This picture is taken at Jor bangla Temple. Jor Bangla Temple is located at Bishnupur in West Bengal. It was built by Raghunath Singha II in 1655. The temple is an exquisite specimen of Bengali architecture. The roof of the temple is made in ‘Chala’ style and there is a small tower which adds strength to the twin-sloped roofs. The walls of the temple have terracotta carvings.

The close POV is good to show us the beauty of the carvings. The diagonal from the perspective view works very well in the composition.
