If ever there was a country which has seen a mammoth change in its landscape in the last 150 years, then it has to be our beloved homeland – India. We may arguably be the oldest civilization in the world, but if we look at it from a different lens we realize that we are one of the youngest democracies in the world. Hence, within the last century and a half itself, we have seen gargantuan changes in the political and physical scapes altogether. We have witnessed two recorded battles of freedom, and lots of intermittent activities of friction before finally attaining independence in 1947. Apart from the obvious pieces of struggle, the communal tensions have also left indelible marks on the hearts of our country. The greatest example here would be the demolition of the 500-year-old Babri Masjid in Gujarat by religious zealots.

Without letting this piece take a tricky religious turn, I would come straight to the point. I present to you the biggest (literally & metaphorically) indicators of change in Indian history – their historical monuments and places of national/international fame.

Here are the 16 ancient pictures of India’s Most Famous Places/Monuments:
