Indian Temple and the colours of fall

  1. Oct 13, 2008 #1
    It was such a beautiful day here in southern Ontario Barb and I decided to take a lil drive. We took a few photos on our trip. The Credit river valley is 2 minutes from our place, so we shot the fall colours. There are some beautiful colours right outside our apt. Next we drove to the area of a new Indian temple that was completed this year. It is hand built, No nails fasteners or screws in the whole place. Several hundred stone masons frim India spent 2 years on site cutting and placing each stone. I could only shoot from the outside as cameras are not allowed on the property. Follow the link for more photos.

    Beautiful photo of the fall colors, I just love it. The building is a work of art, I wonder why no cameras are allowed?

    It is open for visitors from 9 am till 8 pm however the sign says no smoking, no cameras, no cell phones, no inappropriate dress. Any violators will be kindly escorted off the property. I was so looking foreward to getting some close ups.

    We have a temple like that here in NJ. I went inside on a festival day. What delight.

    I could probably get you guys some photos of temples/gurudwaras if you're interested. Sometimes I think Indians abroad take the whole inappropriate manner and dress thing a lot more seriously than people in India do.
