    Thank you for writing me such a nice email. But actually that mail was just forwarded by me – original source was at the bottom of the sent email. But my work starts from there, Investigating and understanding the the monuments and its construction by the scientific principles of Maths and Engineering. One need to measure the ACCURATE dimensions to study the scientific construction of the KUND 1) Need to measure inclination of all four walls of the Kund, Supposed to be same. But that can be measured with Most upper layer of Kund Measurement “U”AND MOST LOWER layer “L” measurements. and the Depth “D” from Upper layer to Lower layer U-L will give the difference at the Depth D U-L/2D= will give the Tangent of the Angle of the inclination of the all four side of the KUND. In Trigonometry Tan theta = front side / other side of the rectangular triagle 2) Exact directions – is is perfectly E _ W_ N _S or not if it is Takea PICTURE from above at LOCAL TOME NOON 12 – for Jaipur Local Noon time is 12:30 PM This Well is at the location of Longitude 76.6068 E means the Location LOCAL TIME is about 24 Minuets LATER than the IST time means LOCAL NOON TOME for the Location will be 12: 24PM -to be accurate 12:23:36 PM (to experiment and measurements to take readings and pictures on the LOCAL NOON TIME at 12:23:36 PM on the summer solstice day of 21 JUNE of the year) The Location is 27 N means 3.55 Degree North of Tropic of Cancer 23.45 N – So on Summer Solstice when The SUN reaches to Tropic of Cancer the Sun rise on Tropic of Cancer in the Morning will be at the 23.45 N in the East Direction. Which is 3.55 degree south of the Location. So at this Latitude the Sun rise never Happen at the perfect East. but 3.5 degree towards the south In the EAST. So to face the exact direction the Structure is constructed such way it face in the sun rise direction . So the Structure need to be constructed 3.55 degree oblique to wards the south. as it is in the Map attached. But need to be measured perfectly on LOCATION geometrically and Astronomically. 3) Exact Location of the KUND Longitude N Latitude E WGS84 27° 0′ 25.92″ N, 76° 36′ 24.48″ E 27.0072 N, 76.6068 E 4) COMPARE RESULTS OF 1) WITH THE 4TH AND SEE IF THAT MATCH WITH LATITUDE and also make sure the accuracy of the measurement methods with the picture records 5) IF IT DOES – YOU CAN MAKE ALL MEASUREMENTS OF EARTH AND SUN , AU AND SPACE AS IT WORKS AS REVERSE OF THE PYRAMID IN THE GROUND. Respected Dr Ji, You have really done a great service by sending a short writeup and very visual pictures of this great step well near Jaipur in Rajasthan. I stayed for over a decade at Jaipur in the 1970-80s and I have visited this great well. I am sure many of the readers of your e mail would appreciate this engineering marvel – unique of the features in Rajasthan.It is rightly said that it is still in immaculate condition. Thanks again. Regards,

    More About Asia

    Asia is the biggest continent on Earth, a darling little gem floating around in space.Hm, what is Asia? Who's in on it?China and India are safe bets for Asian nations. Korea, Japan, Thailand, you're fine.Europe? No. Europe would sort of be on the "Asian continent" if not for those pesky Ural mountains dividing things up in the middle, and then also the whole lineage of kings and wealth and nations and the EU and all that "give me my respect" stuff.Russia would probably be happiest as its own continent, so for now we'll leave it in "Eurasia" and just hope the natural gas supplies keep flowing.Pakistan and Afghanistan are dang close to Asia, but politically they show up in "Middle East" news stories an awful lot. Verdict: Eurasia.I guess we'll actually have to consider everything from Turkey on eastward to be "Eurasian", although the moniker seems overlappitory of the territory.The Asian economy is now officially raging like a wild furnace of lava that consumes everything in its path. Japan has had the largest individual economy in Asia for decades, but it is forecast that both India and China will outstrip Japan within twenty years.China is the largest holder of United States debt and is positioned to become the world's next superpower, provided that Godzilla doesn't return and decide to stomp everybody back into the Shang Dynasty.Text by Steve Smith.
