  6. Elephanta caves are my most favourite haunt in Mumbai. I love the boat ride from Gateway of India to the caves.

  13. Now that is really old. If there is something older it has to be animal-made instead of man-made.

  17. I think it certainly qualifies as old. What caught my eye was the short skirt the woman is wearing; it is back in style again this year:)

  21. I love antique buildings and carvings - also utility items like pots and drinking vessels and tools. It's humbling to think man has been making these wonderful things for so long. We are here for the blink of an eye.

  22. 7AD is old, but i recently went to a place where tehre were remnants of paintings that were from 1500 BC (very very old!)

  23. I guess you really have an advantage in this theme. There's not too much you can find in my corner of the world that would approach this! Excellent work!
