Yes Rajesh one of the most beautiful structures...but building a replica just next to it is craziness...not sure whos idea was it...Its wierd to re-create a brilliant structure.....no one likes to see a re-created Taj Mahal next to the original one.....or for that matter anywhere in India.....

The Building is truly a work of Art
the clouds that form a backdrop are perfect...almost as if you ordered them to be placed there.
Well Done !!!

Very stylish.

Wonderful shot rajesh! I hope the newly built Tamil Nadu Secretariat is also one of the largest in India. Somehow I don’t feel happy about new Secretariat which looks trendy, but lacks much architecture design.

This is a very intricate and elegant building. Thanks for sharing. I have heard that there's a housing development in Bangalore that looks very much like houses in Santa Barbara, California. Is that true?
