The Kalyana Mahal Chathram, was renovated by maharajah Serfoji II after his Varanasi pilgrimage, is in a stunning location on the Kaveri river bank and is currently the premises of a music college. The balusters in the roof are remarkable stucco work, and mimic the gooseberry in the finial designs. Though rapidly degenerating, one can see faint traces of frescoes on some walls. These frescoes in their heyday must have been gorgeous sights since they are large and inset with mirror pieces that reflect the muted light that fall on them.

अत्यंत नम्र स्वभावाच्या या युवराजांचे आपल्या सर्व उपक्रमात अत्यंत मोलाचे पाठबळ असते! यांना छायाचित्रणाचाही छंद आहे.

गतवर्षी तमिळनाडूतल्या एका संस्थेने आयोजित केलेल्या एका फ़ेसबुक छायाचित्र स्पर्धेत यांच्या एका अतिदुर्मिळ तंजावरी हस्तलिखिताच्या चित्रास सर्वाधिक लाईक्स मिळूनही केवळ द्रविड-आर्य वादाला चटावलेल्या घातकी वृत्तीमुळे यांना उपविजेतेपद दिले गेल…
