This is my next excursus to the past. Today I found one old interesting photo from Goa. I hope you'd like it.
Shri Mangueshi temple is located at Mangeshim in Priol, Ponda Taluka,1 kilometer from Mardol close to Nagueshi, 22 km from Panaji the capital of Goa and 26 km from Margao.
This temple is one of the largest, most enchanting, serene and most frequently visited temples in Goa.
There is a prominent Nandi Bull which is considered to be the Vahana (Vehicle) of Shiva. The temple complex consists of a spacious courtyard surrounded by the temple itself and rooms for weddings and pilgrims. The temple also has a magnificent water tank, which is believe to be the oldest part of the temple. The Sabha Griha is a spacious hall which accomodates over 500. The decor includes the chandeliers of the nineteenth century. There are photos of Lord in different styles. The devotees are said to assemble here twice a day to meditate and seek peace, solace and the blessings of the Lord. This room also facilitates instrumental equipments to listen to Hari Katha and kirthana after which the devotees have their first glimpse at the Lord. The central part of the Sabha Griha leads to the Garbha Griha which is kept clear at all times. This allows the devotee to have the darshan of the Lord even from the entrance. The image of Mangesh resides in the garbhgriha of the beautiful temple.

J'aime beaucoup le format de cette image. Il est très avantageux pour le Temple et l'isole de son environnement immédiat. Dommage pour le ciel, mais l'ensemble est bien réalisé.

a really nice temple from Goa,with its architectural style to be superb.Its reddish domes and the others elements on the top make the image even more attractive as effective too.

Vraiment joli ce temple et quelle architecture! Un vrai petit château entouré d'une belle végétation. Bel éclairage malgré l'absence du soleil et excellents détails. Belle harmonie de couleurs.
Cordiales salutations du Canada sous la neige,

Goa seems to be such a colorful and interesting place. I like the architecture of this temple, and the way you used the walkway to lead our eyes to it. The setting has a tropical feeling to it. By the way, we are getting some snow today. Not as much as in Russia I'm sure, but just enough to make a mess. :-)

peccato per il cielo perchè con un bell'azzurro come sfondo sarebbe stata perfetta, ma in ogni caso il soggetto è molto bello, i colori eccellenti e la composizione ben studiata.
Ottima anche la luce che nella sua morbidezza impedisce ombre fastidiose e di ottimo livello anche la nitidezza.
Ciao e buona serata

Orange framing of the building looks very attractive. The temple fits perfectly with the nature. I like the earthly tones.

A very nice image of this cute temple in a beautiful setting. It has a quite photogenic architecture, and its little red roofs match the lines of red soil very nicely. Good use of the FG branch to frame the picture. Well done.

I liked the dominant red color even in green regions.
An authentic architectural style, nice sharp image.
A bit pity for the grey sky, still great image..
Tfs & best regards,

J'aime bien l'angle de prise de vue de ce temple qui permet d'en apprécier la profondeur. Le trottoir dirige le regard vers le bâtiment. Le nombreux toits rouges rendent le bâtiment très attrayant. Félicitations.

just now I realized you have traveled practically all over the world!
You´re taking us in a really great trip with your last photos.
I like this one!Despite cloudy sky colors are still so vivid and make the composition so lively.Also your tight,vertical frame suits the photographed subject and apeals to me much.
Have a nice day

Goa is a city I have always wanted to see, and nice to see your post from here today. This is a beautiful little building, it looks like a Russion orthodox church with an Indian slant on it. Cool that you created the image with the building so much in its sense of location, surrounded by the trees. A very pleasant setting for this great building. The path leads into the frame very nicely.
Thanks as always

What a funny temple. It looks like with miniature temples attached to it. unusual architecture, excellent presentation.
I was in a similar temple somewhere in Goa, but I do not remember the name at the moment.
Warm regrads Malgo

HI Serghei !!
tow things...... first.... the colours.... very unusual in a temple or church but to me..... they blend well. second..... the style of the temple.... to me it belongs to Europe
but so is the world today.... a bit of everything everywhere !!!!!
comments aside...... I thinks that this is a fantastic image and with excellent presentation.
Happy X`mas for your and your family

curious style of architecture, probably the Portuguese style gave an inspiration to the building be this way, despite it is very different of the colonial churches. I want to visit this place some day, my father almost was sent to there like a soldier in the 50's.
