  7. Liked the beautiful snaps. You are also looking good in the pic Sridhran.
    I haven't seen inside of this temple. Just saw from a distance and had to retreat as it was very hot.

  12. Hi Sridharan,
    i love this Lotus Temple, so beautiful, its architecture makes me think of the Sydney Opera House. One looks like a flower, the other one like a sail.
