Friday Skywatch – Sunrise/ Shahid Smaarak

For a change, I’m not posting any picture clicked from/clicked of hill.

The pictures I’m sharing this week were clicked at Shahid Smaarak, Jaipur – Memorial built-in the memory of Martyrs. It’s a great place to click pictures in late evening, the light effects are great with pink and violet dominating the colors. This memorial is built using pink sandstone which is found in abundance in Rajasthan, especially in Karuali and Dholpur area.

The first picture captures interesting sun rays formed by clouds when the Sun is just rising.

The next picture shows Sun ascending behind the memorial. Since the sports stadium is located right behind Shahid Smaarak, one can see the floodlights in the background.

    1. ha ha! I’m sure they must be expecting someone who’s regular visitor! BellyByte, its even more interesting to watch a different sunrise, at same spot, same time but on different dates.


    1. balroop! I feel that watching sunrise is spirituous experience. Most people believe spiritual experience has something to do with religion or religious practices, I disagree with them! Nature is the most potent force we have around us. start watching sunrise for few days, you’ll be a new person!
