The Snake flower or Naagadandi is one the few flowers which has always grabbed my attention. I have tried to capture different views of the same flower.

It is believed in some parts of India that Naagadandi is one such flower that brings the beauty of the Lord right before us. They say the beauty of the Lord lies within a lotus, a thousand petaled lotus. Blooming out, holding the Linga within itself, sheltered deep inside housed by the flower that seems to cover it like a serpent, a multi hooded serpent.
