#DidYouKnow that the Nassak #Diamond, one of the 20 greatest diamonds in the world, is named after the city of Nashik in Maharashtra? Emerging from the famed Golconda mines, it adorned the crown of Lord Shiva in the Trimbakeshwar #Temple near Nashik. 1/4
#jewellery #minerals
As with most of the world’s most valuable #gems, the Nassak too has a dramatic story. It was originally with the #Mughals, who acquired it during their conquest of Golconda in the 17th century. Then they surrendered it as war booty to the #Marathas. 2/4
The Nassak was probably donated to the Trimbakeshwar temple by the Peshwas. In 1817, it was removed by Peshwa Bajirao II, who kept it in his personal treasure. Bajirao II surrendered it to the #British, who seized it when they defeated the Marathas a year later. 3/4

رتیشور مندر، ورنسائی (اتر پردیش، بھارت)
Rateshwar Temple, Varansai__1825ء
یہ وینس (اٹلی) ھے نہ پیسا۔
پیسا(اٹلی) کا ٹیڑھا مینار (Leaning Tower) تو سب نے یقیناً سنا ھو گا مگر رتیشور کے جھکے ھوئے مندر کے بارے میں ہرگز نہیں واقف ھوں گےجو پیسا سے زیادہ ٹیڑھا اور پانی
پر کھڑا ھے۔
پیسا 4 ڈگری سے جھکا ھوا ھے جبکہ 74 فٹ بلند رتیشور مندر 9 ڈگری سے جھکا ھوا ھے۔
مندر ناگرا سٹائل پر بل کھاتا ھوا طرزِ تعمیر ھے۔
مندرکےٹیڑھےپن سے ایک دلچسپ کہانی منسوب ھے۔ خیال کیا جاتا ھے کہ مندر کو راجہ مان کےایک ملازم نے اسکی مرحوم والدہ رتنبائی کی یادمیں تعمیرکیاتھا۔
مندرمکمل کرنےپر اس نےسب کو بتایا کہ اس مندر کی تعمیر سے اس نے اپنی ماں کا قرض ادا کیا ھے۔ چونکہ ماں کا قرض (Matri-rin) کبھی واپس نہیں کیاجاسکا اور اس لیے مندر پر آفت نازل ھو گئی۔ اسلیے بھی مندر متری-رن مہادیو (Mahadev Debt) کہلاتا ھے۔
یہ بات طےھے کہ مندر لعنت یافتہ ھے۔اسمیں تاحال

Recall Hindus being forced to change the annual route of the religious procession on the occasion of #DurgaPuja, #RamNavmi, etc, lest it provokes the “peaceful” in and around the mosques. Recall many a subsequent riots took place when processions moved on d roads.
And recall in West Bengal, Kerala, Maharashtra and many other places an “awake and alert” administration would put ban on processions on roads adjoining mosques, mazar, etc, to respect the sensibilities of the other faith. Here the roads occupied close to #Temple ?

1) Today I want to talk to you all about one of the projects I'm the most excited for: @templedao

What is TempleDAO? Think of TempleDAO as an automated hedge-fund with different investment strategies to fine-tune your risk exposure and shelter your bags from volatility Image
2) The developers of TempleDAO describe the protocol as "a safe place for DeFi believers to rest, recuperate, and prepare for their next risk-on trade."

Originally ideated as an #OlympusDAO fork, TempleDAO follows the (3,3) set and forget staking principles of OHM.
3) Stakers deposit $TEMPLE tokens in order to receive compounding TEMPLE rewards from the protocol. Like OHM, TEMPLE can be either purchased from the open market or directly from the protocol at a discount. From there protocol rewards are fairly distributed to TEMPLE holders

#RomanSiteSaturday - The Temple of Garni 🏛️

(1/7) The Temple Garni is situated in the village of Garni in #Armenia, and stands as the only Greco-Roman temple in the nation. It sits on a cliff edge by the Azat River and the Gegham mountains.

#Classics #Archaeology #History
(2/7) Constructed in the 1st century CE, it was most likely built under the Armenian king Tiridates I as a temple of Mihr, the Armenian sun god. Supported and crowned as king by the Roman Emperor Nero, it is thought Tiridates adopted Mihr as his patron deity and protector.
(3/7) Stylistically, the temple is a blend of Ancient Greek architecture and local Armenian influences. Decorated with Ionic columns, it is constructed with local grey basalt and without mortar, instead being held together with iron clamps. It also features floral friezes.

must have been an important village, certainly far more important than Sullurpeta which must have been of a fairly recent origin. The basis for saying that Mannarpolur must have been an important village is the fact that this temple is believed to date back to the 10th century Image

One of my favourite things to do is walk around the “city”.

Had one such walk last night and captured some of the “dying breeds” as I see board after board with names like “9 Sadashiv” etc!

Thanks @kunal_tilak for baptising me on the “Pune Misal” at Badshahi!

Why Temples are attacked?
A thread!

The three reasons for attacks on Hindu Temples are:

1. Economic
2. Religious
3. Political
