I am a person who likes to enjoy my own company and I would go to all these historical monuments and walk through the ancient walls and clicking pictures of them. Well, the historical monuments still continue to fascinate me with their amazing and glorious past. I would examine each and every picture on the walls of Ajanta Caves and wonder how they built the Leaning Tower of Pisa. There is a show called Secrets of Great British Castles which talks about the same. If you are a history freak just like me you should definitely check out the series once. I am sure you would love the show.
