Total Solar Eclipse:
1995 October, 24
Location: Fatepur Sikri, Outside
Fetapur Sikri is a well preserved deserted 17th century Mogul city/ruin
with a still-active Mosque.
An indian myth has Rahu,
a demon who steals life giving ambrsia from Surya, the Sun God. An
angry Surya cuts off Rahu's head before the liquid penetrates his
body. Rahu's imortal head flies up into the sky where he is ever chasing
the sun for revenge. But as Rahu has no body, when he occasionally
catches Surya, the sun, an eclipse occurs, but the sun falls out through
his bodiless head and thus the Sun returns.
