Victoria Memorial - Reflections 2!!
Victoria Memorial in Kolkata is a very famous landmark. covering an expansive area, this structure is very grand. It is quite a contrast to the Maidan bang opposite it, in the sense that the Memorial complex is so serene, so calm. The gardens in the complex, the silent waters, the exotic flowers planted all around, the grand trees sans leaves, is a treat for sore eyes. Keep aside atleast a couple of hours to fully experience the monument and the surroundings.
I had taken another refection shot of this structure titled Victoria Memorial - Reflections This time around, the sun was setting and the atmosphere was slowly turning dark at the Victoria Memorial. The lights had come up. The placid water body seemed like a mirror, reflecting the bronze statue of the Late Earl of Minto, Viceroy and Governor General of India (1905-1910).
