#DYK that the world’s ‘oldest’ recorded zero symbol is in India
It's at #Gwalior’s Chaturbhuj Temple
The Hindu temple excavated in a rock face in the Gwalior Fort, in c875 AD, by Alla, the son of Vaillabhatta of the Gurjara-Pratihara dynasty is a sought after monument
One of the temples inscriptions contains the earliest known inscription of the circular symbol "O", to represent zero, in India, though the Bakhshali manuscript is regarded as the earliest existent use of zero
@RomeshNadir @amritabhinder @MeghBulletin @OsintUpdates @centerofright
The inscription reads among other things that the community planted a garden of 187 hastas by 270 hastas (1 hasta = 1.5 ft), that the garden yielded 50 garlands for the temple every day
The last digits of 270 & 50 are "O" shaped

So I recently moved from #Delhi to #Bangalore and the easiest and fastest way I could move my work desk setup (monitors, PC, gaming chair) and my car was to stuff all that into the 🚗 and drive it all the way down.

So here's a smol thread 🧵 on a DEL-BLR road trip. Image
Day 1 was planned to be #Delhi to #Gwalior. But that would have left a very long 2nd day, so we planned to go a little further to Jhansi.

A complete chance browsing through @bookingcom led us to discover this beautiful Bundelkhand Riverside Resort at Orchcha to stay. Image
Day 1 was 425 km. Total drive time was 10hrs+, because we stopped at Agra to visit @TajMahal too.

Booked Hotel Atulyaa Taaj (apart from Oberoi Amarvilas, this is the nearest hotel to Taj) simply as an expensive parking spot 😅 as the car was loaded with stuff. Image
