Lovely building with the beautiful statutes. I recognize the monkey god (not sure what is the actual name of the god). I remember watching the hindu film on the monkey god when I was a child (more than 40 years ago) and it was in black and white. I was so fascinated by the magic power the monkey god has.

Have a nice weekend. My weekend will be busy preparing and welcoming for the Chinese New Year on 26th January 2009. :)

That is a really cool looking building. I've never seen anything like that before. Love the engravings on the sides of it.

Interesting architecture and photo. I'd be interested to hear what it is as well.

The moon is the added touch. Curious colour to the building and the lean makes this a very interesting image,

The first words that popped into my head were from a song: "Woh Kisna Hai". Very cool shot!

It´s a beautiful building but that god that opens it´s belly and has a smaller god in the´re, is a bit confusing!

People with Cameras said...

This is wonderful! I love the architecture, very unusual from what I see around here. I like how you can see the moon in the background as well. Very nice.
