Photographer's Note

Pictured above is the Bhimakali temple in the Himachali town of Sarahan around 180 kms. away from the capital city of Shimla. It is dedicated to Mother Goddess Bhimakali the presiding deity for the Bushahr rulers. Bhimakali is another manifestation of Parvati or Sati the divine consort of Lord Shiva.
Made of wood and stone the temple is a fine example of Himachali architecture. The carvings on the wood is magnificent. One strange fact is that unlike other temples in India, the deity is located on the uppermost tier of the temple. Devotees have to climb narrow wooden stairs to reach the top. Photography inside the temple is prohibited.
Thanks for having a look.
