History of golden gate

According to most trusted encyclopedia wikipedia Before the Europeans arrived in the 18th century, the area around the strait and the bay was inhabited by the Ohlone to the south and Coast Miwok people to the north.
On August 5, 1775 Juan de Ayala and the crew of his ship San Carlos became the first Europeans known to have passed through the strait, anchoring in a cove behind Angel Island, the cove now named in Ayala’s honor. Until the 1840s, the strait was called the “Boca del Puerto de San Francisco” (“Mouth of the Port of San Francisco”). On July 1, 1846, before the discovery of gold in California, the entrance acquired a new name. In his memoirs, John C. Frémont wrote, “To this Gate I gave the name of ‘Chrysopylae’, or ‘Golden Gate’; for the same reasons that the harbor of Byzantium was called Chrysoceras, or Golden Horn.

भारत के ऐतिहासिक स्मारक

भारत के स्मारक और स्थान

मुगल आक्रंताओ ने हमारे न जाने कितनी ऐतिहासिक इमारतों और स्मारकों को नष्ट करके वह पर सिर्फ इस्लाम की उन्नति को दर्शाने वाली इमारते और स्मारक बना दी, इनमे से ढ़ाई दिन का झोपड़ा, क़ुतुब मीनार, यहाँ तक की कई इतिहास कार तो ताज महल के लिए भी कहते है की ताजमहल की ईमारत के पीछे एक हिन्दू मंदिर था जो की भगवान शिव को समर्पित था, चुकी इतिहास लेखन का ज्यादातर समय मुगल काल में बीच ही रहा है इसलिए सभी चाटुकार इतिहासकारो ने मुगलो के महिमा मंडन और हिन्दू धार्मिक स्थलों, इमारतों और स्मारकों के खण्डन को चुप चाप दबा दिया और हमारी पीढ़ी को ये मानने पर विवश कर दिया की हिन्दुओ के जो स्थल, स्मारक या इमारते नही है वो नहीं थी.

भारतीय स्मारक

हम उन भवनों एवं प्रतीक चिन्हो को ऐतिहासिक इमारते कहते है जिनक निर्माण किसी विशेष प्रयोजन के लिए किया गया हो अथवा जिसमे कोई बहुत बड़ी ऐतिहासिक महत्त्व की कोई घटना घटी हो, जैसे किसी भवन का निर्माण किसी विशेष युद्ध के पश्चात करवाया गया हो या जिसके कारन कोई बाद युद्ध हुआ हो, अथवा जिसका निर्माण किसी विशेष परिस्थितिओ या प्रयोजन के लिए हुआ हो, और जो वर्षो वर्ष बीत जाते के बाद भी उसी भव्यता और विशिष्टता के साथ खड़ा हो।

हम यहाँ पर पुरे भारत देश में स्थित एवं निर्माणित ऐतिहासिक महत्त्व की इमारतों एवं स्मारकों का वर्णन करेंगे, उनके निमित्त कुछ ऐतिहासिक तथ्य सारणी के माध्यम से बतायेगे तथा अन्य जानकारी भी हिंदी और अंगेजी दोनों भाषाओ में देंगे।

अगर पुरातत्व विभाग निष्पक्ष रूप से हर मस्जिद की जाँच करे तो कही न कही उसके गर्भ में हिन्दू स्मारकों और इमारतों का मालवा जरूर निकलेगा, पर अभी भी देश में कुछ भारतीय ऐतिहासिक स्मारक है जो हिन्दुस्थान की में संस्कृति की रक्षा कर रहा है।

सर्वे ऑफ़ इंडिया की स्थापना

जब भारत में अंग्रेजों का शासन था तो उन्होंने सोचा था की वो यहाँ हमेशा राज करते रहेंगे और जो भी यहाँ के स्थापत्य, और कला के केंद्र या ऐतिहासिक इमारते है उनको धीरे धीरे अपने नाम पर कर लेंगे की ये हमने बनवाये है, इसी को पूरा करने के उद्देस्य से उन्होंने १७६७ में देहरादून में सर्वे ऑफ़ इंडिया की स्थापना की जिसे भारत का पुरातत्व सर्वेक्षण विभाग भी कहा जाता है, इसका काम सिर्फ ये था की कौन सी ईमारत कितनी पुरानी है, इसकी क्या खासियत है, कब बनी, किसने बनवायी, क्यों बनवायी, लेकिन स्वतंत्र के बाद इसी संस्था ने बहुत सी इमारतों को खोजै और उनको नया जीवन दिया।
