A night shot at of the Tidal Basin provides a nearly perfect reflection of the Jefferson Memorial. The memorial was designed by John Russell Pope in 1925 and resembles the Pantheon in Rome, an adaptation of Neoclassical architecture favored by Thomas Jefferson himself. 📷: @zackowicz #MyDCcool

Amazing temple complex in 🎎 village Nichar of Kinnaur, Himachal Pradesh. Himachal is entirely mountainous and covered with cedar and pine, belongs to the wooden #cultural sphere. Hindu #temples in this state were made in a unique #wooden structure, like timber mosques in #Kashmir. Among the wooden buildings in #HimachalPradesh, the most interesting ones are ‘Square-Tower’ type temples. These high rise temple's are completely different from other #Hindu temples in #India. While it is common in the entire #Himachal region that horizontally piled up #timber and #stone makes a wall in a striped pattern of a square tower structure, walls reached high up, produced overhanging #balconies around the top floor, and culminated in a gambrel roof on the top covered with stone slate. Another great #enigma in the wooden #architecture in Himachal is the concave curve of the roofs. There are researchers who suppose that it is a Chinese influence, but I cannot agree, because roofs in the surrounding areas of Nepal, Kashmir, and western Himachal Pradesh are all rectilinear. The origin of the concave curve of roofs would not reside in the influence of outer architecture but in the #nature of Himachal Pradesh. That is, the concave curve of #cedar trees might have been reflected in #architectural forms.  Ceder is also called #Deodar, which derives from Devadara in #Sanskrit, meaning #divine tree, having been venerated since #ancient times. Can it be surmised that the people living in this #Himalayan region, always surrounded by the #sacred #trees, adopted the cedar elegant concave curve into the roofs of their #houses and temples? . 📷 from @pankaj_chaaras . #ShimlaLife #mondaymotivation #Nichar #Kinnaur #neverstopexploring
