    I am a bit carried away by Belur and Halebid carvings. I hope you don't mind posting one too many pics::V


    Extravagant imagination, meticulous attention to detail, Beluru ChennaKeshava Temple

    Inspite of the damages, the carving can convey emotion like a photograph can!

    Varun, Padmanabha temple looks awesome with lights. I think they won't allow to take camera inside. There are lot temples in Kerala with wall paintings. Taking camera inside is the main problem to capture those beauties.

    heck, due to security reasons, they even asked the vendors near it to vacate the place , at one point of time, even asked people staying around the temple to vacate !!! earlier it was possible to at least click from outside, now they ll think we are terrorists if we try to , let alone taking cam inside.. :p !!!
    udupi temple also looks awesome during lakshadeepam.. was lucky to witness one, even though accidentally, when i went there once !!
