The Lotus Temple, situated in New Delhi, India, is a Bahá'í House of Worship finished in 1986. Striking for its flowerlike shape, it serves as the Mother Temple of the Indian subcontinent and has turned into an unmistakable fascination in the city. The Lotus Temple has won various compositional honors and been highlighted in several daily paper and magazine articles.[1] Like all Bahá'í Houses of Worship, the Lotus Temple is interested in all, paying little heed to religion or some other capability. The building is made out of 27 unattached marble-clad "petals" orchestrated in groups of three to frame nine sides,[2][not in reference given] with nine entryways opening onto a focal lobby with tallness of marginally more than 40 metres[3] and a limit of 2,500 people.[4] A 2001 CNN report alluded to it as the most went by working in the world.[5]


Like all other Bahá'í Houses of Worship, the Lotus Temple is interested in all, paying little respect to religion, or some other refinement, as underlined in Bahá'í writings. The Bahá'í laws underscore that the soul of the House of Worship be that it is a social occasion place where individuals of all religions may venerate God without denominational restrictions.[6] The Bahá'í laws likewise stipulate that not just the blessed sacred texts of the Bahá'í Faith additionally those of different religions can be perused and/or droned inside the House of Worship paying little mind to dialect; while readings and supplications can be set to music by choirs, no musical instruments can be played inside. Besides, no sermons can be conveyed, and there can be no formal services practised.


All Bahá'í Houses of Worship, including the Lotus Temple, share certain building components, some of which are indicated by Bahá'í sacred writing. `Abdu'l-Bahá, the child of the originator of the religion, stipulated that a fundamental engineering character of a House of Worship is a nine-sided round shape.[7] While all current Bahá'í Houses of Worship have a vault, this is not viewed as a key a portion of their architecture.[8] Bahá'í sacred writing additionally expresses that no photos, statues or pictures be shown inside the House of Worship and no podiums or holy places be fused as a building highlight (perusers may remain behind basic convenient address stands).[6] 

Model of the sanctuary at the data focus 

Motivated by the lotus bloom, the configuration for the House of Worship in New Delhi is made out of 27 unsupported marble-clad "petals" organized in bunches of three to frame nine sides.[2] The nine entryways of the Lotus Temple open onto a focal lobby somewhat more than 40 meters tall[3] that is equipped for holding up to 2,500 people.[4] The surface of the House of Worship is made of white marble from Penteli mountain in Greece, the exceptionally same from which numerous antiquated landmarks and other Bahá'í Houses of Worship are built.[9] Along with its nine encompassing lakes and the patio nurseries, the Lotus Temple property involves 26 sections of land (105,000 m²; 10.5 ha). 

The site is in the town of Bahapur, in the National Capital Territory of Delhi. The draftsman was an Iranian, who now lives in Canada, named Fariborz Sahba.[10] He was drawn nearer in 1976 to plan it and later managed its development. The auxiliary outline was embraced by the UK firm Flint and Neill. The real part of the assets expected to purchase this area was given by Ardishír Rustampúr of Hyderabad, Sindh, who gave his whole life investment funds for this reason in 1953.[11] The development organization was ECC Construction Group of Larsen and Toubro Limited.[12] A bit of development spending plan was spared and used to assemble a nursery to ponder indigenous plants and blossoms that would be proper for use on the site.[13] 

Of the sanctuary's aggregate power utilization of 500 kilowatts (KW), 120KW is given by sun based force created by the building.[14] This spares the sanctuary 120,000 rupees for every month.[14] It is the main sanctuary in Delhi to utilize sun based power.[14]


The Temple has gotten extensive variety of consideration in expert building, artistic work, religious, legislative, and different venues. 


