This Exquisite Temple carved in Stone Rises beautifully from the banks of the River Ganges at Munshi Ghat, Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh, India.
What makes the temple Enchanting is the fact it is overrun by a singular and hitherto unknown species of Flora or what I call “Greens”.
( a photograph in an earlier blog titled BLISS IN KASHI is of this very temple)
The foreground of the “Green Temple” doubles up as a terrace overlooking numerous boats that traverse the Holy River Ganges at the Ancient city of Kashi ( now called Varanasi or Benaras).
It seems the fruits or seeds of the unknown greens make a yummy breakfast for this young Rhesus Macaque.( scientific name being Macaca mulatta )
Have a closer look as to how this Green Plant has made a home in a Temple guarded by Lions.( have a look at the picture on top to see the Lions).
The Sun bathing Plant seems well entrenched and is seemingly stretching its branches in all directions even as it casts a shadow on the temple walls.
The featured image showcases This Hardy Green Plant which has flourished on a stony surface.
Do have a sharp look at the Featured picture as you can see this unknown plant blooming as it looks over the vast Ganges River .
Kashi is truly Enchanting as Nature breathes through every crevice of this Holy & Ancient city.
