Mahabharat This image is the roof of the set of the court of the epic Mahabharat. Mahabharat is an ancient Indian epic, comparable to the classical Greek epics – Iliad and the Odyssey, but much bigger. In fact, the Mahabharat is the longest story ever written. Written as shlokas (something like verses in the Bible), it is the longest poem ever written in the history of mankind. The original events described in the epic are thought to have happened somewhere between the 9th and the 8th centuries BCE. One of the chapters in the epic are the famed Bhagwad Gita. This set is either a replica of, or the actual location of the 1988 Mahabharat TV series. This is part of my Ramoji Film City series.

Reply Indeed, Steven! The rest of the court was also very colorful, complete with sculptures of court people (not sure what the term is for them). I couldn’t get a good photo of that though… Reply I find myself staring at this, Sudipto…it’s so beautiful! The colors together are so pleasing to the eye. Reply I wish I could have taken a sharper photograph though, Ginnie… There wasn’t much light and I didn’t have the tripod with me, figuring they might not allow a tripod… “Professional” photography was not allowed even at that time, whatever professional means… 😅 Reply Just too beautiful !!
