Postcard from India no. 4
Another UNESCO postcard from India, sent by Abhishek from New Delhi, received on 3 February 2009. Thank you!
It shows the tomb of Salim Chisti in Fatehpur Sikri, the state of Uttar Pradesh. A masterpiece of Muslim architecture, the city is unique in India as a nearly intact Mughal city.
The large beautiful Rs.5 stamp was issued on 2 May 2007 along with 5 others is a series dedicated to 2550 years of mahaparinirvana of the Buddha (the final nirvana attained at death of the physical body). About the Rs.10 tiger stamp I wrote here.
