The haunting ruins of Warangal Fort, India

As a kid, i was always captivated by the grandeur of those rock pillars. And i grew up listening to those stories from those pillars of power that ruled the time. The beauty which still haunts...i've tried to capture the long view of the famous archway of the fort. The craftsmanship, artwork and engravings are very intricate and melodious. What remains now is just ruins..Sketched it in pen & watercolor using an an old photograph.

Bit of history: Warangal - a historical town, 150 km away from the Hyderabad. Warangal Fort epitomizes the beauty and wonder of the bygone era of Kakatiya Kingdom. This city was also mentioned by Marco Polo in his travel diaries. I come from this city and have a special place in my heart. Have a look at:
