My admittedly surreal take on the awe-inspiring 48m tall Kalyan Minaret in Bukhara, Uzbekistan. In 1220, Genghis Khan stood where I stood. While craning his neck to see the top, his hat supposedly fell off. He was so impressed by the tower's audacity, he ordered it be left standing while his army razed Bukhara to the ground.
I thought I'd enter this for the new architectural weekly theme, which is a guest post brought to you by Helen. If you enjoy this pic, I'll share a big post on the architecture of Uzbekistan before the end of this week.
Thanks for taking a look and good luck with your own weekly theme entries!
