Photo Excursion To King Ahmed’s Tomb in Rural India

King Ahmed Basu’s Tomb is not one of India’s most visited attractions, odds are you have never even heard of it even if you are from India or even from the state of Maharashtra where this tomb is located. But somehow a Westerner I know who lives in India, knew about it. When I traveled to India he invited me and another guy to come with him on a photo excursion. So an American, a Mexican, and an Israeli got their cameras ready for the field trip. 

More specifically, this tomb is located in Ahmednagar, a small Indian city about 2 hours away from the bigger Indian city, Pune.

It was a very interesting and fun experience and I captured quite a bit of it. Even though I did cover my head, I did experience post-trip heat exhaustion. But it was worth it.

As we further explored we came across one big family (or a few families) who live in the premises. We could not communicate but they seemed quite joyful and hardworking.

There were also a few animal inhabitants: cows, goats, dogs, birds… And I’m sure the occasional snake and other small creatures.

It was a pretty amazing day exploring around king Ahmed’s tomb, even though I got overheated.
