  • Brahmagiri is visited often because it has the source of the river Godavari, Durg-Bhandar remains unexplored.
From the Bhrahmgiri plateau, Way to Durg Bhandar starts from a temple of Shiv Jata where the route passes to the north direction. As you keep walking along the trail, you will come across a very interesting route. There are two sets of underground steps carved in the stone that lead you to Durg Bhandar. You have to crawl to enter this beautiful staircase created painstakingly built in the 16th century!

It has very few remains and is believed to have served as a watchtower. There are a few water tanks, but the water in them is not potable. The fort gives a beautiful view of the entire Trimbak town, the nearby forts of Harihar and Basgad, and a nearby lake.

  • Хотя за окном уже август, лето все же продолжается. Открылись парки и скверы. Можно по-новому взглянуть на привычные места и заново научиться ценить их красоту. 😍😁

Although it's already August outside the window, summer still continues. Parks and squares were opened. You can take a fresh look at familiar places and learn to appreciate their beauty again.

  • Kenilworth Castle, Warwickshire.

Continuing on from the last two features, for the final post on Kenilworth we move into the Tudor period.

Henry VIII was fond of Kenilworth and insisted it remained as a royal castle, spending money on repairs and improvements. Much of this work was overseen by John Dudley, Duke of Northumberland, who was later gifted Kenilworth by Henry VIII. 

Dudley also prospered under Edward VI and built the new stable block at Kenilworth, but he was executed in 1553 by Queen Mary for supporting the plot to place Lady Jane Grey on the throne.

His son, Robert Dudley, was later given Kenilworth by Elizabeth I and became a great favourite of the Queen, with Dudley for many years trying to gain her hand in marriage.

Robert was created 1st earl of Leicester by Elizabeth in 1564, a move by the queen designed primarily to make him more attractive as a marriage partner for Mary, Queen of Scots. But Dudley was having none of it and had designs on Elizabeth.

He spent vast sums at Kenilworth to impress  Elizabeth, building what we now call Leicester’s Building and royal apartments, he also built the Tudor Garden and added a fine new gatehouse.

Elizabeth visited Kenilworth in 1566 and 1568, then again in 1572 and again once Dudley had finished his building in 1575, when she stayed for 19 days with a court of over 400. But by now Dudley knew he would never marry his queen.

By the end of the civil war  Parliament ordered the castle’s defences to be destroyed.

Photo 1 and 2 show Dudley’s gatehouse, with photo three showing one of the Tudor windows from Leicester’s Building in the state apartments. Photo 4 gives a glimpse of the Tudor Garden created by Dudley taken from De Clinton’s keep, with 5 & 6 showing more of the garden.

  • Il castello di Padernello si trova nei pressi di Borgo San Giacomo, provincia di Brescia, in Lombardia. La struttura risale al XV secolo e attualmente è circondata dal suo fossato e accessibile tramite ponte levatoio.

  • 🌊 Série [ÎLES EN RELIEF] : l’île d’Aix
⛵ Accostons aujourd’hui au fort de la Rade, construit à partir de 1692 sur la pointe méridionale de l’île d’Aix pour protéger l’arsenal de Rochefort. En 1757, il se voit en grande partie détruit par la flotte anglaise. En 1779, alors que l’île est de nouveau menacée par les Anglais, le marquis de Montalembert, ingénieur militaire, fait réaliser en quelques semaines un fort en bois sur un plan en fer à cheval. C’est ce projet qu’on le découvre sur le plan-relief, issu de la collection personnelle du marquis, réalisé à cette occasion et achevé en 1780. 
Napoléon Ier ordonne plus tard la construction d’un nouveau fort (en pierre), toujours debout aujourd’hui.
Classé monument historique en 1966, le fort abrite actuellement une résidence de tourisme, un camping et une école de voile.

  • Langres, tour Saint-Ferjeux depuis l'allée des Marronniers. 2e moitié du XVe siècle.  Les deux salles voûtées sont équipées de casemates de tirs et la terrasse accueillait les canons de plus gros calibre. Les murs peuvent atteindre 6m d'épaisseur par endroit. La tour avait vocation à défendre l'entrée sud de la ville.

  • Русская версия форта Боярд, а точнее — форт "Александр I" (он же "Чумный", он же "Чумной"). Одно из оборонительных сооружений в системе фортов Кронштадта, которое, со времен своей постройки в середине 19 века, пережило немало всякого. После исключения из числа защитных сооружений, с конца 19 века и до революционного 1917-го года, здесь была противочумная лаборатория; позже форт исполнял роль склада, а в 80-х, уже на закате советской эпохи, с размахом снялся в кино, в фильме "Порох" — полностью при этом выгорев 🔥  В современной истории здесь неоднократно проходили рейв-дискотеки, сейчас же форт находится в неопределенно-подвешенном состоянии — все многочисленные варианты реставрации и дальнейшего использования так и остались идеями и нереализованными проектами.
