One of the greatest mughal kings Akbar was buried in Sikandra at Agra. He chose the place when he was alive and also the design that would be. The inner hall, where Akbar was buried is simple with plain walls and no decorations and carvings, simplest of all kings of the era.

Commemorating First world war in Brussels

Brussels capital region will be commemorating the First World War starting this year and for next four years. While Brussels saw no major accomplishments during the First World War it was, as the capital of Belgium, the most fitting place to mark the First World War, on a local, national as well as international level. The first thing people think of in this regard is the Monument for the Unknown Soldier, yet there is much more besides; with no less than six hundred street names, commemorative plaques or monuments dedicated to remembrance. Street names and monuments should remind people for years to come of the honourable fallen, and heroes both national and local; they should keep alive the names of major battle fields, and express collective recognition.
