15 Craziest Medieval Buildings
Stay tuned to learn about some of the most impressive medieval structures around, including castles that were built nearly one thousand years and a cathedral that, for centuries was the world’s tallest building. Subscribe to Knowledge Feed for awesome mysteries, discoveries, fun topics and all around AWESOME videos ! 8. Wells Cathedral When the present Wells Cathedral was constructed sometime around 1175, it was the first cathedral to be built entirely using the new Gothic Style that was brought from France. The first phase of building took around eight decades to complete. 300 statues that were built during its original construction remain to this day. Architects and observes widely recognize the Wells Cathedral as one of the most beautiful of all of the English Cathedrals. 7. Guildhall of London Perhaps the most impressive aspect of London’s Guildhall is its breathtaking medieval great hall which is regularly used for grand ceremonies. The building was undertaken in 1411 and completed in 1440. The Great Fire of London in 1666 didn’t affect the Guildhall too much, though partial restoration from slight damage would be required. 6. Eltz Castle Amazingly, this castle is still owned by a branch of the same family that lived there in the eleven hundred's a full 33 generations ago, the Eltz family. In 1268 the Eltz brothers had a dispute, and the family split the castle in three, with each sibling building their own fortified living quarters. These separate building co-existed for hundreds of years. Finally, in the early 1800's, the House of the Golden Lion had outlived the other families and was prosperous enough to unify the castle. 5. Mont Saint Michel Abbey Today, the medieval island community of Mont Saint Michel has an epic Abbey at its apex and is connected to France’s coast via a single 2500 foot highway and footbridge. It's one of the most popular tourist attractions in the country and millions visit annually. In medieval times the monastery protected the French from the invading English repeatedly during the Hundred Years’ War and thanks to state of the art fortifications for its time was never seized. After the French Revolution, the island became nothing more than a dilapidated prison until prominent figures like author Victor Hugo launched a recovery campaign. Their efforts were rewarded when the prison closed in 1863 and again when Mont Saint Michel was declared a historical monument in 1874. Restoration efforts have been ongoing for years and have made the island an extremely impressive, beautiful site. 4. Lincoln Cathedral One of the most impressive Gothic structures on the planet Lincoln Cathedral lies in the town of Lincoln, England. Bishop Remigius started work on the Cathedral in 1072. An earthquake would partially destroy the Cathedral in 1124 leaving only the West Front, which has been preserved to this day. When a replacement tower with a spire was added to the Lincoln Cathedral, it became the tallest building in the world and would hold this title for the next 238 years until the spire collapsed in 1549. It was not rebuilt. 3. Westminster Abbey One of the most iconic buildings in the world Westminster Abbey has been the setting of every royal coronation since the coronation of William the Conqueror in 1066, has seen at least 16 royal weddings, and is the resting place of 17 English monarchs. King Henry the third rebuilt the Abbey starting in 1245 and chose it to be his burial site. Today Westminster Abbey attracts over a million visitors every year. 2. Windsor Castle Windsor Castle has served the British royal family for over one thousand years, making it the oldest occupied castle in all of England. When constructed in the eleventh century it was simple and made of wood. King Henry the first favored the castle and started a gradual reconstruction process that would turn Windsor Castle into one of the most expensive buildings in the Middle Ages. A humongous fire in 1992 destroyed large portions of the castle, but it was rebuilt into the magnificent specimen that it is today. Wow Windsor Castle is absolutely massive. If you’ve made it this far than you’re really into medieval building which is great because so are we. Leave a cool comment and we may shout you out by name in our next video and, as always, thanks for watching. 1. Notre Dame de Paris While Victor Hugo was busy saving Mont Saint Michel Abbey from the destructive nature of time he was also writing about another of the continent’s most impressive medieval structures, Notre Dame. The cathedral lies in Paris and is widely considered the most impressive feat of French Gothic architecture ever erected. It’s one of the most well-known churches on Earth. The cathedral treasury contains a reliquary which houses some of the most valuable objects of Catholicism including the Crown of Thorns and a portion of the True Cross.

NYC Architecture - The Old and The Modern | Manhattan
Manhattan, New York City I explore something that makes New York great, which is its architecture. From old to modern architecture, NYC has it all. I start from the city hall, which has the European style architecture, then I take a walk to SOHO district which has buildings with a unique design. Then I end up in the most modern part of NYC, which it The Oculus of World Trade Center, and the Freedom Tower of WTC. There's so much, that I couldn't cover the whole architecture of NYC, because it would take me days, but hope everybody enjoy some of the buildings I showed in the video.

