    Hindu temple

    by l_joo Updated Nov 25, 2004

    Before I leave the temple, I take a last snap atthe big head guard to show to VT. From this picture, I noticed the hand is holding some mace-like thing downwards and I noticed also the mouth has teeth coming out, quite like dracula but of course this is a Hindu godliness figure nothing to do with that.

    A same shot but from the other side, this picture has some devotees standing there very sincerely looking at a person at left, I wasn't sure what they did there, so I have nothing to tell you because I'm not a Hindu.

    Hindu temple

    by l_joo Updated Nov 25, 2004

    I zoomed at the big nose elephant look-alike statue to have a look at how the artist built it. The statue is a human body but elephant nose mix Godlike figure, a figure from the ancient religion of Hindu I guess. There's a devotee in full concentration sitting cross-legged with something on his hand, I guess he must be praying.

    Hindu temple

    Now my focus point goes direct onto the statue of Gods in the middle, do you know which one I meant, the one with female look-alike body of light green breasts. I also look at the smaller red God in the middle next to the golden pillar. There's a monk doing his work at the left and devotees in mind praying.

    Hindu temple

    I did not spend too much time in the temple, this shot is taken from the take off shoes spot using zoom. What I saw was a piece of skillful artistic work that needed so much time of hard work. There's a golden thing in the middle looked like a pillar, I guess that was for praying, just my guess, so please correct me if you know better.

    Hindu temple

    by l_joo Updated Nov 25, 2004

    The front shot of the temple has so many carvings and drawings of Gods and Gods' somebody accompanying together. From the visual aesthetical point of view, I believe this is a good piece of work of art. I like the way they paint the temple, the color combination was better than many old temples I saw before.

    I do a zoom in of the picture to show you how the big guard look. You can see the statue has big head with big mustache, curly hairstyle and big earrings of gold. Necklace is golden too and the mouth is open, probably some specific reason. One of the hand up also for certain purpose.

    Hindu temple

    by l_joo Updated Nov 25, 2004

    This series of photo was taken after dark, it was a little dark but I think I like to see the lights with it. The front side of the temple has two big sized human-alike guards in each side of it and to enter the temple, I saw devotees take off their shoes and left it there beside the big guard.

    Hindu temple

    by l_joo Updated Nov 25, 2004

    A Hindu temple with the Megamall. When the developer construct the Mid Valley Megamall, already an Indian temple was there, the construction go on but remain the temple as where it was. I saw they renew many parts of this temple, so I guess renew is probably the word to use.

    The floor of the temple is always so shiny reflexible, probably there's somebody mob it many times a day to have to glow like this. The floor is so shine and devotees can sit anywhere as in photo.
