Chalo Champaner

Anushka the explorer decided to rediscover the charm of Champaner with her amma and her grand parents in tow . . .


Be it the interesting narration of Mr Joshi or the Jodha Akbar type armour rock formation or the jewel/ ‘concrete’ grinder the place was not a let down


Jama Masjid proved why Champaner deserved its World Heritage status with its imposing minars, lovely entrance and the jharokha style carvings and extensive pillars

The beautiful jali screen with no motif repeated, the Hindu workmen introducing the lotus and kalash into the muslim architecture slyly, the romantic “paheli” type water tank, the arches with their balancing act, the Hawa Mahal, the catapult cannons. . . Still so much to discover

Anush is lucky to visit so many places at such a young age...
