Jaisalmer by Moonlight
Full Moon nightscape of Rajasthan, the largest state of India, known as the Land of Kings. The three bright stars of the Summer Triangle appear in the sky. On the Earth is Bada Bagh (Big Garden); a garden complex near the city of Jaisalmer. It contains a set of royal cenotaphs, or chhatris of Maharajas (Chhatris are elevated, dome-shaped pavilions; an important element in Indian architecture). Click on the second photo to see another nightscape view of the region made from Fort Rajwada Hotel. In the sky are winter constellations rising over the east.
