ENCHANTINGLY DIVINE

Thousands of kilometres to the South of Kashi ( Varanasi) lies one of the most Enchanting & Pristine surroundings I have seen in recent memory.

The Nimishamba Temple near Srirangapatnam, Karnataka, India  is located on the banks of the Cauvery ( or Kaveri ) River . The importance of the temple was enhanced manifold for me personally as I broke my 9 (Nine) day Navratri fast within these Enchantingly beautiful surroundings.

These Nine Days are followed by the festival Dusshera in Northern India and Ayudha Puja ( check out a previous blog titled FLORAL EXTRAVAGANZA) in Karanataka in Southern India.

The Picture below is on the Ghats or Banks of the Cauvery River , also the connect to my ongoing posts on Kashi ( titled BLISS IN KASHI etc..) which is located thousands of kilometers away on the banks of the Ganges River.

Live Music played in the background and delicious Tamarind Rice was served to all  pilgrims who visited the much revered Temple dedicated to a Powerful Incarnation of Goddess Durga.

Goddess Durga is the consort of Lord Shiva and 9 ( Nine) manifestations or Avatars of the Goddess are worshiped for Nine Nights during the Navratras.

Mother Nature is but a manifestation of the Goddess and this location was entirely wrapped in loads of Natural beauty.

A fellow blogger asked me yesterday if I had blogged on the Navratras yesterday and shamefully  I could not recall anything. I will do so now on each manifestation of the Goddess as  I traverse this wonderous land.

This blog is thanks to her comment and the wonderous way that things connect in our lives and lead to something Glorious. I term it as ENCHANTINGLY DIVINE or the Will of God.

Am sharing the Spendid and Divine surroundings of this much Revered Temple located near Bangalore.

The Towering Trees ,  Mountains reaching to the Clouds above and the pristine blue waters of the much revered River Cauvery  speak of the Wonders of Nature in the picture above.

The Round Coracal boats and fishermen add to the beauty of  the picture.

Enchanting Forests is all about Nature and thus intrinsically linked to the Divine.

  1. For what I have seen of India so far Mukul, Karnataka is my favourite for landscape with the rich agricultural land around Mysore and along the Cauvery and Srirangapatnam is a spiritual place. Have you been further north in Karnataka? The landscape around Hampi is amazing, as are the temples that date back to the 6th Century.
