Photographer's Note

Here are two more photos from my visit to the Chamundeshwari Temple on Chamundi Hill just outside Mysore in southern India in 1988.

Any of them could have been a main upload, but I picked this one because of these elegant elderly ladies. They had no doubt put on their very finest sarees for the visit to the sanctuary.

Behind them is a chariot which I supposed was pulled across the large platform outside the temple on special occasions, like a moving miniature temple.

Many years ago I posted another photo showing this chariot:

It is also seen in today's WS. Both photos were scanned from Kodachrome slides.
