Default Sholingur

Sholingur is a small town about 100km from my place. There are two temples on hilltops. We visit the place almost every year. Some photos of the place:

The temple on the larger hill:

A zoomed view of the same temple:

The 'Dwajasthamb' or flag-post at the entrance of the temple:

A close-up of Garuda in worship:

The base of the flag-post:

Photographs are not allowed to be taken inside the shrine of the main deity. This is one of the 'Dwarabalak's or guardians at the entrance of the shrine:

To add a human element, cheerful children on way to the temple happily agreeing to pose:

Rest of the photos in the next series, probably tomorrow. Have a nice time!
