The Vedas are the eternal truths revealed by God to the great ancient Rishis of India. When it is applied to scripture, it signifies a book of knowledge……
For many years i have been believing in god religiously though i do not know how spiritual i was. As a photography enthusiast i slowly started studying light and started realizing the importance of it and believing light is god which was proved during my visit to this temple. Once i entered the kambattadi mandapam in front of the Sundareshwarar shrine, i saw the play of light. The hall is famous for the sculptures and beautifully carved pillars. Though my mind raced to click pictures, i sank admiring the place and it became a lasting impression.
Ok. Here is my photoblog on Meenakshi Amman temple – Part 2 . See PART 1 HERE.
While sorting out the postable pictures, i did not understand where certain pictures were taken though i remember the directions. So i browsed through the temple map (Available here) and found out that i was roaming and clicking for 3 hours near the corridors of the Sundareshwarar shrine itself.
- Many many visits are needed if you want to photograph permissible part of the temple campus.
- If you are a light fanatic, you will stay near the Kambattadi mandapam forever. Move on as there are so many halls to explore.