Ancient Indian Architecture Part I
Ancient Indian Architecture Indian architecture is as old as the history of the civilization. The earliest remains of recognizable building activity in the India dates back to the Indus Valley cities. Ancient architecture of India: Ajanta caves AJANTA Caves are one of the world’s greatest historical monument recognized by UNESCO. Ajanta was discovered in 1819 A.D and were built as early as 2nd century BCE to about 480 CE. The village of Ajanta is in the Sahayadri hills, about 99 kms from Aurangabad a few miles away in a mammoth horseshoe-formed rock, there are 30 caves overlooking a gorge,each forming a room in the hill and some with inner rooms. Vijayanagara Empire Its ruins are located at present day Hampi in Karnataka. Four dynasties – Sangama, Saluva, Tuluva and Aravidu – ruled Vijayanagara from 1336 C.E. to 1646 C.E. It reached its climax in the end of 14th century. The Vitthala Temple amongst these is the finest example of ornate architecture with gopurams (temple entrance), halls, sanctum sanctorum and sabha mandapas. The temple also has a market street right in the middle and a richly carved step well (Pushkarni). Mahabodhi Temple In the sanctified town of Gaya, a holy structure that marks the path that the great ascetic took to gain divine enlightenment and became A Buddha. The temple was first constructed by the great emperor Ashoka, in 232 BCE and subsequent work was carried out by the rulers of Gupta dynasty. Konark Temple On the sparkling coasts of Bay of Bengal rests this edifice that honors the work of the masters of ancient times. The temple has an elaborate and intricate mammoth structure that depicts the chariot of the Sun God replete with 24 carved wheels, each of them 3 m in diameter, pulled by seven horses and guarded by two lions at the entrance that bravely crush elephants. It is an example of beautiful melee of science and architecture. THE WHEELS AT SUN TEMPLE KONARK SERVE AS ACCURATE SUN DIALS AND ARE INSPIRATION FOR THE MODERN DAY WATCHES Taj Mahal The Taj Mahal was built in 1632 AD by over twenty thousand artisans who worked over 22 years! The white marble was bought in from Makrana in Rajasthan and was transported by elephants. In its days of glory the Taj Mahal was adorned with no less than 28 types of precious stones, brought in from as far as Tibet and Persia. Bhimbetka Shelters The site spread over 10 km in length and about 3 km in width has more than 700 rock shelters, of which over 400 have paintings. The earliest human activities are known from the numerous stone tools including handaxes, cleavers and also the pebble tools. The landscape and the fauna surrounding the rock shelters is called Ratapani wildlife sanctuary in which the evidence of the trees and animals depicted in the paintings inside the shelter can still be found. Ellora Caves There are over 100 caves at the site, all excavated from the basalt cliff in Charanandri Hills, but only 34 are open to public 34 monasteries and temples are splendors where art and religion combines. each group represents deities and mythologies that were prevalent in the 1st millennium CE. The twelve caves of the Buddhist group speaks about the teachings of Buddhism. The ‘Cavern of the Ten Avatars’ is a majestic art piece constructed under the reign of Krishna I. The ethnicity of Jain group is well reflected by the sanctuaries carved by the Digambara sect of this religion. Chola temples The entire temple carved in granite is believed to be inspired by the Pallava architecture. The beautifully adorned 108 poses of the Bharata- Natyam on the walls reflects the rich culture during the chola dynasty. The beautiful series of carvings depicting the legend ruler Rajaraja conversing with his guru, is stunningly sculpted in rich colors which rewinds you to the time of king and queens. Mahabalipuram The temple is most famous for its depictions of the chariots of the warriors of the Mahbharata, called Rathas all of which are in a specifically designated form, some rising to as high as two or three storeys. There is another remarkable sculpture that adorns the temple walls which is called the Descent of the Ganges. The intricacy and ingenuity of the carvings are an example of the skill of the craftsman who constructed these temples way back in the 7th Century! Rani Ki Vav Situated in Patan, Gujarat, Rani Ki Vav is an ancient step-well, that was built by Rani Udaymati in 11th Century AD, to worship hallowed waters of Saraswati River. An exquisite example of subterranean architecture, Rani ki Vav is 64 meters long, 20 meters wide and 27 meters deep. It runs downwards upto a length of seven storeys. All of these storeys are carved with more 500 sculptures which represent humans, nymphs, gods and the kings in varying forms of skill and intricacy, with the central theme being the ten incarnations of Lord Vishnu.

