A view from the top.....1

Posted by
Devi (Chennai, India) on 22 June 2016 in Architecture and Portfolio.

Viewing the Stone( carved) lamp from the top step of the Temple at Chovvalur, near Guruvayur.
Beyond the lamp is the huge banyan tree and then the road outside.
Each tier has holes carved in the shape of a heart where oil is poured and wick placed for awesome sight to see this fully lit. It was raining when we went here...
