South Indian Temples

The ancient Brihadeeshwarar temple.

Domes at the Brihadeeshwarar temple.

Beautiful horse sculpture at the Brihadeeshwarar temple.

This Nandi, the bull, was carved out of a single rock. It is 16ft by 13ft.

This was an amazing sight – dozens of people counting the money offered at the Brihadeeshwarar temple.

The central tank at the magnificent Meenakshi temple in Madurai.

Stone sculpture lit up by the early morning sun in the Meenakshi Temple.

This was the highlight for me – seeing an elephant walk into the temple! He “blessed” people by tapping his truck on their heads. Loved the experience!
