THis is the Radhashyam temple in Bishnupur, West Bengal. A dedicatory inscription on the frontal facade suggests that this temple was built in 1758 AD by Malla Ruler Chaitanya Singha. Square on plane, this ekaratna south facing laterite temple stands within a large courtyard enclosed by a high compound wall. The shikara or the ratna of this temple is dome shaped, slightly different from the other temples in Bishnupur. The outer walls are fashioned with carvings in low relief, which are decorated with fine stucco work. These decorative motif include both geometric and floral patterns, epic and puranic scenes.

The angle is very good. The tone is perfect for such an old temple. Great composition and clarity.

Nice shot here. I like the way you have filled the shot with the building. The blue brings the contrast to the subject.
Overall, good atmosphere.
