Givens Castle...One of the most haunted sites on the South Side of Chicago is the Beverly Unitarian Church or “The Castle.” The Castle is located on 103rd and Longwood in the Beverly neighborhood of Chicago. Robert Givens, a successful real estate developer turned author, built the Castle in 1886 and requested that it be modeled after the ancient estates in his native Ireland. Some people say that Givens built the house as a gift for his fiance who died before the house was finished.

Set into the snow, this abandoned house had the artist working in below zero temperatures to get the interior and exterior carved out just right. During the coldest months the dilapidated house was sprayed with thousands of gallons of water and left to freeze. The result was chilling, and at some points looks more like a thick coat of white acrylic Artists, Winter, Canada, Toilets, Funny, Shower, House, Extreme Weather, Bathroom Windows

The Kowloon Walled City was located just outside Hong Kong, China during British rule. A former watchpost to protect the area against pirates, it was occupied by Japan during World War II and subsequently taken over by squatters after Japan’s surrender. Neither Britain nor China wanted responsibility for it, so it became its own lawless city.

One of my favorite places I traveled to in my late 20's was to a small castle ruin in Wales. It was a quiet place & I got headphones with narration to walk thru while listening to stories of the battles, day-day lives of the great old warriors of Wales. Great memory!

This is a picture of the Hindu Temple Shiv Mandir in Bangalore, India -- a 65ft statue of Lord Shiva. It was interesting how peaceful it looked and how the temple is very symmetric and balanced.
Shiva is a major Hindu deity, and is the Destroyer or Transformer among the Trimurti, the Hindu Trinity of the primary aspects of the divine. He is regarded as the most powerful god in Hinduism.

Uspenskoe Mansion, Moscow area, near Zvenigorod. One of the last owners of this castle was Sergei Morozov, who allowed many prominent Russian painters (including Levitan) to live in this house. It actually boggles the mind (keeping in mind the rich cultural history of the place, and it's sheer architectural beauty) that all this time it was left in ruins...
