomb itself, by twenty years; it is the tomb complex of Isa Khan Niyazi, an Afghan noble in Sher Shah Suri's court of the Suri dynasty, who fought against the Mughals, constructed in 1547 CE

📍Pamukkale, Turkey 🇹🇷 💌 The crowds quietened as the day got darker and I’m glad I stayed back to watch the mesmerising sunset as the orange hues were reflected off the white cliffs and calcium-rich springs of Pamukkale - also known as the Cotton Castle.
Tips:
▫️Allocate a few hours to explore this vast world heritage site which is adjacent to the ancient city of Hierapolis.
▫️It can get pretty hot in the summer and most of the site is an open field so an umbrella / hat might yield some comfort in the sweltering heat.
▫️Dipping in the cotton cliff pools is incl. in the entry tix but swimming in the Ancient Pool is an extra 30ish Liras. Bring your own towel or you would have to buy one from the Ancient Pool shops. ▫️There is an official closing time / last entry which differs seasonally but you’re free to roam and stay even when darkness falls. It’s so calm, cool and possibly romantic. •

Petra and Little Petra, Jordan - The World Heritage Site
.
1. The entrance to the narrow passage between cliffs to the tomb in Petra
2,3. The color of the cliffs, that contain the mineral that makes its color so beautiful
4. The Petra
5. Kids at Petra
6. Sunset on our way out from the site
.
7-10. Little Petra. Consider our group as the luckiest Indonesian group to be in Little Petra.
.
The least favorable touristic place, yet beautiful. As it is named, the place is smaller compare to Petra, without not much color on the cliffs.

Tiles & mosaques...
Every turn of the corner of Khiva's Itchan Qala (inner fort) offers yet another intricately decorated palace or mausoleum.
I'll admit to wandering round in a daze & having no idea which is which or why or when etc but they are so beautiful I'm happy just wandering.
The bright tiles match the hot skies & the city looks immaculate. Even strolling through the back streets past renovation & digging works doesn't detract from the calm & peacefulness of Khiva.
It's been a restful couple of days rehydrating with fresh fruit juices inbetween meandering in the baking streets. Thanks Khiva!

Two Lamassu (lamasi) in the Assyrian style, albeit, of colossal proportions, stand at the eastern doorway of the Gate of All Nations, also known as the Gate of Xerxes, located in the ruins of the ancient city of Persepolis, 70 km northeast of the modern city of Shiraz in Fars Province, Iran.
In art, lamasi were depicted as hybrids, with bodies of either winged bulls or lions and heads of human males. The motif of a winged animal with a human head is common to the Near East, first recorded in Ebla (in modern day Syria) around 3000 BCE. The first distinct lamassu motif appeared in Assyria during the reign of Tiglath-Pileser II as a symbol of power.

[Three Parallel Rivers of Yunnan WHS - Laojunshan component, visited 18 Jun 2018]

Last week's adventure in southwestern Yunnan. Explored the mountains of Laojunshan to see this turtle shell patterns of the rocks. These are formed by repetitive thawing and freezing of ice combined with weathering effects. (Or for conspiracy theorists, the petrified brains of thousand aliens! :D)

Deep in the mountains of southwestern China, three of the world's longest rivers (Yangtze, Mekong, Salween) flows almost parallel with each other separated only by sound 18 km to 66 km at their closest parts. For millennia they carved the mountains with deep gorges of up to 3000 m producing scenic landscapes and high biodiversity.

The Three Parallel Rivers of Yunnan is one of the few WHS that's inscribed in all 4 natural criteria:
(1) Earth's History - the area displays the history of closing of Tethys Sea - the ancient sea separating the Indian and Eurasian plate - as recorded by its the diverse rock type.
(2) Ecological process - there is a mix of geological, topographic and climactic effects in the area with a mix of landscape diversity allowing full range of Paleartic biomes to develop.
(3) Superlative natural phenomena and scenic beauty - outstanding natural features ranging from glaciated mountains to scenic alpine landforms. (I only visited Laojunshan section which displays the turtle shell weathering of Danxia rocks.)
(4) Biodiversity and Treated species - the area is home of numerous endemic and protected species, being one of the most biologically diverse temperate regions on Earth.

I only explored 0.01% of the site. Will surely be back to visit other areas. Can't wait for next adventure!!! #yunnan #worldheritagesite

Church of the day is Jelling Church in Jutland western Denmark which together with the Jelling Mounds and Runic Stones were inscribed on the Unesco World Heritage List in 1994. The present Church is from 1100, build upon the remains of an older wooden church, probable as a mausoleum of one of the first kings of Denmark who prepared the danes for christianity.
Mural paintings from 1500 some of them in a bad condition that demanded re-creation. Painted glass, floor and colours in the room by artist Jørn Larsen.

I travelled across to the other side of the globe after watching a documentary about one the oldest human communities in South America. Here the cave paintings are dated as far back as 25 000 years ago. This not only challenges the classical theory of human migration from the Bering Strait some 15 000 years ago, but it opens up the exciting question of who were in South America before the Siberian Chukchis crossed over and down into the Americas.

カイディン帝廟の特徴。例えば1枚目の写真。これは帝廟の階段周りにあった柵なんだけど、百合の紋章(フランス王家)と十字を併せたような紋様になっている、かと思えば、2枚目の写真、ガイドさん曰く中部より南に勢力のあったチャム族(チャンパ王国の民)を意識してヒンドゥー紋様になっているのだそうだ。ベトナムって50以上の少数民族で構成された国家で、北部京族を中心に歴史としては語られることが多いけど、それぞれの民族に歴史がある。
お、漸く帝廟が見えてきた。