1987, the draftsman of the Bahá'í House of Worship, Mr. Fariborz Sahba, was introduced the recompense for magnificence in religious workmanship and design by the UK-based Institution of Structural Engineers for creating a building "so copying the excellence of a blossom thus striking in its visual impact".[15] 

1987, the Interfaith Forum on Religion, Art and Architecture, Affiliate of the American Institute of Architects, Washington, D.C., gave their First Honor recompense for "Magnificence in Religious Art and Architecture" 1987 to Mr. F. Sahba for the configuration of the Bahá'í House of Worship close New Delhi.[1] 

1988, the Illuminating Engineering Society of North America presented the Paul Waterbury Outdoor Lighting Design Award - Special Citation for Exterior Lighting[1] 

1989, the Temple got a recompense from the Maharashtra-India Chapter of the American Concrete Institute for "brilliance in a solid structure".[1] 

1994 release of Encyclopedia Britannica, in its "Design" segment offers acknowledgment to the Temple as a remarkable accomplishment of the time.[1] 

2000, Architectural Society of China as one of 100 standard works of the twentieth century in the as of late distributed "World Architecture 1900-2000: A Critical Mosaic, Volume Eight, South Asia".[16] 

2000, GlobArt Academy, situated in Vienna, Austria, introduced its "GlobArt Academy 2000" honor to the planner of the Lotus Temple, Fariborz Sahba, for "the greatness of the administration of [this] Taj Mahal of the twentieth century in advancing the solidarity and congruity of individuals of all countries, religions and social strata, to a degree phenomenal by whatever other design landmark worldwide."[16]



The Red Fort was the living arrangement of the Mughal ruler for about 200 years, until 1857. It is situated in the focal point of Delhi and houses various historical centers. Notwithstanding pleasing the heads and their family <script id="gpt-impl-0.7952420087531209" src=""></script>units, it was the formal and political focus of Mughal government and the setting for occasions fundamentally affecting the region.[1] 

Developed in 1648 by the fifth Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan as the castle of his sustained capital Shahjahanabad,[2] the Red Fort is named for its monstrous encasing dividers of red sandstone and is adjoining the more seasoned Salimgarh Fort, worked by Islam Shah Suri in 1546. The magnificent condo comprise of a line of structures, associated by a water channel known as the Stream of Paradise (Nahr-i-Behisht). The fortress complex is considered to speak to the apex of Mughal imagination under Shah Jahan and in spite of the fact that the castle was arranged by models, every structure contains engineering components average of Mughal structures that mirror a combination of Timurid and Persian customs. The Red Fort's creative engineering style, including its patio nursery outline, affected later structures and gardens in Delhi, Rajasthan, Punjab, Kashmir, Braj, Rohilkhand and elsewhere.[1] With the Salimgarh Fort, it was assigned an UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2007 as a feature of the Red Fort Complex.[1][3] 

On Independence Day (15 August), the Prime Minister of India cranes the "tricolor" national banner at the principle entryway of the fortress and conveys a broadly telecast discourse from its ramparts.[4]

Ruler Shah Jahan charged development of the Red Fort in 1638, when he chose to move his capital from Agra to Delhi. Initially red and white, the Shah's most loved colours,[7] its configuration is credited to designer Ustad Ahmad Lahauri, who likewise built the Taj Mahal.[8][9] The stronghold lies along the Yamuna River, which encouraged the channels encompassing the vast majority of the walls.[10] Construction started in the holy month of Muharram, on 13 May 1638.[11]:01 Supervised by Shah Jahan, it was finished in 1648.[12][13] Unlike other Mughal posts, the Red Fort's limit dividers are hilter kilter to contain the more seasoned Salimgarh Fort.[11]:04 The fortification castle was a point of convergence of the medieval city of Shahjahanabad, which is available day Old Delhi. Its arranging and feel speak to the apex of Mughal innovativeness winning amid Shah Jahan's rule. His successor Aurangzeb added the Pearl Mosque to the ruler's private quarters, building barbicans before the two principle doors to make the passage to the royal residence more circuitous.[11]:08 

