The last blog “Atop a Hill” was an illumination of the path to an Unusual and Ancient Temple located less than an hour away from Pune , Maharasthra, India. Am sure many residents of this charming City have not seen this Marvel which lies at their doorstep wrapped in multiple Gifts from Nature.
The First Glimpse of the ramparts as one approaches the Bhuleshwar Temple ( built in I am told in 1200 AD.)
The Trident ( the Trishul) and the Auspicious “Damroo” ( a hand held drum) indicates the ruling deity of the temple is Lord Shiva.
The Ramparts are of an Ancient Fort which once protected the Temple in it’s Midst.
The Unusual and marvelous architecture of the temple is breathtaking.
I have never seen the likes of a temple even similar to the Bhuleshwar Temple in over 50 years of my existence on this Planet.
I will follow up with more pictures, in subsequent blogs. of my tryst with Nature in the precincts of this masterpiece.
When I entered the temple at 1000 hours it was pitch dark inside and I could not even see my nose, let alone my toes.
Divine Shadows were magically created from the light of the Camera.
The Trishul, the Holy symbol “Om” and the Auspicious Drum show up when all else was Invisible to the Human Eye.
I was Blessed indeed and a quiver ran down my spine in the Enchanting Bhuleshwar Temple.
All I could mutter was “Om Namah Shivaya”.
