•Victoria Memorial Hall•

This is the beautiful “Victoria Memorial Hall” in the city of joy “Kolkata” & it’s always a heart throb watching the Queen from a distance with wide angle lens.

The Victoria Memorial is a large marble building in Kolkata (West Bengal) India, which was built between 1906 and 1921. It is dedicated to the memory of Queen Victoria (1819–1901) and is now a museum and tourist destination under the auspices of the Ministry of Culture Govt of a INDIA. The memorial lies on the Maidan (grounds) by the bank of the Hooghly River near Jawaharlal Nehru road.

 

In January 1901, on the death of Queen Victoria,George Curzon 1st and Viceroy of India , suggested the creation of a fitting memorial. He proposed the construction of a grand building with a museum and gardens.

 

The Prince of Wales, later King George V,laid the foundation stone on 4 January 1906, and it was formally opened to the public in 1921.

 

I clicked this shot in the afternoon with little bit low light you can say at twilight because if you look into the shot you will find the lamps are already lit on the lawns with Nikon D7200 with 11-20mm Tokina lens one of the best of it’s category in wide angle accessories.

I would dedicate this shot to all Street/Monument Photography lovers across the Globe.
