Weekly Photo Challenge: Converge

The Charminar is the most iconic building in Hyderabad, India. Multiple images of the monument had made me immune to its charms till a recent “Heritage Walk” that I participated in, which started at Charminar.

Charminar literally means “Four Minarets/Towers”. The four minarets support the four grand arches and the dome. The four arches converge in a very symmetric design into 8 interior arches which converge into a 32 sided polygon supporting the domed arch – making it the perfect subject for this week’s photo-challenge.
