  3. I saw this temple not more than a month ago on a trip to Worli & was asking my mom whether non-Buddhists were allowed to enter. Any idea about that? Anyway, beautiful capture.

  7. beautiful :)

    I feel that if you would have used a wider angle it would captured the temple in entirety...just my two cents :) I am no photographer.

  10. @Lazy Pineapple .. you are right but i would have been run over by traffic!! moreover it is not wider than shown in the pic, except for the compound wall.
    appreciate your suggestion. makes me feel good that my work is taken seriously.
    thank you

  11. Does the trust have any connection to Birla Temple in Delhi? Just recognized the name is all.

    You know I love B&W, and it suits this subject very well. Love the tonality and perspective.

  12. A beautiful post! Great details. I love the fact that you had to struggle to get the photo (saying that it is next to the main road) - you suffer for your art!
