Clicked these pictures of the fort at Vellore (Tamil Nadu), this summer. This fort is of historical significance. This was where the first ever mutiny against the British took place - in 1806 - long before the Sepoy Mutiny in Meerut in 1857!
The 200th anniversary of this event was celebrated recently. Kumudam.com has a special feature about this fort (dated 14.08.'06).

The moat has water throughout the year, surprisingly! I have never seen the moat dry! Now, boating has been introduced in the moat!
fort 2

Loved the brilliant painting on the sky, by nature! A part of the fort can be seen as silhouette on the left.
fort 1

Update: All 3 pics above are silhouettes and the details are not visible. So, here we go - one more snap, with better detail!

    Awesome pics! Who's the photographer? Just watched the Mangal Pandey movie, and was wondering why it didn't do well. Music was perfect for the movie, why'd they say ARR was slipping! It's much better than all those pathetic KJ movies?!!
