Default Kundugol

Kundugol is a small village near Hubli in Karnataka, India. The Sambulingeshwara temple there is more than a thousand years old, and boasts of extra-ordinary art work in stone. A few photos:

Nature filling up where man forgot!


Few more are at my flickr stream: http://www.flickr.com/photos/raghu_a...7629055416153/

Would appreciate your views and comments please.
