In the nervous 90s, stitching up old memories

The main Amba Vilas palace in Mysore, the cynosure of all eyes that now attracts more tourists than the Taj Mahal in Agra, turns 100 years old in 2012.

U.B. VASUDEV in Tampa, Florida, sends panoramic pictures of the palace shot by him last March. Each of the panoramas, a magnificent addition to existing photography of the palace, were created by stitching five frames together (click on the picture to view a larger image).

Vasudev also adds this comment:

“With one and a half years to go, I hope they will spruce up the palace before the anniversary. It is heart wrenching for us who grew up in the erstwhile Royal Mysore. It is unfortunate that we take things for granted without realising their value when we keep seeing it every day.”
