Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.
You can feel the stars and the infinity of the sky since life, in spite of everything, is like a dream. – Vincent van Gogh
In spite of all the noise, there is a connect when you are with the nature
In spite of all the chaos, there is a tranquil when you are with the cosmos
In spite of all the chase, there is a silence when you are with the stars
Cherish it, live it, love it and don’t ever lose it !
This shot is just part of the base 2 tiers of the 9 tier Merku Gopuram (west tower) of Meenakshi Amman Temple, Madurai. The temple complex spanning 14 acers - has 4 nine-storey gopurams (outer, raja), 1 seven-storey gopuram (Chittirai), 5 five-storey gopurams, 2 three-storey, and 2 one-storey gold-gilded sanctum towers. Each one compete and excel at being more intricate and detailed as the other.
Though there are references to Meenakshi Amman temple in literature going back to 6th century, these were restored back to its pristine glory in the 16th century, when King Thirumalai Naicker came back to power in Madurai. What awe-inspiring structures, with-standing the test of time. With such intricate work, would you believe this was conceived and constructed centuries ago ?!!!
