Hi everyone!! I missed everyone this week. Sorry for becoming an awful blogger. I had a lousy week and I spent the whole week writing assignments and tests … aggrrrr hated to do that!
I want to share one of my best moments in my life that happened long back! I went to “GANGAIKONDA CHOLAPURAM” a temple near KUMBAKONAM in SOUTH INDIA, along with my friends. It was one of the wonderful things that happened in my life! The temple was so calm and peaceful unlike “THE BRIHADESHWARA TEMPLE” in Tanjore.It is one of the most famous temples in India. This temple is dedicated to LORD SHIVA and is built by Rajendra Cholan I during 11th century.
We were stunned looking at the architecture and the greenery. First we made our small wish to GOD and then we went all around the temple taking pictures, running around the well, playing and sitting under those huge trees! It was 6, so the climate was pretty good and we had seen the best sunset, the sun was hiding among the tall coconut trees.
We never had the heart to leave that place. We were admiring the beauty of it till the moment we left and then we started for our home!
I am sorry I couldn’t take clear pictures because it was already sunset when we reached! (you will enjoy the pictures when its enlarged.. so just click them)....
This is the entrance of the temple!
This is the NANDI- Lord Shiva’s carrier and also favorite devotee.
Lovely trees are all around the temple.
This is a guardian temple which is to the right of the main temple.. a well is also seen.
I tried to focus on the top from various angles and this is the result.
I want to Thank Star because she gave me The Lovely Blog award long ago and I was too blind at that time and I didn’t notice that!! I’m sorry Star for replying so late.. and thanks a lot for this!
Congrats winners!!Have a amazing weekend dear friends!
