Domes & Minarets

A photo taken during my annual visit to Brighton, England, which took place three weeks ago. This is the Royal Pavilion in the heart of Brighton, which I have shown once before.

The Royal Pavilion a former royal residence, built for George, Prince of Wales (the later King George IV) in Indo-Saracenic style. Architect John Nash designed its current form with all those many domes and minarets, in the early 19th century. Some decades later Queen Victoria was less enthusiastic about the palace and sold it to the city of Brighton. In the First World War, the Pavilion was used as a military hospital for wounded and sick soldiers from the Indian Army. After WW2, the city of Brighton has been working on restoring the Pavilion to its original state at George IV's time and it is open to visitors.
