Looking through a screen in Bir Singh Palace, Datia

Looking through a screen in Bir Singh Palace, Datia



 
Emilia has already blogged about our visits to Sonagiri and Datia when we were travelling from Gwalior to Orchha. I’ve just looked through the photos I took there and realised how much I liked the different carved screens that were in the palace.

Every screen seemed to be unique although maybe they weren’t as the palace design was based on the Hindu swastika sign and was symmetrical.

A lot of the screens had what looked like stars or even cobwebs as part of their design.

Here’s some photos, I hope you like them:
