Best Architecture Photography Spots

Historic Brooklyn

Angelo Rotta Bank

For a frontal shot of the Houses of Parliament, the best spot is just across the river (Batthyany tér underground stop on Line 2, or Halasz utca if you’re looking for a parking spot). There’s a promenade all along the Buda side, so you have a lot of options to…

Dodhara Chandani Suspension Bridge

For the local residents of Dodhara-Chandani, the 1.60 m wide and 1452.96 m long pedestrian bridge is the only link to the remaining landmass of their district across the Mahakali. Before construction of the bridge, the folks of Dodhara and Chandani had to travel all the way to Khatima in…

The temple is dedicated to Janaki, the wife of Lord Rama. A wide angle lens is must. You can also try some panorama shots. Early morning trip could avoid the rush of devotees in the temple. You can visit round the year unless you are afraid of the scorching heat…
