Khachoedpaldri lake is a Holy Lake for Buddhists in West Sikkim. Khachoedpaldri is also considered as a wish fulfilling lake and has thousands of non-Buddhist believers who pray here. The real name of the lake is Sho Dzo Sho, meaning “Oh Lady, Sit Here”, but is commonly known as Khachoedpaldri lake because it sits on the lap of Khachoedpaldri, a sacred hill.

Rameshwara temple, Keladi, Karnataka
Copyright Ananth [email protected]

The interiors of the Keladi temple can surprise the visitor as it looks rather nondescript from outside. Popularly known as the Keladi Rameshwara Temple, the complex encloses a Parvati shrine, a Rameshwara shrine and a Veerabhadra shrine. The stone sculpture of Ganda Berunda on the ceiling of the Veerabhadra temple is exquisite. It is a depiction of a two-headed garuda (a mythical bird) holding lions with its beak and elephants with its claws. The yali columns which are pillars depicting horses or lions with their fore paws raised are also seen here. There is a Nandi Dwajastambha (pillar) at the entrance of the Veerabhadra temple. The tall pillar which has a Nandi on the top is said to have been erected during the reign of Rani Chennamaji.

Keladi was the capital city of the Kingdom of Keladi, a feudatory of Vijayanagara Empire. After the disintegration of Vijayanagara Empire in the Battle of Talikota, the Keladi Nayakas created an independent kingdom and it remained so until it was annexed to Mysore Kingdom by Hyder Ali.

Kambala buffalo race, Karkala, Karnataka
Copyright ஆ ன ந் த ம் / a n a n d h a [email protected]

Kambala or Kamblā (Tulu, : ಕಂಬಳ ) is a traditional buffalo race in muddy waters, held from December till March. It is the native sport of Tulu Nadu region of South India.

It has been criticised by animal lovers as inhumane and barbaric due to use of whips on participating buffaloes. As of now, more than 45 races are held annually in Coastal Karnataka. Nearly 18 kambalas are held under the banner of Kambala Samithi and the rest are held under the auspices of temples and political patronage.

^The locals grow these things. Basically masses of vegetation that serve as food for fish and also they sometimes build houses on them.

Here's more of the same. I think even the elephant is the same. Swimming is a rare talent among elephants apparently.
