The architecture of temples in India evolved over a period of more than 2,000 years and there is a great variety in this architecture. Indian temples are of different shapes and sizes – rectangular, octagonal, semicircular – with different types of domes and gates. Temples in southern India have a different style than those in northern India. Although the architecture of Hindu temples is varied. This is a good opportunity to capture best out of it. All the best.

An old lady sat at the inner gate of the Srimukhalingam Temple in  Srikakulam district (Andhra Pradesh, India) resting a little before she entered the sacred inner sanctum of the temple. Built to venerate Lord Shiva, this temple is one of the trio built by King Kamarnava II of the Eastern Ganga dynasty in the 8th century and is considered a very important Hindu pilgrimage center. Her elegant dance like hand posture and youthful gaze complimented the graceful figurines adorning the wall of the ancient temple.  Yet, the signs of age creeping upon both their visage. I captured this enchanting frame hoping to immortalize the lady at the divine gate.