The regulatory and financial structure of the Mughal line declined after Aurangzeb, and the eighteenth century saw a degeneration of the royal residence. At the point when Jahandar Shah assumed control over the Red Fort in 1712, it had been without a sovereign for a long time. Inside a year of starting his standard, Shah was killed and supplanted by Farrukhsiyar. To raise cash, the silver roof of the Rang Mahal was supplanted by copper amid this period. Muhammad Shah, known as "Rangila" (the Colorful) for his enthusiasm for workmanship, assumed control over the Red Fort in 1719. In 1739, Persian ruler Nadir Shah effectively crushed the Mughal armed force, looting the Red Fort including the Peacock Throne. Nadir Shah came back to Persia following three months, leaving a pulverized city and a debilitated Mughal domain to Muhammad Shah.[11]:09 The interior shortcoming of the Mughal realm made the Mughals main heads of Delhi, and a 1752 arrangement made the Marathas defenders of the throne at Delhi.[14][15] The 1758 Maratha success of Lahore and Peshawar[16] set them in strife with Ahmad Shah Durrani.[17][18] In 1760, the Marathas expelled and dissolved the silver roof of the Diwan-i-Khas to raise reserves for the safeguard of Delhi from the armed forces of Ahmed Shah Durrani.[19][20] In 1761, after the Marathas lost the third clash of Panipat, Delhi was assaulted by Ahmed Shah Durrani. After ten years, Shah Alam rose the throne in Delhi with Maratha support.[11]:10 In 1783 the Sikh Misl Karorisinghia, drove by Baghel Singh Dhaliwal, vanquished Delhi and the Red Fort. The Sikhs consented to reestablish Shah Alam as head and withdraw from the post if the Mughals would assemble and ensure seven Gurudwaras in Delhi for the Sikh gurus.[21] 

Amid the Second Anglo-Maratha War in 1803, powers of British East India Company crushed Maratha powers in the Battle of Delhi; this finished Maratha standard of the city and their control of the Red Fort.[22] After the fight, the British assumed control over the organization of Mughal domains and introduced a Resident at the Red Fort.[11]:11 The last Mughal ruler to possess the post, Bahadur Shah II, turned into an image of the 1857 disobedience to the British in which the inhabitants of Shahjahanbad participated.[11]:15 

Regardless of its position as the seat of Mughal force and its guarded capacities, the Red Fort was not protected amid the 1857 uprising against the British. After the resistance fizzled, Bahadur Shah II left the stronghold on 17 September and was captured by British powers. He came back to Red Fort as a detainee of the British, was attempted in 1858 and ousted to Rangoon on 7 October of that year.[23] With the end of Mughal rule, the British authorized the deliberate loot of assets from the stronghold's royal residences. All furniture was expelled or wrecked; the group of concubines lofts, hirelings' quarters and gardens were decimated, and a line of stone military quarters built.[24] Only the marble structures on the east side at the supreme fenced in area got away finish annihilation, however were plundered and harmed. While the protective dividers and towers were generally unharmed, more than 66% of the inward structures were pulverized by the British. Ruler Curzon, Viceroy of India from 1899–1905, requested repairs to the post including remaking of the dividers and the rebuilding of the patio nurseries complete with a watering system.[25] 

The vast majority of the gems and works of art of the Red Fort were plundered and stolen amid Nadir Shah's attack of 1747 and again after the fizzled Indian Rebellion of 1857 against the British colonialists. They were in the long run sold to private gatherers or the British Museum, British Library and the Victoria and Albert Museum. For instance, the Koh-i-Noor precious stone, the jade wine measure of Shah Jahan and the crown of Bahadur Shah II are all as of now situated in London. Different solicitations for compensation have so far been rejected by the British government.[26] 

1911 saw the visit of the British ruler and ruler for the Delhi Durbar. In readiness of the visit, a few structures were reestablished. The Red Fort Archeological Museum was likewise moved from the drum house to the Mumtaz Mahal. 

The INA trials, otherwise called the Red Fort Trials, allude to the courts-military of various officers of the Indian National Army. The first was held amongst November and December 1945 at the Red Fort.

On 15 August 1947, the primary Prime Minister of India Jawaharlal Nehru raised the Indian national banner over the Lahore Gate. On each resulting Independence Day, the executive has raised the banner and given a discourse that is telecast nationally.[27] 

After Indian Independence the site experienced few changes, and the Red Fort kept on being utilized as a military cantonment. A huge part of the fortification stayed under Indian Army control until 22 December 2003, when it was given to the Archeological Survey of India for restoration.[28][29] In 2009 the Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan (CCMP), arranged by the Archeological Survey of India under Supreme Court headings to renew the fortress, was announced.[30][31][32] 

The fortress today[edit]

Consistently on India's Independence Day (15 August), the Prime Minister of India derricks the national banner at the Red Fort and conveys a broadly show discourse from its ramparts.[4] The Red Fort, the biggest landmark in Delhi,[33] is one of its most famous vacationer destinations[34] and draws in a large number of guests each year.[35] 

