Cetshwayo, also spelled Cetewayo, (born c. 1826, near Eshowe, Zululand [now in South Africa]—died Feb. 8, 1884, Eshowe), last great king of the independent Zulus (reigned 1872–79), whose strong military leadership and political acumen restored the power and prestige of the Zulu nation, which had declined during the reign of his father, Mpande (Panda). As absolute ruler of a rigidly disciplined army of 40,000 men, Cetshwayo was considered a threat to British colonial interests; the Anglo-Zulu War (1879) and subsequent destruction of Zulu power removed that threat.
Cetshwayo distinguished himself early in life, taking part in the 1838 Zulu attempt to evict the invading Boers from Natal, and in the early 1850s he was involved in fighting between the Zulu and the Swazi for control of the Pongola region. By the mid-1850s Cetshwayo was head of a young Zulu group known as the Usuthu. “Kindly continue reading by scrolling through the pictures above “ #zulu#southafrica#kingdom#independent#africa#eshowe#native#strongman#boers#army#zululand#sovereignty#transvaal#colony#warriors#british#history#scholar#system
PSALM 145:13 (VOICE) // How GREAT is our God?! I mean really?! He will never let you down and He is always there in times of trouble and pain. Our God has established an eternal kingdom and called us His sons and daughters, his heirs!! He has given us access to His power. We shall never fail when He is with us. Praise be to the ONE who never lies to us, comes through on all He says, and gives us grace and mercy each day. Praise be to our PROVIDER. Lord, we are expectant of BIG things this year because you are doing a new thing. Your word says you are faithful and true in your actions and words, so we walk in faith according to your promises. Amen! #heisgood
and be as big as the herbs of the field! You are great and old enough, even to your breasts are plump, your hair has grown, But you are naked naked. I washed you with water to cleanse your blood from you and I anointed you with oil. Thus thou shalt decorate thyself with gold, and silver, thy garments of fine linen, and of silk and of colorful fabrics; your food is the best flour, honey and oil and you are so Beautiful that it is worthy to' be Queen.
dan jadilah besar seperti tumbuh-tumbuhan di ladang! Engkau menjadi besar dan sudah cukup umur, bahkan sudah sampai pada masa mudamu. Maka buah dadamu sudah montok, rambutmu sudah tumbuh,tetapi engkau dalam keadaan telanjang bugil.Aku membasuh engkau dengan air untuk membersihkan darahmu dari padamu dan Aku mengurapi engkau dengan minyak.Dengan demikian engkau menghias dirimu dengan emas dan perak, pakaianmu lenan halus dan sutera dan kain berwarna-warna; makananmu ialah tepung yang terbaik, madu dan minyak dan engkau menjadi sangat cantik, sehingga layak menjadi ratu. (Yehezkiel 16:7,9,13).

Door to pure nature.....❤️ The fort was built in the 9th century, and it was renovated in the 14th century by CheluvarangappaKavaledurga, also called Bhuvanagiri, was a stronghold of the Nayakas of Keladi, who were the feudatories under the Vijayaanagara rulers and later became independent after the fall of the Vijayanagara kingdom. Venkatappa Nayaka (1582-1629) fortified the place here. Built a palace and made it an Agrahara with a Mahattina Matha. A Sringeri Matha. A treasury, a granary, stables for elephants and horses and ponds. The fort at Kavaledurga has three lines of walls, which are constructed of huge granite blocks following the natural contour of the hillock. Each fortification has a gateway flanked by guard- rooms on either side In between the fortifications there are temples, a ruined palace site and basement of structures. At the summit of the hill almost at the centre overlooking the western sea is a small temple popularly known as Shikhareshvara or Srikanthesvara temple. The Srikanthesvara temple on plan has a Garbhagriha. A Nandi.mantapa and an entrance porch commanding a fine view of the setting sun beyond the western horizon.
