Very interesting picture. It fascinates me but something is wrong with it - I don't know what. Is it the cut monument?

Dear Debasis,

I would like to add this to photographer's note.

Rudraprayag - A small pilgrim town on the holy confluence of river Alaknanda and Mandakini. Rudraprayag is named after Rudra, an aspect of Lord Shiva. According to a legend Lord Shiva appeared here as 'Rudra' to bless Narad Muni. An ancient shrine is dedicated to Lord Shiva in the form of 'Rudra'.

Most major Himalayan rivers are older than the mountains. The river basins follow the location of the original pre-Himalayan rivers that drained the Tibetan marginal mountains and flowed into the Tethys Sea 75 million years ago. As the mountains rose, the rivers were able to cut through them. This is why the Kali Gandaki, Arun, Bhote Kosi, Buri Gandaki and the Karnali all have their headwaters beyond the main chain of the Himalaya and have cut stupendous gorges through the rising rock.

Best wishes-Subhash
