To be a deity and have several heads...How interesting to think of smile

Such a colourful photograph Ayush
Ayush Basu: I wonder if it a feature of Buddhist/Hindu theology. Thanks for stopping by smile

A shrine to ensure appeasement for the spirits of the housing development behind and elephant heads to rub for good luck on the way to work. A harmonious environment ;o)
yet another great view Ayus!
Fascinating shot, Ayush
A great contrast between old and new.

The surrounding tower blocks look to be quite incongous with the deity.

The colours of these shrines and temples takes the breath away, Ayush.
Did you take this photo early in the morning? It is so peaceful, with not a single person in sight. It's a beautiful scene, perfectly framed.

Amazing that this is in the middle of those tall buildings.
It looks so beautiful. Wonderful craftsmanship.
The vibrancy of these colours and the clearly loving way this place is cared for make for some delightful pictures Ayush
Wonderful vibrant tones in this beautiful image Ayush!
Quite an architectural contrast, Ayush. You've managed to make it appear two pictures.

Its a very fine multi faced/headed Buddha icon, Ayush. I believe it comes originally from Hindu iconography, but is quite popular in Thai Buddhism.

It is rendered even more powerful by its association with Erawan [The Three-headed Elephant] which is immensely strong and wise.
Your colors and composition are spot on, as usual Ayush!
