Rural Temples in Tamilnadu

My last blog was with photos of various insects, flies and animals.

This time it is about the various rural temples and below are those images.

Had always been amazed at the variety of cultures and habits that are in practice within Tamilnadu itself.

Had compiled below various images of Temples-Deities which i was fortunate enough during my various travels inside Tamilnadu.

The rural areas and it's people are really an eye opener for anybody and everybody who visits and spend time with them.

The kind of wisdom they possess is really amazing.

The surprising part of this stone is that it floats in the water inspite of the weight.
