- Historical architecture
Old, man made objects are awesome, especially those who have a rich history to them or those that are build with still unknown techniques. Objects such as the pyramids, Mayan temples or the Chinese wall for example.
What you’re seeing in this photo is the left side of the Knights hall in the Hague. From origin this hall was the banquet hall of the 13th century building complex and at that time was called the big, or great hall. It was built for Count Willem II and completed under Count Floris V. Since 1904 this hall is used yearly on the third Tuesday of September to host a so called ‘Verenigde Vergadering der Staten-Generaal’ which translates to English as ‘United Assembly of the States’ I think. In this assembly of the states, the king pronounces the throne speech which is a government statement covering past events and future plans.
