Weekend Reflections- Music of Mandu

During the mid-term break, I visited the historic region of Malva, with its beautiful, ruined capital Mandu. In this pavilion, the great 14th century musician Tansen, is said to have given a concert, when the candles lighted by themselves. To alleviate the great heat, the queen Rupmati danced , which brought a huge storm, and everything cooled down.
You can see many wonderful photos at James' Weekend Reflections.
