In Manali, one can see this beautiful temple set amidst beautiful forest, with cedar trees not just in the background, but all around it. Temples in India are mostly brick and mortar, with impressive architecture, but this impresses primarily because of its simplicity.
Hidimbi Devi Temple, also known variously as the Hadimba Temple,is located in Manāli,a hill station in the State of Himāchal Pradesh in north India.It is an ancient cave temple dedicated to Hidimbi Devi, sister of Hidimba,who was a character in the Indian epic, Mahābhārata.The temple is surrounded by a cedar forest at the foot of the Himālayas. The sanctuary is built over a huge rock jutting out of the ground, which was worshiped as an image of the deity. The structure was built in 1553. [wikipedia]

Indeed a very simple temple against the very nice temples in your country.
But it's not the quality of the temple but the religion that the people can follow.
Excellent daily life picture with the people in foreground.
A nice composition also a lovely presentation.
Very well done, TFS.

Une image qui a toute sa place sur le site de TE. L'intérêt du sujet d'abord et de la note d'accompagnement d'autre part.
Une image de 2011 qui n'a rien perdu de son intérêt.

Nice view of the pagoda style Hadimba temple set among sylvan surroundings. This is one part of Manali where the natural beauty has not been spoiled by urbanisation. Good choice of upward pointing POV to accentuate the height of the temple. Good one, thanks for sharing.
