2017 Russia : 50th Anniversary of the Ostankino TV-tower MS. Here on registered cover:

Image

From the internet
The anniversary stamp depicts the Ostankino tower festively lit up and the building of the Ostankino Television Centre which like the television tower was constructed half a century ago, in November 1967. The landmarks are seen on the background of an evening sky which is decorated with the number 50. The tower and the television centre are presented from the most picturesque side namely the Ostankinsky Pond.

The television tower was officially opened on 5 November 1967. It is 540 metres high. When it was built, it was the tallest tower in the world. Later skyscrapers in Dubai, Shanghai and New York became the tallest but it has retained its leadership position in Russia as well as in Europe. After the tower’s opening in 1967, four television and three radio broadcasting channels became operational in the USSR. Currently, the tower transmits signals from over 40 television and radio channels.

The Ostankino tower offers daily tours to its Museum of Television and Radio Broadcasting and to the observation deck which is located at a height of 337 metres. The deck opens onto a panoramic view of the whole city. For the first time this year the 85th floor was opened up to the public. The storey which had before been off bounds provides a view of both the city plus the inner structure of the tower.

Araniko (1245-1306), was a Nepalese architect who was one of the key figures in the arts of Nepal, and Tibet and Yuan Dynasty of China. His most renowned architecture is the White Stupa of Miaoying Temple in Beijing, completed in 1288; the Stupa, known as White Dagoba, is still standing today. Here is an image of a stamp depicting Araniko and the White Dagoba, printed by lithography, and issued by Nepal on April 13, 1972, plus a photo of the statue of Araniko at Miaoying Temple, and a photo of White Dagoba.

The Château de Chambord at Chambord, Loir-et-Cher, France, is one of the most recognisable châteaux in the world because of its very distinctive French Renaissance architecture which blends traditional French medieval forms with classical Renaissance structures. The building, which was never completed, was constructed by King Francis I of France.

Chambord is the largest château in the Loire Valley; it was built to serve as a hunting lodge for Francis I, who maintained his royal residences at the Château de Blois and Amboise. The original design of the Château de Chambord is attributed, though with some doubt, to Domenico da Cortona; Leonardo da Vinci may also have been involved.
Flooding in June 2016 damaged the grounds but not the château itself.

Aga Khan Award for Architecture (AKAA) - The award is given for architectural achievements in the field of modern design, social construction, development of local public spaces, preservation of historical heritage, maintenance and development of territories, as well as in the field of landscape design and environmental improvement.


Situated in the heart of the city of Agra, India; the majestic red sandstone Agra Fort is an iconic Mughal Monument and was added to UNESCO’s world Heritage List in 1983. To commemorate the Ninth Cycle of AKAA two postage stamps featuring Agra Fort were issued. Here is the image of beautiful Indian Miniature Sheet from 2004.
