Great Royaldevon 2019-07-07 10:45

Hello Gert,

THis is a very impressive building, in height and in decoration! And, this is only the gate tower!
You have been able to capture the entirety in one shot and we are able to observe each layer of its decoration, like working your way up a very elaborate wedding cake!
It doesn't surprise me that there are so many people eager to discover more about this temple!

The lady looks very beautiful and very elegant, full of serenity as she is lost in thought. Though the b/g is blurred, it looks as if all the people are barefooted. Is this natural or spiritual?

My warm regards,
Bev :-)

Default To Royaldevon: spiritual

Thank you Bev for your kind words.
In Hindu temples, just as in mosques, you are required to take off your shoes. The sacred areas often cover a large space surrounding what I would think of as the actual sanctuary. Probably that was the case here. In all likelihood I was also barefoot.
Kind regards,
Gert
