Like in all Hindu temples, in the centre of it is the room in which stands the main deity, the entrance here is allowed only to the priests

♫♫ Daily prayers – Hindu ♫♫

About 100 m from the previous temple is another one dedicated to a different Hindu God Ganesha – God of wisdom and prosperity. This is a beautiful and bright Church with a low tower, decorated with statues and bas-reliefs. Inside Sri Sitevintage has a Central sanctuary with a statue of Ganesha and crowned by a tower. Around the perimeter of the temple there are several separate pedestals with statues of different deities.

If only the history of religion was so colourful and happy! Mxx

Indeed my friend, indeed. Further on I will speak about something that happened here linked to religion, and that affected us in some way.

The colors and details are great. But that style always looks a bit like a cartoon to me. Well done

Indeed it looks. It's so different from our grey Christianity background.

Such a striking and beautiful temple . It has always amazed me how detailed they are . There is a Hindu temple near (45-50 miles) from where I live . It is a place I would like to visit one day and learn more about .

I love to see how different cultures have different religions but whose goal is ultimately the same. After all, we are all human beings.

That is very true . I look at some of the old temples and buildings that are made pre 1800s and I wonder how because there is detail and construction that we might be able to do today but I would doubt that it would last that long .  
One trip that I made as a young adult (14 or 15 ) was to Mexico and I think it is a result of that trip that I fell in love with different cultures and food. Growing up in South Florida with so many cultures around me helped with that too .

People that travel and try to understand other cultures are much more tolerant. The governments should spend money to send students abroad instead of spending millions of dollars building walls.

I would agree with that grinning

Very nice close ups. Yellow seems to be the primary color so far.

Thanks Camellia. These are more documentary than artistic photos, of course. They use all kind of colors as you will see further on.
