@Sam: Thank you Sam :) This was clicked a year ago....and it was well past 7.30 p.m. when we landed at this Temple .Like a park, the whole area as illuminated and there was a colourful fountain too. The original Temple was established by Sree NarayanaGuru of Kerala and later it was renovated and made into a grand structure and consecrated in '91.

Have a good weekend.

Yes all the details are much more well defined. They haven't been softened by the centuries.

22 Jun 2013 10:09pm

@Steve Rice: Steve..that's because the Temple came up only in 1912 and renovated in 1989...