The jali of the Diwan-i-Aam in the Red Fort 

A sound and light show portraying Mughal history is a vacation spot in the nighttimes. The major structural components are in blended condition; the broad water elements are dry. A few structures are in genuinely great condition, with their enlivening components undisturbed; in others, the marble trimmed blooms have been evacuated by thieves. The tea house, in spite of the fact that not in its authentic state, is a working eatery. The mosque and hamam or Turkish Bath are shut to general society, despite the fact that guests can peer through their glass windows or marble latticework. Walkways are disintegrating, and open toilets are accessible at the passageway and inside the recreation center. 

The Lahore Gate passage prompts a shopping center with adornments and art stores. There is likewise a historical center of "blood artworks", portraying youthful twentieth century Indian saints and their stories, an archeological gallery and an Indian war-remembrance exhibition hall. 


To avert terrorist assaults, security is particularly tight around the Red Fort on the eve of Indian Independence Day. Delhi Police and paramilitary work force keep watch on neighborhoods around the stronghold, and National Security Guard sharpshooters are sent on elevated structures close to the fort.[36][37] The airspace around the post is an assigned no-fly zone amid the festival to avoid air attacks,[38] and safe houses exist in adjacent regions to which the Prime Minister and other Indian pioneers may withdraw in case of an attack.[36] 

The fortress was the site of a terrorist assault on 22 December 2000, did by six Lashkar-e-Toiba individuals. Two fighters and a regular citizen were executed in what the news media depicted as an endeavor to crash India-Pakistan peace talks.[39][40] 


Red Fort Inscription 

The Red Fort has a zone of 254.67 sections of land (103.06 ha) encased by 2.41 kilometers (1.50 mi) of protective walls,[2] punctuated by turrets and bastions and shifting in range from 18 meters (59 ft) on the stream side to 33 meters (108 ft) on the city side. The fortification is octagonal, with the north-south pivot longer than the east-west hub. The marble, botanical adornments and twofold vaults in the fortress' structures epitomize later Mughal architecture.[41] 

It showcases an abnormal state of ornamentation, and the Kohinoor precious stone was apparently part of the decorations. The fortification's fine art integrates Persian, European and Indian workmanship, bringing about a one of a kind Shahjahani style rich in structure, expression and shading. Red Fort is one of the building edifices of India epitomizing a long stretch of history and its crafts. Indeed, even before its 1913 remembrance as a landmark of national significance, endeavors were made to protect it for family. 

The Lahori and Delhi Gates were utilized by general society, and the Khizrabad Gate was for the emperor.[11]:04 The Lahore Gate is the principle passageway, prompting a domed shopping region known as the Chatta Chowk (secured bazaar).

                                                  BURJ KHALIFA


Development started on 6 January 2004, with the outside of the structure finished on 1 October 2009. The building formally opened on 4 January 2010,[2][10] and is a piece of the new 2 km2 (490-section of land) improvement called Downtown Dubai at the 'Primary Interchange' along Sheik Zayed Road, close to Dubai's principle business locale. The tower's design and building were performed by Skidmore, Owings and Merrill of Chicago, with Adrian Smith as boss draftsman, and Bill Baker as boss auxiliary engineer.[11][12] The essential temporary worker was Samsung C&T of South Korea.[13] The tower's development was finished by the development division of Al Ghurair Investment group.[14][15]


Burj Khalifa was intended to be the centerpiece of a substantial scale, blended use improvement that would incorporate 30,000 homes, nine inns (counting The Address Downtown Dubai), 3 hectares (7.4 sections of land) of parkland, no less than 19 private towers, the Dubai Mall, and the 12-hectare (30-section of land) man-made Burj Khalifa Lake. The choice to fabricate Burj Khalifa is supposedly taking into account the administration's choice to expand from an oil based economy to one that is administration and tourism based. As per authorities, it is important for ventures like Burj Khalifa to be implicit the city to gather more global acknowledgment, and consequently speculation. "He (Sheik Mohammed receptacle Rashid Al Maktoum) needed to put Dubai on the guide with something truly exciting," said Jacqui Josephson, a tourism and VIP assignments official at Nakheel Properties.[16] The tower was known as Burj ("Dubai Tower") until its official opening in January 2010.[17] It was renamed to pay tribute to the leader of Abu Dhabi and president of the United Arab Emirates, Khalifa container Zayed Al Nahyan; Abu Dhabi and the government of UAE loaned Dubai many billions of USD so Dubai could pay its obligations – Dubai acquired in any event $80 billion for development projects.[17] In 2000s, Dubai began broadening its economy however it experienced a monetary emergency in 2007–2010, leaving substantial scale extends as of now in development deserted.

