The Watchman

Not sure which deity this is. There are two of them on either side of the door. This seems to be a trait shared with Chinese Taoist temples as well; keepers and protectors of entrances are fierce, well endowed and armed to the teeth.

Brilliant colours, Ayush. I guess he needed more than one set of hands to get the job done.
Interesting and colourful. Is that a peacock bird?
a jolly watchman
Lovely colors!

Many hands make light work Ayush excellent capture.
A fine shot Ayush. I guess they make the worshippers feel a bit frightened so they dash inside to pray.
Amazingly detailed Ayush! And well captured with some very nice lighting!

Don't mess with this deity, he looks really fearsome! Beautiful framing and colors.

Well endowed? What help will that be for defending the temple wink Interesting concept to have 4 arms/hands.

That lovely blue again, Ayush. Does it have some significance?
