hi, my 2 cents worth
Your framing is well composed, though some of your exposures can be tweaked a little.
most of your shots seem to be taken late morning, or in the afternoon. I believe that you didn't use any polarizor filters.
Would suggest trying to take the shots in the wee hours of the morning, or towards the night. Cos i feel that the sky is a bit too washed out and could be improved with different times of the day and filters.
Try to take some macro shots the next time you travel to such places. focusing on an ancient brick or some detail of a famous monument will also bring you a wider latitude of photography.

thanks for your comments..
stefan, u r rite.. no filters used at all.. i was using a c5050 at its bare minimum..
i'm still trying to gauge my exposure and improve on this aspect.. metering seems to be a challenge at times too..
the washed out perception is due to the very strong sunlight then.. it was very bright .. hot and dry season..
how does a polarizer help in this case?

the polariser will cut down on stray light/flare/reduce reflections.
