Our World- Walled City

 This is the five centuries old wall of Bangalore city. It protected the citizens from attacks by invaders .
The doorway for the fortress has a tragic story of the chieftain's daughter-in-law sacrificing herself so that the door would stand strong.That happened centuries ago, and the wall has now disappeared except for the front part.
I thank the team of Our World Tuesday, which gives us a lot of interesting information about our world.


  1. It really looks so strong, like a fort. I just wouldn't be feeling safe inside though, i will get claustrophobic.

  2. Quite wall ~ wonderful photography ~~ namaste, (A Creative Harbor)

  3. Wonderful captures and a tragic story indeed! Coming from such a "young" country, I always amazed by the history of other countries!! Great post for the day!
