    OH Krishna. It is a beautiful presentation. Those pictures are amazing, the sepia color is an excellent option and the comments made me feel like i was actually there!

    Firslty, these pictures are breathtaking, thanks.
    Secondly, it could be very usefull and resourseful if other temples(ancient) in south india are published.
    Thirdly, the spelling of Meenakshi Amman temple is wrongly spelled as Manakshi Temple, please change.

    Thank you

    Thank you Karthikeyan (and Daya d.d., Puneetha, Hema) for your kind words and corrections. To be precise, I’ve changed “Manakshi Temple” to “Meenakshi Sundareswarar Temple”. Hopefully I will eventually be able to use Sanskrit diacritical fonts on this site.
