Picture of the Day

Sepia-toned photo-lithograph of a wash sketch, showing the flat topped hillock of Dev Kala, near the right margin. The range in the centre and the conical hill to the left is called Koh-e Chash Baba on some maps. The hillock, which is also distinguishable on Google earth, is crowned by remains of fortifications.
