Great holmertz 2022-01-14 3:00

Hello Malgo,
Finally a place I remember well. I realize from the note that I have seen the three largest temples (but you missed Borobudur, didn't you?). There were probably just as many tourists in Karnak during my visit. The main photo and first WS have very beautiful warm tones and are very sharp.
Kind regards,
Gert

Talking To holmertz: Borobudur

Hi Gert, Thanks for the critique.
The guide in Karnak told that Karnak was the largest. My immediate thought was: what about Angkor? So I checked Google.
I was so close to seeing Borobudur, because of covid I couldn't see it. And most probably I never will.
There are various lists, it depends on the definition. The first three are for sure. One list is interesting: Angkor Wat, Karnak, Borobudur, Akshardham in Delhi (something new, I haven't heard about it), Sri Ranganathaswamy (in Srirangapatna), Jetavanaramaya (Sri Lanka), Tikal (Guatemala), Brihadeswaara (in Tanjavur), Meenakshi and Baalbek. I saw 5. I am afraid you are better .

best regards MAlgo

As I supposed. You saw Borobudur and Baalbeck, I saw Tikal.

Jetavanaramaya was too close to the civil war zone when I was in Sri Lanka, and Akshardham was finished years after my last visit to Delhi. Otherwise... ;-)

I'm starting to doubt if I've seen Jetavanaramaya. It's very close to Anuradhapura where I was....but my slides are stored so deep... too deep to look up.

Akshardham was also constructed after my visit of Delhi.
You'll never get around if people still build after you've been there

Fortunately Rome wasn't built in a day, so we all had plenty of time for it.

When I see new places from the UNESCO list, they add new ones.