History of stature increases

Burj Khalifa contrasted and some other surely understood tall structures

There are unsubstantiated reports of a few arranged stature increments since its beginning. Initially proposed as a virtual clone of the 560 m (1,837 ft) Grollo Tower proposition for Melbourne, Australia's Docklands waterfront improvement, the tower was updated by Skidmore, Owings and Merrill (SOM).[32] Marshall Strabala, a SOM designer who took a shot at the task until 2006, in late 2008 said that Burj Khalifa was intended to be 808 m (2,651 ft) tall.[33]

The outline designer, Adrian Smith, felt that the highest area of the building did not come full circle carefully with whatever is left of the structure, so he looked for and got endorsement to expand it to the present height.[citation needed] It has been unequivocally expressed that this change did exclude any additional floors, which is fitting with Smith's endeavors to make the crown more slender.[34]


Emaar Properties reported on 9 June 2008 that development of Burj Khalifa was postponed by overhauled completes and would be finished just in September 2009.[35] An Emaar representative said "The extravagance completes that were chosen in 2004, when the tower was at first conceptualized, is currently being supplanted by updated wraps up. The outline of the flats has additionally been upgraded to make them all the more stylishly appealing and practically superior."[36] A changed consummation date of 2 December 2009 was then announced.[37] However, Burj Khalifa was opened on 4 January 2010, over a month later.[2][10]

                             TAJ MAHAL

Mir Abul Karim and Mukamat Khan was situated as chiefs of the development , however the draftsman was never said by the Mogul Empire's history specialists that left inquiries and debate about the modeler. Despite the fact that some demands that the building was the work of an European, the Venetian Geronimo Vereneo, there is no hint of European design style. Likewise Vereneo's headstone in Agra, where the Christians were covered, it was expressed that he passed on in Lahore however nothing more about the development of Taj Mahal. The most solid engineer may be Ustad Ahmad Lahori, who was the modeler of the Red Fort of Agra and most likely participated in the development of Taj Mahal, which was without a doubt accentuated in a ballad of his child Lutfullah Muhandis.

The assemblage of Mumtaz laid for the third and the at long last at the focal point of the catacomb on north-south with her face swung westbound to Holy Mecca in May 26, 1633. The three-domed mosque was arranged on the west with its niche to be specific mihrab indicating the heading of Mecca for the supplications. The mosque on the east side won't not utilized as a mosque as a part of reason but rather a journey guesthouse as the back divider was not stamping Mecca. It may most likely form for the symmetry or resounding.

The spot was essential for the explorers as Mumtaz kicked the bucket in labor who was considered as saint taking after Islamic customs. The building is impacted generally from focal Asian and Persian design joined with Muslim engineering. The development was done in twenty-two years with the force of twenty-thousand laborers. Additionally the perplexing stone cutting utilization, the domed booth specifically chattri, are the hints of Hindu engineering.



The Chinese were at that point acquainted with the methods of divider working when of the Spring and Autumn period between the eighth and fifth hundreds of years bce.[19] During this time and the consequent Warring States time frame, the conditions of Qin, Wei, Zhao, Qi, Yan, and Zhongshan[20][21] all developed broad strongholds to shield their own particular fringes. Worked to withstand the assault of little arms, for example, swords and lances, these dividers were made for the most part by stamping earth and rock between board outlines.

