Meenakshi Temple, Madurai, South India.
The carving on the stone pillar tells the real tale of a boy who was born in the 16th century and raised in the temple by Meenakshi, the temple goddess.
Wow, that's cool. I hope you're having a great week! :)
I just love anything historic -- love this picture and the story behind it, too, Suma!
I think you will want to put a twitter button to your blog. Just bookmarked this url, but I had to complete this manually. Just my $.02 :)
So beautiful. I visited the Meenakshi Mandir just one and half years ago and I've never forget the amazing darshan I had.Jai