How to draw old buildings - a stone dovecote
This follows from my visit to Chastleton House recently. I was quite taken with the dovecote in the parkland and thought I'd take the opportunity to show how to use reference photographs to draw something from a different angle. This is quite a long one because it takes a bit of time to work out the angles to draw from a different viewpoint and so work out the perspective. My Patreon members get a pdf sheet with a clean outline drawing and some reference photos to help. They also get this video free of adverts! You can support my videos on Patreon ➡️ http://bit.ly/ShooPatreonPage and get a whole lot more too! I also have a bit of a discussion about the use of reference photos vs straight copying of a photograph that you might find interesting You can see the dovecote again in this video: https://youtu.be/CT_dEnXtc4o The dovecote is at the end.

Top 6 Buildings in Toronto designed in the Richardsonian Romanesque style - Structures - 3 of 3
Old City Hall, the Ontario Legislature, and Victoria College at the University of Toronto are some of Toronto’s finest buildings.

Downtown Spokane Buildings Old Historic Lilac City Worlds Fair Town #1
Downtown Spokane Buildings Old Historic Lilac City Worlds Fair Town http://www.1ownercarguy.com Spokane is officially nicknamed the "Lilac City" There are many older Romanesque Revival-style buildings in the downtown Spokane Washington. I had to drive around town since it has been a few years since I was here. Here is what Wikipedia says is a city in the state of Washington, in the northwestern United States. It is the seat of Spokane County. It is located on the Spokane River west of the Rocky Mountain foothills in eastern Washington, 92 miles (148 km) south of the Canadian border, approximately 20 miles (32 km) from the Washington–Idaho border, and 232 miles (373 km) east of Seattle along Interstate 90. The city and wider Inland Northwest region is served by Spokane International Airport, 5 miles (8.0 km) west of downtown Spokane. According to the 2010 Census, Spokane had a population of 208,916, making it the second largest city in Washington and the 102nd largest city in the United States. The first humans to live in the area, the Spokane people (their name meaning "children of the sun" in Salishan), arrived between 13,000 and 8,000 years ago, living off plentiful game. Known as the birthplace of Father's Day, Spokane is officially nicknamed the "Lilac City". David Thompson explored the area with the westward expansion and establishment of the North West Company's Spokane House in 1810. This trading post was the first long-term European settlement in Washington. Completion of the Northern Pacific Railway in 1881 brought settlers to the Spokane area, and that same year it was officially incorporated as a city with the name "Spokan Falls". In the late 19th century, gold and silver were discovered in the Inland Northwest. The local economy depended on mining, timber, and agriculture until the 1980s. Spokane hosted the first environmentally themed World's Fair at Expo '74. Many of the older Romanesque Revival-style buildings in the downtown area were designed by architect Kirtland Kelsey Cutter after the Great Fire of 1889. The city also features Riverfront and Manito parks, the Smithsonian-affiliated Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture, the Davenport Hotel, and the Fox and Bing Crosby theaters. The Cathedral of Our Lady of Lourdes serves as the seat of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Spokane, and the city is also the center of the Mormon Spokane Washington Temple District. Gonzaga University was established in 1887 by the Society of Jesus, and the private Presbyterian Whitworth University moved to north Spokane in 1914 from Tacoma, WA.[7] In sports, the Gonzaga Bulldogs collegiate basketball team competes at the Division I level. Professional and semi-professional sports teams include the Spokane Indians in Minor League Baseball, Spokane Shock in arena football, and Spokane Chiefs in junior ice hockey. As of 2010, Spokane's only major daily newspaper, The Spokesman-Review, had a daily circulation of over 75,000. Make sure and check out all the videos in this travel series.