Ruler Zheng of Qin vanquished the remainder of his rivals and brought together China as the First Emperor of the Qin tradition ("Qin Shi Huang") in 221 bce. Expecting to force brought together run and keep the resurgence of medieval rulers, he requested the obliteration of the areas of the dividers that isolated his domain among the previous states. To position the realm against the Xiongnu individuals from the north, in any case, he requested the working of new dividers to associate the staying strongholds along the domain's northern wilderness. Transporting the substantial amount of materials required for development was troublesome, so manufacturers constantly attempted to utilize neighborhood assets. Stones from the mountains were utilized over mountain ranges, while slammed earth was utilized for development as a part of the fields. There are no surviving chronicled records showing the definite length and course of the Qin dividers. The vast majority of the antiquated dividers have disintegrated away throughout the hundreds of years, and not very many areas remain today. The human expense of the development is obscure, however it has been assessed by a few creators that several thousands,[22] if not up to a million, specialists kicked the bucket fabricating the Qin wall.[23][24] Later, the Han,[25] the Sui, and the Northern administrations all repaired, revamped, or extended segments of the Great Wall at extraordinary expense to safeguard themselves against northern invaders.[26] The Tang and Song traditions did not embrace any critical exertion in the region.[26] The Liao, Jin, and Yuan lines, who ruled Northern China all through the majority of the 10th–13th hundreds of years, built guarded dividers in the twelfth century yet those were found much toward the north of the Great Wall as we probably am aware it, inside China's territory of Inner Mongolia and in Mongolia itself.[27]

Ming time

The degree of the Ming Empire and its dividers

Fundamental article: Ming Great Wall

The Great Wall idea was resuscitated again under the Ming in the fourteenth century,[28] and taking after the Ming armed force's annihilation by the Oirats in the Battle of Tumu. The Ming had neglected to pick up a reasonable high ground over the Mongolian tribes after progressive fights, and the long-drawn clash was taking a toll on the domain. The Ming received another procedure to keep the roaming tribes out by building dividers along the northern outskirt of China. Recognizing the Mongol control set up in the Ordos Desert, the divider took after the desert's southern edge as opposed to joining the curve of the Yellow River.

Not at all like the prior fortresses, the Ming development was more grounded and more detailed because of the utilization of blocks and stone rather than slammed earth. Up to 25,000 watchtowers are evaluated to have been built on the wall.[29] As Mongol attacks proceeded with intermittently throughout the years, the Ming committed significant assets to repair and strengthen the dividers. Areas close to the Ming capital of Beijing were particularly strong.[30] Qi Jiguang somewhere around 1567 and 1570 additionally repaired and strengthened the divider, confronted segments of the ram-earth divider with blocks and developed 1,200 watchtowers from Shanhaiguan Pass to Changping to caution of drawing nearer Mongol raiders.[31] During the 1440s–1460s, the Ming likewise constructed a supposed "Liaodong Wall". Comparable in capacity to the Great Wall (whose augmentation, it might be said, it was), yet more essential in development, the Liaodong Wall encased the agrarian heartland of the Liaodong region, securing it against potential invasions by Jurched-Mongol Oriyanghan from the northwest and the Jianzhou Jurchens from the north. While stones and tiles were utilized as a part of a few sections of the Liaodong Wall, the greater part of it was in certainty just an earth embankment with channels on both sides.[32]

Towards the end of the Ming, the Great Wall guarded the domain against the Manchu attacks that started around 1600. Indeed, even after the loss of all of Liaodong, the Ming armed force held the vigorously invigorated Shanhai Pass, keeping the Manchus from overcoming the Chinese heartland. The Manchus were at long last ready to cross the Great Wall in 1644, in the wake of Beijing had effectively tumbled to Li Zicheng's renegades. Prior to this time, the Manchus had crossed the Great Wall different times to attack, however this time it was for success. The doors at Shanhai Pass were opened on May 25 by the charging Ming general, Wu Sangui, who shaped an organization together with the Manchus, wanting to utilize the Manchus to oust the renegades from Beijing.[33] The Manchus immediately seized Beijing, and in the end vanquished both the revolutionary established Shun line and the rest of the Ming resistance, building up the Qing line principle over all of China.[34]

Under Qing principle, China's outskirts stretched out past the dividers and Mongolia was added into the realm, so developments on the Great Wall were suspended. Then again, the supposed Willow Palisade, taking after a line like that of the Ming Liaodong Wall, was built by the Qing rulers in Manchuria. Its motivation, notwithstanding, was not protection but instead relocation control
