Photographer's Note

We entered in Gujarat and soon we found this curious hindu temple in a slope, in fact it is usual to find hindu temples mixed with giant sculptures. This one is at side of Shiva, frequently shown in blue, according with tradition the devils poisoned the oceans and Shiva drank the whole poison to avoid some creature died and because this he became blue.
My driver was afraid because he never had visited this state before and the language and calligraphy were different.


Entramos no estado de Gujarat e logo nos deparamos com este templo hindu na beira da rodovia, erguido numa encostas e com uma grande estátua de Shiva ao lado, algo que é comum por lá. Shiva é frequentemente pintado em azul.
Meu motorista estava assustado pois ele jamais havia ido a este estado, onde o idioma e a escrita são diferentes da terra dele.
