It is novel, because this kind of traditional architecture is undergoing a kind of rebirth in the last couple of decades. It had virtually disappeared in large parts of the country.

the indian temples are modern day wonders! they inspire a feeling of devotion! their architecture, though based on a common theme, is unique. i am really amazed by the beauty of Swaminarayan temple, NEW DELHI

What kind of rituals are performed inside Hindu temples? Is there anything like a mass or sermon?

Spectacularly detailed from exterior! however, I am curious to see how the interior looks. How do the super tall domes look from the inside? Any interior photos?

i have recently been to sawariya sethji's temple andits amazing. though i couldnot takeany snaps there. the village here is really small and quite clean in comparison to other holy towns and one feels that immense sense of kinship or belonging here in the temple!
