Creator's description

From the public laundry we go to visit some of the Mogul monuments of Allahabad, one of which is the tomb of Prince Khusru, son of the Emperor Jahangir.

In contrast to the old Moslem monuments here is a new Hindu monument in course of construction. It depicts Lord Krishna, one of the heroes of Hindu mythology, together with his charioteer Arjun.
