Design – 20/51

The Charminar in Hyderabad was constructed in 1591 by Mohammed Quli Qutab Shah. He built the Charminar to mark the end of plague in the Hyderabad city. Since the construction of the Charminar, the Hyderabad city has almost become synonymous with the monument. The Charminar is a massive and impressive structure with four minarets. In the evening, with illumination, the great Charminar looks even greater. With the passage of time the Charminar occupied so much importance that it became the heart of all bustling activities. It is in the bustling bazaars around the Charminar that you find the traditional nahari stalls and kulchas of Hyderabad. Hyderabad is one of those few cities, which have a fine blend of modernity and tradition.

The Charminar has four imposing arches, which face the four main directions. A row of small vaulted niches ornament each of the four arches. The Char Minar is a two-storied building with the first floor being covered. The balconies on this floor provide a great view of the surrounding areas. A small mosque adorns the top floor of the Charminar. This mosque is situated on the western side of the Charminar facing Mecca, the holy city of the Muslims. This mosque is said to be the oldest surviving mosque in Hyderabad city. Charminar, the hub of Hyderabad city, has four wide roads going in each direction. The Charminar is square in shape, each side measuring 100 feet, with a central pointed high arch at the center.

Apples belong to the Rose family of plants and are joined in that family by a wide range of very popular foods, including apricots, plums, cherries, peaches, pears, raspberries, and almonds. Foods in the Rose family are simply too diverse in their nutrient value to allow for any one single recommendation about the number of servings that we should consume from this family on a weekly basis. However, when focusing specifically on apples, several anti-cancer studies show daily intake of this fruit to provide better anti-cancer benefits than lesser amounts.

Design – 10/25

During Jammu Stamp Show-2011, 25 designs of Buddhist Heritage Sites in J&K were introduced.

As its name suggests (Phug means cave), the honey-comb-like Phugtal Monastery, home to more than 70 monks, stands at the opening of a large cave on a cliff above the Tsarap River. It has three large and one small prayer room whose unique, exquisite frescoes are similar to the 11th century ones of Alchi Monastery. The chorten here is believed to house the relics of Tsherap Zangpo, its founder. Csoma de Koros, regarded as the father of modern Tibetology, is said to have spent one year here. It takes a tough, arduous trek of two or three days to reach this isolated monastery, which appears to be miraculously glued on to the side of a vertical rock-face.

The imposing monastery of Phugtal, which belongs to the Gelukpa order, is a rare, unmatched sight. Phugtal Gompa offers you a glimpse of the importance of Buddhism in Ladakh.

The site is located 26 kms. away from the Jammu city in the Northern India in the state of Jammu & Kashmir.

The excavation unearthed a part of the monastic complex and a Buddhist stupa. The most important findings at the site were a silver coin, gold leaves, a tooth probably of the Lord Buddha enshrined in a casket. The site yielded beautiful terracotta parts of human figures that must have embellished the wall of the monastic complex. The moulding technique of these terracotta fingers, palms and other body parts conveys that they were made by master craftsmen who had a thorough understanding of human anatomy.

Stakna Gompa of Ladakh is  at a distance of approximately 25 km from the town of Leh. The name, ‘Stakna’ literally means ‘tiger’s nose’. The monastery was so named because it was built on a hill, which is shaped just like a tiger’s nose. Stakna Monastery of Leh Ladakh owes its inception to Chosje Jamyang Palkar, the great scholar saint of Bhutan. It formed a part of the many religious estates offered by the Dharmaraja Jamyang Namgial to the saint, around 1580 AD.

The central image inside the monastery is that of the sacred Arya Avalokitesvara from Kamrup (Assam). Stakna belongs to the Dugpa order and serves as the residence of approximately 30 monks. The successive reincarnations of the Stakna Tulku continue to serve as the incumbents of the monastery, preserving the teachings of the Dugpa order. Stakna Gompa also has a number of monasteries attached to it, namely Mud and Kharu and those of Stakrimo, Bardan and Sani in Zanskar.
