It was really interesting to look at different currencies and try knowing what all those things are. So just wanted to share about the pictures on the currency of my beloved Nation.
As shown in the picture (from internet).

Rs 100/- note has the motif of Rani ki Bav (Queen’s Stepwell), Patan, Gujarat– on the new lavender note. It was constructed in the 11th century by Rani Udayamati in the memory of her husband, Bhima I of Chaulukya Dynesty and now declared a world Heritage site by UNESCO in 2014.
Rs 200/- note depicts the cultural heritage of India with the enprint of Buddhist Munuments at Sanchi, M.P. notifies as world heritage site by UNESCO in the year 1989. Its light yellow background catches your gaze automatically. Sanchi Stupa is one of the oldest stone structure of India. Originally commissioned by Emperor Ashoka in the 3rd century BC.
Rs 500/- note has a picture of The Red Fort, Delhi, from where the PM of India Address the People of India on the Independence day. The Red Fort complex was declared as the world Heritage site 2007 by UNESCO. Mughal Empror Shah Jahan laid its foundation stone in 1618 when he decided to shift his capital to Delhi from Agra after ruling from there for 11 years.
Rs 2000/- note, the largest amount currency note ever in India, said to be cause of easy black money collection, has the picture of the largest Scientific achievement of India/ ISRO, the Mangalyan, the Mars orbiter Mission. Under shadow of this picture many media channels run fake news to show that it had got a chip which will inform the banks or Government agencies about the over limit collection of these nots, but that was not true, also the Government spelled it to be death of Black Money but that is also not seems to be the case.
