A mythical scene indeed!
It's sad that it was destroyed during the raids.
Nevertheless, they did a good job rebuilding it.
Good creative shot.

I like the way you managed to "frame" the view of the entrance to the shrine.
People in front gave extra scale, and there is good light and clarity on.
Mibgle well the colors of the many elements.
Fine taken picture.

This is a nce composition of the colourful and interesting temple. I like the view of the visitors seen through the round "gate" in the foreground. Unfortunately the photo is quite overexposed. I tried to adjust that in a workshop. I hope you will not mind.

Green and red seem very significant colours of this shrine full of detail highlights with timely people interaction seen from a straight on symmetrical crop. A nice piece of image although, sincerely I feel this appears to be slight over exposed which can be addressed easily I am sure. Well done.
