  2. Well, it looks like it will be very beautiful. Perhaps you will show us the temple when it is completed?

    1. This is an old temple and being renovated. It is very popular and a very important landmark of Mumbai hence also high on the terrorists list due to which it always has high security. Taking photographs arouses the suspicion of the paranoid security guards :) so hopefully I do get a chance to sneak in a picture again from a moving vehicle.

  7. Love the way you have provided an alternative perspective to this temple--a temple dedicated to a God who removes obstruction obviously has not been able to remove obstructions to his own home's restoration...

  15. I like the contrast. The white building which might be a place of peace on the right and commotion on the left side of the picture. :)
