The Last Furlong

Comments on the race of life.

We went, we saw, but we didn’t see these

The Furlongs went to India. We saw amazing things. Mr Furlong said he thinks we did see a Stepwell. But I have no recollection. I think they are absolutely beautiful!  So I am sharing these stunning photographs with you. There are many photos in the article – well worth looking at – enjoy!

Thousands of stepwells were built in India starting around the 2nd and 4th centuries A.D. where they first appeared as rudimentary trenches but slowly evolved into much more elaborate feats of engineering and art. By the 11th century some stepwells were commissioned by wealthy or powerful philanthropists (almost a fourth of whom were female) as monumental tributes that would last for eternity.

I'm someone also pounding the Path, just like you.. I'm retired, going into Old Age and loving my life. I'm hoping to remain happy and well for as long as possible. Old Age is not SO bad - yet!

  1. Fascinating architecture, but they look extremely dangerous to me. I wouldn’t want to slip on one of those steps.
