5th June 2012 - Balance
Given the Western/Christian flavour of my blog yesterday, I thought it only fair to balance it with a more local/Hindu flavour today. This is a view of Kapaleeswarar Temple, basking in the late afternoon Chennai sun. Whilst I could not understand any of the imagery or symbolism, it was nevertheless an impressive place. The worshippers appeared no less devout than those encountered yesterday and were just as tolerant of such an obvious non-believer in their midst.
Definitely a place to return to if possible; next time with a patient guide to explain some of the meaning of the place.
