Ausmita Kaviraj has written stories of different genres for this blog before. Her heart though is lost to travel and travel stories. She travels, writes travel stories and blogs about them here. It is on her insistence and enthusiasm that we are once again re-energizing the #TravelFriday section of this blog. In today’s photo blog she explores and present temples from different parts of South Asia.
In every culture, temples are not just the cornerstone of their religious belief but also a living testament of the art and sculpture of the region and age.
Some stand on the shores of enormous blue oceans.
Others harbor still green tanks inside them.
Some are housed under surreal limestone formations.
Yet others hang from the edge of surf kissed cliffs
Some have spires that pierce the sky.
And gates that kiss the heaven.
Yet others are only but a modest reminder of the omni-present being
Some remain forever decked up in festive cheer.
Others staid, but grand nevertheless
Some are a symbol of peace.
Some were for beseeching existential needs.
Yet others house mortal remains of the immortal being.
