Jyotir Lingum Yatra

A travel log for my journey to 10 Jyotir Lingums throughout south and central India, November-December 2002 with my yoga group, Dhyanyoga Centers.

Ram Sweet Ram

All the Jyotir Lingum temples we visited were bustling with activity. Perhaps that's what makes the memory of the simpleness and sweetness of this Lord Ram temple so pleasant.

While it certainly was not deserted, this temple was much less intense than what we had gotten used to.

In this style of temple structure, the deities are viewed from a little distance. The priest presents the offerings directly.

Ram, an incarnation of Vishnu, is seen in the middle, with his brother Lakshman to the left and his wife Sita to the right.

Stalls that offer religious pictures to devotees are very popular, especially near the temples.

A typical market scene. There I am taking pictures of the motorcycles again!
