Very Beautiful, could I say Palace? I hear it is vacant at the moment due to the lack of a King, and I would be only too willing to apply for the Position, my only qualification being I am a bit of s "Head Banger" LOL cheers scally from glasgow.

Well you have heard wrong! He might take your banging head if you dare challenge him. This is Bhutan.

This is the pure form of South Asian architecture, Indian architecture.

Indian tourism ministry is a fool to have propagated the Taj Mahal as the Icon of India. It looks more Arab/Iraq-ish..

This building is a thousand fold more beautiful than that Taj. I wish India was never touched by them Mughals.

ソキ,do you know its in Bhutan and Bhutan is not within India.How India could propagate some other country,s architecture as India's icon?Isn't statue of Liberty icon of NY?Its a gift from France!..Greetings

Hi F.Zaman, Thanks for the reply.

Yes, I know that this building is in Bhutan. I know that Bhutan is a separate country. I respect their sovereignty. Hence, I am not claiming Bhutan as Indian.

Rather, I am trying to remind you that Bhutanese culture is a Sister-Culture of the diverse Indian one.

Now to your second sentence, I am not saying that India should Propagate the Bhutanese Imperial Castle as an icon for India. Forgive me for my message seemed blunt, now to clear the doubts there are many beautiful building in India that are architecturally Indian. For example take a look at this picture of the Junga Fort this ancient fort is a good example of the true Indian architecture, but sadly the government has not maintained the ancient jewel nicely, so sadly the building is in quite a bad shape. There are many other such buildings in India which are not much publicized about.

And yes I know that the Statue of Liberty is French and not American... for that matter, even the Eiffel tower is French. (does it give the French an unfair advantage?

ソキ,sorry for my harsh language,thanks for a descriptive answer which I agree with you.

ソキ on December 26, 2009

Oh, never mind, it's OK. You weren't being harsh :)

And I appreciate that you agree with my point of view.

Thank you.

I think ソキ is right. What he meant was that India should have endorsed the Buddhist style of architecture also along with whatever else it was doing(which wasn't much!). The picture of The Taj placed adjacent to that of any Buddhist monastery or even a Hindoo temple could give the foreigners a measure of how diverse and how much of a melting pot our country truly is. That would really support the tag line our Tourism ministry uses

Incredible India...
