A drive by shot on the way to the Railway station in the Holy City of Benares...
A roadside Temple where people whose wishes have been fulfilled have hung bells...different shapes and sizes:)
What a wonderful way of showing their devotion

@Doug: There are many temples like this which have innumerable bells !!
Excellent composition and beautiful picture with all these bells. A tradition similar to those who attach a padlock to seal their love. Great shot.
Have a good week.

@danthro: No...they don't ring that much..because they are in a bunch...Only single bells which are not heavy will make those tinkling sounds:)
A magnificent symbolism in the sound of the bells! Excellent! A hug Devi!

Hells Bells (UK saying) well isn't there a lot of bells there. I wonder which one you ring if you want some attention. A great find.

@Ainsley: Thank you Ainsley..Ring them all one by one I suppose:)))
By the way did you relish the fresh red chillies I posted the day before yesterday for you ?
If all of those are ringing at the same time, enough to rattle.
