Temple Ceilings

Perhaps it is a primodial reaction to gaze upwards to the heavens when we think of the Divine. Inside Hindu temples, looking up at the ceilings overwhelms the devotee with an explosion of color and pattern, to align their consciousness with the gods.

Sometimes I want to say so much about the pictures that I get bogged down in the words, when I just should be showing you the images. This collection is from the Mennakshi Temple in Maduri. In my next posting, I will show you more of the temple, but for now, LOOK UP!
