Thank you very much.

A Hindu place of worship in Shringeri – in southern part of India.Constructed in 18th centuary.
It still remains intact , despite poor maintenence !

Is this the Godess Saraswati Uthamz? It looks like…

I am not sure , Guy.
It is in fact not the idols that are worshipped inside the temple.
It is part of decorations outside the temple ,
on one side of the wall ( There are four walls an four sides ! )
I just framed one small part of one wall !
You can’t count the numbers of the sculptures .
All created by hands , individually. In 18th century !!
Amazing , isn’t it !
Thank you .

so beautiful…can’t imagine having the luxury to be able to visit such a place!

There are thousands of temples with great art in India , Heather.
Sadly , most of them are not maintained properly .
Awesome pieces of art and beauty are there , just neglected by the authorities.
Not many seem to know their true value.
I feel sad and frustrated when I see them so.
Thank you , Heather.

Indeed timeless and incredibly beautiful.

Thank you , Mohan.
It is the temple at Shringeri .

That’s a lovely photo of what I imagine is a lovely temple. I just hope that there isn’t too much of a sad story behind it’s constuction.
January 16, 2013 at 2:39 am
You are right , Sid. It is a lovely temple.
It was built in 18th century .
I do not know much about the history of this temple.
But , behind all great art , as far as I know , there has been great pain.
Anywhere in the world . Any time !
That’s the truth, isn’t it ?

Good picture of a piece of art, I know because I read the comments and your answers that it was taken by a point and shoot camera but did you tried to open the black area with photoshop or any other post production software.
Thank you for sharing it.
January 16, 2013 at 7:15 pm
Thank you , Gaston.
It was shot by a point and shoot camera.
I cropped , tweaked the contrast and converted it to black and white in Photoshop.
( I know only some basic tricks in Photoshop, nothing more ! )

I once took 5000 shots of the temples of Khajurajo–film, not digital–so I know exactly what you mean, and what you felt when you shot this! Beautiful.
January 18, 2013 at 8:34 pm
5000 shots ! In film !
Awesome experience it must have been !
Khajurao is still in my wish list only !
Thank you for the nice words.

There’s nothing that is greater than the ancient rock art from the temples. Whenever I get time to travel (alone or with friends) I make it a point to twist the plan a bit to include ancient temples too, so that I can wlk amongst their giant structures and take a look at the marvelous sculptures. My friends think that I am religious because I never avoid temples..
As amazing that they might be, the photo is ‘rocking’ art. much enjoyed.
