The Kapaleeshwarar temple is a Hindu temple located in Mylapore, Chennai, India. The 8th century Shiva temple was built by the Pallava dynasty.

Architecturally, the temple is of typical Dravidian style with the gopuram towering over the street on which the temple sits. There are two entrances to the temple marked by the gopuram on either side. The east gopuram is about 40m high, while the smaller western gopuram faces the sacred tank.

Lingaraj Temple, Bhuvaneshwar, Orissa
Stefan @ India@flickr


Lingaraj Temple is a temple of the Hindu god Shiva and is one of the oldest temples of the Temple City Bhubaneswar, a revered pilgrimage center and the capital of the state of Orissa.

The temple is more than 1000 years old, dating back in its present form to the last decade of the eleventh century, though there is evidence that parts of the temple have been there since sixth century AD as the temple has been emphasized in some of the seventh century Sanskrit texts.

Ki Gompa, Spiti Valley, Ladakh

Gompa and ling are ecclesiastical fortifications of learning, lineage and sadhana (that may be understood as a conflation of a fortification, a monastery or nunnery, and a university (Sanskrit: vihara), located in Tibet, Ladakh (India), Nepal, and Bhutan. Their design and interior details vary from region to region, however, all follow a general sacred geometrical mandala design of a central prayer hall containing a Buddha murti or thangka, benches for the monks or nuns to engage in prayer or meditation and attached living accommodation. The gompa or ling may also be accompanied by any number of stupas. The siting and aspect of the architectural constructions, satellite buildings and grounds were founded on ancient principles of geodesic lore and environmental metaphysics.

Kudos for the effort! Crazy. Will take years to experience all of my own country, let alone the world. Threads like these leave you with a hollow longing feeling to go soak it up.
