This Hindu Temple in Toronto probably counts as "old style"


In real life it looks like a Disney set. A true eyesore with off proportions and bad materials, built next to the highway and surrounded by warehouses.

Ugly?
Kitsch?
Incorrect proportions?

I think not!

You are evidently ignorant of Hindu architecture vernacular.

I suggest you educate yourself prior to coming in here and making such uninformed comments.
