A Temple at Pancheshti...well maintained

Posted by
Devi (Chennai, India) on 30 May 2019 in Architecture and Portfolio.

In contrast we have another Temple at a place called Pancheshti being maintained beautifully.
We had some sweet rice ( a part of the offering ) seated here and quite some people were visiting this Temple...in a remote village !

grouser from Ludlow, United Kingdom

But somewhat newer than the other one I would guess. Nice details

@grouser: This is also a very ancient temple grouser but painted ( including the pillars ) There is one school of thought which is against painting the temples claiming the coats of paints prevent positive energy radiating from them !

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

Harry from Apex, NC, United States

lovely but it seems a bit commercial with signage, crowd fencing and utility poles poking up in the background

30 May 2019 11:57pm

@Harry: Signage is there in many temples now announcing the vows that are to be made here..Yes..commercial no doubt!!

Irene from San Francisco, United States

A fine shot of this Agatherswarar temple. Yes, Parihara sthalam means highly commercial. Well taken care of being commercial. Thank you Devi. :)
