WPC PHOTO CHALLENGE theme this week is Heritage. I visited Cyprus few years back, at At the Tombs of the Kings (Pathos) you could feel the history the heritage. The underground tombs, many of which date back to the 4th century BC, are carved out of solid rock, and are thought to have been the burial sites of Paphitic aristocrats and high officials up to the third century AD.

The white sand in Thailand…the sea.
I had trouble deciding what kind of pictures I would like to add to this. Here are two different approaches to it. The first picture are taken in valley of the Kings in Cyprus
Spread over a vast area, these impressive underground tombs date back to the 4th century BC. They are carved out of solid rock while some are decorated with Doric pillars. High officials rather than Kings were buried here, but the magnificence of the tombs gave the locality its name.
The other set is home of the elephant farm workers in Thailand…totally different take.
