Beautiful pictures and amazing temples. Great job Marathaman.

Have you posted a pictures of new Jain temple in Shapur (near Thane). I visited that temple 3 years ago while coming back from Shridi to Mumbai. Main temple was already done but some smaller ones around them were still u/c. I am sure by now they are all finished. These temples (main one and some smaller ones) are build in very vast area. The landscaping is beautiful. Will appreciate if you can post some pictures here. Thanks MM.

Just stunning!

A feast for the eyes.

The architecture in some temples may be similiar however you cant deny how beautiful the temples are.

The temples outside India surprised me and even one in Haweii!!

How about Sikh Temples? Any new ones being built?

^The "Mahaswamigal Manimandapam" in Orikkai, Tamil Nadu is officially opening today (28th Jan) with the "Maha kumbhabhshekam" ceremony.

Here's a video of the temple premises taken last week:

Lots of Sikh gurdwaras are being built, but they are all modern buildings with a few embellishments. I'm not aware of any new gurdwaras that are being built with traditional construction methods. If I come across one I'll post it here
