It was captured at Baranagar, Murshidabad. It is the famous Bhavanisvar temple. The pious and charitable Rani of Natore who passed here last days in this village, built this temple. This temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva and is remarkable for its height and universal style. It has and octagonal structure with a domed interior and a corridor with sloping roof. In many places it still retains the ornamentation. The terracotta art on it is stunning but due to poor maintenance it had lost some terracotta tyles and get ruined. Despite this it has a glorious look, isn't it? I like this frame captured with lower Point of view. Hope you'll also enjoy it.

Lep pogled na deo hrama i stub sa puno detalja.
Dobar snimak i tekst, lepa fotografija, svidja mi se ugao snimka koji je naglasio velicinu i lepotu stuba.
Nice view of the temple and pillar with a lot of detail.
A good photo and text, beautiful photos, I like the angle of the recording to emphasize the size and beauty of the pillars.
All the best.

this very low pov gets an unusual photo of architecture. the tilted vertical lines obtained are perhaps a little canonical but very pleasant one effect indeed. beautiful the carved surface of the stone and all the colors. a good work
have a nice day, ciao

I like many things about this photograph. The vertical perspective and the symmetry both are impressive; light and color are very beautiful. The details and textures are clear and sharp. It is a gorgeous shot with an informative note. TFS

The carvings in the stone that I saw in my short visit to India left me dazzled. I am happy to see similar intricate work produced in centuries past. the one column in the middle appears to emulate the texture and patterns in the palm tree. I love this sort of detailed photo.
