Photographer's Note

This is not a picture to display photographic excellence. It is an unprepared shot by i-Phone 4S. This shot defines the unexplored and lost pockets of India Rich Heritage.

its a temple in the district Burdwan, Village Kendur of State West Bengal in Eastern India. It is atleast 150 years old, made of Teraqota. (Red Burnt Clay) It is Damodar temple of the medieval Hindu Malla Kings of nearby Mallabhum (Bankura-Bishnupur-Purulia areas)

Whats significant is that despite the Government of India's Archeological Society restoring and preserving many such structures in India, many such remains even undiscovered. This only shows the depth, vastness and richness of India's heritage besides the age of the Indus Valley Civilization.

This temple continues to be an architectural masterpiece. The walls have intricate decorative carvings depicting Gods and Goddesses and episodic details of Indian Mythology.

I will post many more pictures of this temple, and the details are just fantastic, despite the structure being severely aged and old, as is seen from the grass and shoots growing all over the walls of the temple.

Hope everyone likes this and curious for more....
