This is the third photo essay of my trip to Runnymede, the place where the Magna Carta was signed way back in 1215AD.
Its a domed classical style of what I can only say is a temple.
A plaque on the left as you enter talks about the Magna Carta (I have seen two copies of this document till now, one at the British Museum and another at Salisbury Cathedral). The heraldic shields around the plaque belong to the various assorted Nobles who popped in to force King John to sign the charter.
Hello? what is this?
Somebody left a wreath and flowers at the base of this oak tree. What’s going on?
As a tribute to the historic Magna Carta, a source of inspiration throughout the world, and as an affirmation of the values of Freedom, Democracy and the Rule of Law which the People of India cherish and have enshrined in their Constitution. March 16, 1994
Pretty interesting, eh? the number of grand poo bah’s who have made a beeline to here to celebrate the signing of a document almost 900 years back.
