It is very well looked after,Ayush.
Ayush Basu: It seemed to be receiving a steady flow of visitors, Ray.
It certainly doesn't show it's age - It's stunning! I like your low angle for the photo
Ayush Basu: The tiled floor inspired me to take this low angle, Elizabeth. Thank you.
That is beautiful intricate work. Excellent shot.
Ayush Basu: Thank you for the kind comment, Michael.

What a magnificent place. So many fabulous details. That floor, the decorations... Wonderful picture.
Ayush Basu: I loved the floor myself, Astrid, and also the gold paint on black.

It feels very spacious, with ample room for the individual shrines, Ayush
Ayush Basu: Space did not appear to be a problem here, Lisl. I will show some more shots from this place.
Very black.
Ayush Basu: I thought it worked well with the gold paint, Michael.
Built by the immigrants!!! We all need to pay attention, Ayush, don't we!
Ayush Basu: Good point raised by you, Ginnie. I agree!

How smart and clean it all looks Ayush
Ayush Basu: It was a place well looked after and well visited by devotees and tourists, Chris.
It looks very exotic and, in some respects, looks a little like a normal room, as Westrn eyes might see it.
Ayush Basu: I suppose if I look at the lower half of the image, Western eyes might find it about normal. To me, the red, black and gold of the upper half are very unique.

beautiful temple... I hope they get their prayers answered!
Ayush Basu: Yes, indeed, Elaine. And it certainly is a beautiful temple, I found myself visiting it several times.
Wonderful so full of detail
Ayush Basu: Worth spending quite a bit of time here, Martin.
Great composition with this Ayush! And the symmetry is just mind blowing... smile
Ayush Basu: Thank you for the high praise, Sudipto!

Iloike your low POV; it emphasises the floor which I find attractive.
Ayush Basu: I agree with you about the floor, Alan. I like it too.
It features gold, gold and more gold.
Ayush Basu: And it looks good with the black, don't you think, Mary?

I like the point of view of your shot of this great place.
Ayush Basu: Thank you, Louis. I found it a pleasantly quiet place even though it was visited by a healthy number of devotees and tourists.
That is beautiful Ayush, well worth you making the visit to see this.
Ayush Basu: Actually I found myself visiting this temple on several occasions, Brian.
An impressive place, Ayush.
Ayush Basu: I certainly was impressed by its tidiness and beauty, Frank.

Look at all those beautiful colours and details. So much history, too.
Ayush Basu: I found myself visiting this temple on several occasions, Emily.
Wow... it's like the Rashomon gate is inside instead of outside...
Ayush Basu: Interesting that you mention that, Larry. A bit of new insight for me.
A fine interior!
Ayush Basu: The interior is indeed very nicely maintained and I suppose it looks much better after renovation, Tom.

It is very intricate in detail.
Ayush Basu: I totally agree with you, CherryPie. I found myself visiting this temple on several occasions.
PS: could I have your portal, please? The link currently informs me that the site is expired?
Victorian floor tiles!
Ayush Basu: The floor is eye catching, right, LC?
