Temples and their near permanent residents

Posted on

I visited a temple recently and as always was awestruck by the gopuram (tower) , the colours, the statues, the paintings and the symmetry.

The temple tower

When I focussed on this serene statue of a saint… I noticed a flurry of activity in the background (See if you can spot him here)

And close by were the residents of the Gopuram, eating, playing and feeding their little ones…

Monkey biz – one with a banana, one hanging upside down, and the other just plain bored!

As I continued to focus on them  – they started getting restless with my intrusion into their privacy… So they gnarled at me, scowled and finally moved out.

God, This girl keeps following me around – call me when she has left.. Leaving now

      Thank you – this is a relatively new construction. The older temples are even better 🙂 !

    I was saying nice post but the colours are a bit bright- was that intended?
