Look at the pictures given below. Decide in your group which regions the six photos probably come from. Explain why you think so and find out from your teacher if you were correct. Then write a short caption for each photograph. It can be serious or funny.
The architecture of the building in picture no. 1 gives the idea that it may be a Hindu temple. The tall but not round structure at the top is much like what we find in Hindu temples. It has a sanctum sanatorium in which the idol of the chief deity is installed.
The picture no. 2 seems to be a mausoleum. It is so because there is no place for prayer etc, which is the hallmark of a religious place. Or it may be burj of a palace in Rajasthan.
Picture no. 3 is clearly a folk dance. The dresses of the girl and the boy brings to mind Maharashtra. Hence it is very likely to be a folk dance of Maharashtra.
Picture no. 4 is a tea garden. Such tea gardens are found in Assam or Darjeeling or Ootacumand in Tamil Nadu.
Picture no. 5 gives the picture of a river and a series of temples by its side. It is a religious place, Varanasi in Uttar Pradesh.
