L Town sights


I've been living in this city off and on for the last ten months and have yet to see the fun and exciting touristy sights, until the other day. This used to be the capitol of the Nawab kingdom, between the fall of the Mughal empire and the British occupation, and there are plenty of palaces, mosques, gardens and other places to see. The first is from the palace roof looking at the mosque and part of the courtyard.

Here's the main gate, behind the motorcycle.

These are the steps leading down to the queen's pool, whose water level rises and falls with the water table and is seven stories from top to bottom

The entire top 3-4 floors of the palace is a labyrinth and it's almost impossible to get out without a guide.

And here's just a normal sign on one of the walls.

Cool pics! I definitely want to come and see that stuff sometime! Looks awesome!

You know, I think they should add "urinate" to that last sign. :)

Haha! Great sign picture. Way to set the context. That place is so cool! I wish we saw that when we came to L town!

What an awesome trip! You've got some great pics. I especially like the "Don't spit" sign. We need something like that here only it should say,"Please don't expose yourself or urinate in open, public places".
