Photographer's Note

I have captured this picture at the outer part around the Hindu temple sanctum of Kapaleeshwarar Temple. Kapaleeshwarar Temple is a Hindu temple of Lord Kapaleeshwarar (Shiva) and goddess Karpagambal (Parvati) located in Mylapore, Chennai in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu. The temple was built around the 7th century CE and is a good example of Dravidian architecture. There are two entrances to the temple marked by the gopuram on either side. The east gopuram is about 40 m high, while the smaller western gopuram faces the sacred tank. There are four daily pujas (prayer): the early morning puja, the day puja, the pradosha kaala puja, and the night puja. During the Tamil month of Panguni (Mar-Apr), the traditional brahmotsavam (annual festival) takes place when the entire neighborhood comes alive with a mela (carnival)-like atmosphere.