We hope this video has given you some insights about Indian Architecture. If you would like to know more here is the reference book used: Concepts of Space in Traditional Indian Architecture ------------------------------ Amazon: https://amzn.to/2GVIoyM Flipkart : http://fkrt.it/t93QT2NNNN General Awareness: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLxJNbXGrHdcX2gmfJ8DZg-VdS52RA0MEC Vocabulary Booster: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLxJNbXGrHdcWe4PMHJLQ7RZP8SRBrJOr4 IN this session, we are going to learn about the Indian architecture UPSC lesson. Indian architecture for IAS lesson is all about just introducing the basic concepts in Indian Architecture. You still have to study the Indian architecture books to get full detailed information. Our aim is to get you started on the Indian architectures such as Colonial Architecture, Indo Islamic Architecture, Ancient Architecture, Cave Architecture, Rock Cut, Temple Architecture. These are the types of Indian architecture. Ancient architecture of India is rich in culture and tradition. Lets see some facts on it. Colonial Architecture Like all other aspects of society, the colonization of India also had a great impact on architecture. Colonization marked a new chapter in Indian architecture. Though the Dutch, the Portuguese and the French made their presence felt through their buildings but it was the English who had a lasting impact on architecture of India. In the beginning of the colonial rule there were attempts at creating authority through classical prototypes. In its later phase the colonial architecture culminated into what is called the Indo-Saracenic architecture. The Indo-Saracenic architecture combined the features of Hindu, Islamic and western elements. Examples: Santhome Church,Chennai All Saints Cathedral, Allahabad St. George's Cathedral, Chennai Gole Market, New Delhi Medak Cathedral, Telangana Indo Islamic Architecture The medieval period saw great developments in the field of architecture. With the coming of Muslims to India, many new features came to be introduced in buildings. The development of Muslim Style of Architecture of this period can be called the Indo-Islamic Architecture or the Indian Architecture influenced by Islamic Art. Examples: Qutub Minar, New Delhi Alai Darwaza, New Delhi Agra Fort, Agra Taj Mahal, Agra Red Fort, New Delhi Ancient Architecture Indian architecture is as old as the history of the civilization. The earliest remains of recognizable building activity in the India dates back to the Indus Valley cities. Among India's ancient architectural remains, the most characteristic are the temples, Chaityas, Viharas, Stupas and other religious structures. Examples: Akshardham Temple, Delhi Virupaksha Temple, Karnataka Karla Caves, Maharashtra Ellora Caves, Maharashtra Cave Architecture The cave architecture in India is believed to have begun during the ancient time. These caves were used by Buddhist and Jain monks as places of worship and residence . Examples: Mahabalipuram, Tamilnadu Ajanta Caves, Maharashtra Bhaja Caves, Maharashtra Bedse Caves, Maharashtra Sittanavasal, Tamilnadu Rock Cut The Rock-cut structures present the most spectacular piece of ancient Indian art specimen. Most of the rock-cut structures were closely associated with various religions and religious activities. In the beginning, remarkable Buddhist and Jain rock-cut structures were built in areas such as Bihar in the east and Maharashtra in the west. Numerous caves were excavated by the Buddhist monks for prayer and residence purposes. The best example of this is Chaityas (prayer halls) and viharas (monasteries). Examples: Kailasa temple, Ellora Pancha Rathas, Mahabalipuram Barabar Caves, Bihar Badami Cave Temples, Karnataka Ajanta Cave, Maharashtra Temple Architecture In ancient India, temple architecture of high standard developed in almost all regions. The distinct architectural style of temple construction in different parts was a result of geographical, climatic, ethnic, racial, historical and linguistic diversities. Ancient Indian temples are classified in three broad types. This classification is based on different architectural styles, employed in the construction of the temples. Three main style of temple architecture are the Nagara or the Northern style, the Dravida or the Southern style and the Vesara or Mixed style. But at the same time there are also some regional styles of Bengal, Kerala and the Himalayan areas. Examples: Brihadeeswarar Temple, Thanjavur Jagadamba Temple, Madhya Pradesh Sun Temple, Modhera Konark Sun Temple, Orissa Chennakeshava Temple, Karnataka Subscribe to our channel for continuous updates ------------------------------------------------- Visit our website for Free regular updates: https://www.exambin.com Follow us on: Facebook : https://www.facebook.com/exam.ibps Twitter. https://www.twitter.com/exambin Google+ : https://plus.google.com/+ExamBin -------------------------------------------------

Old Kargil town | Market, Streets, Old buildings
Kargil was once a flourishing town, and a transit point for people travelling on the traditional silk route and a major trade route from Central Asia and India. There are structures which are almost over 100 years old. People here are very peaceful, which is pretty much visible from the fact that the Mosque and the Gurudwara share a single wall and next to each other. Nowdays, Kargil is only a transit point for people travelling from Leh to Srinagar or vice versa. There are however so much more to Kargil than just being a transit point.
