॥ '#ज्ञानवापी’ (ज्ञान का कुआँ) बनारस ॥

मूल श्रीकाशीविश्वनाथ मन्दिर परिसर, #वाराणसी में अष्टकोणीय ‘ज्ञानवापी’ (ज्ञान का कुआँ) ठीक उसी प्रकार अवस्थित है जिस प्रकार मक्का के ‘मक्केश्वर महादेव मन्दिर’ (सम्प्रति ‘अल्-मस्जिद-अल्-हरम’) परिसर में ‘गंगाजलम्’ (‘जमजम’) अवस्थित है।
शिवलिंग पर जलाभिषेक हेतु शिवालय में कुएँ की व्यवस्था, प्राचीन वैदिक परम्परा है। कहने की आवश्यकता नहीं कि ‘ज्ञानवापी' का जल श्रीकाशीविश्वनाथजी पर चढ़ाया जाता था।
ब्रिटिश लाइब्रेरी, लन्दन; लाइब्रेरी ऑफ़ काँग्रेस, वाशिंगटन; जे. पॉल गेट्टी म्यूज़ियम, कैलिफोर्निया, इत्यादि में विदेशी फ़ोटोग्राफ़रों द्वारा सन् १८५९ से १९१० के मध्य लिए गए ज्ञानवापी के अनेक चित्र संगृहीत हैं जिनको देखकर रोमांच हो उठता है।
इन फ़ोटोग्राफ़रों में फेलिस बीटो (१८३२-१९०९), सैम्युअल बर्न (१८३४-१९१२), विलियम हैरी जैक्सन (१८४३-१९४२), आदि प्रमुख हैं। इन चित्रों में विभिन्न कोणों से ज्ञानवापी, उसके आसपास अवस्थित #नन्दी और गणपति आदि की प्रतिमाओं का अवलोकन किया जा सकता है।

The Durbar of 1903 was held in Delhi to celebrate the succession of the British monarch King Edward VII (the great-grandfather of the British monarch, Queen Elizabeth II) as the Emperor of India.
The Delhi Durbar was organized by Lord Curzon, India’s viceroy. The original plan was for Edward himself to come to India for a special coronation ceremony, but when the King refused (he was conspicuously less interested in India) Curzon decided to stage a huge spectacle instead.
After two years’ planning, the ceremonies began on 29 Dec 1902 with a lavish parade of elephants through the streets. Guests included a wide range of Indian princes & maharajas, with the Duke of Connaught representing the British Royal Family.
The actual Durbar was held on…
