Free community lunch being served by monks at the great dining hall of the Krishna Temple in Udupi, Karnataka. What I find interesting in India's sacred landscape is the highly regionalized patterns of worship of certain gods. Kali for example is a very Eastern Gangetic delta goddess. Ganesha is very popular in Maharashtra and the Konkan coast. Skanda is most popular in the deep south. However sometimes one particular god can be very popular far away from their native lands. Krishna is a good example. Krishna is most popular in Western India where he had his capital at Dwarka and in the Braj region where he was born and spent his childhood. However, two of India's most famous Krishna temples are in the deep south, at Udupi and Guruvayur. The Krishna Temple at Udupi daily feeds all visitors free lunch and dinner at its large community kitchen. The food is simple but this kitchen is believed to be the origin of the famous Udupi cuisine.

Ever wondered how milestones in the past looked like? Going by the standards of this one, I would say far more aesthetic than the ugly neon painted stone slabs of modern times. This superbly inscribed milestone is preserved at the Maratha Palace in Tanjore showing distances and place names inscribed in both Tamil and English.

A beautiful stucco from the gopuram (gateway) of the Brihadeswara Temple in Tanjore, depicting Lord Krishna stealing clothes from milkmaids and hiding them in a tree. The milkmaids were taking a bath in a river when Krishna stole their discarded garments from the banks. This particular incident is a very popular theme in Indian art and also passed down to generations of licentious Bollywood heroes who regularly harass women onscreen in the name of love.
Visitors looking at the coronation portrait of Queen Victoria at the magnificent Fort St.George Museum at Madras, Tamil Nadu. Madras is India's first true British city, founded and raised entirely by the East India Company on a strip of land on the Coromandel Coast purchased from the last remnants of the Vijayanagara Kings. Madras has a rich history of colonial heritage, older than the other two great colonial cities of India, Calcutta and Bombay. I have been to many museums in India, but I have not seen a better museum on India's colonial history than the museum in Fort St.George's. What is most refreshing here is the balanced portrayal of the undeniable positive legacy of British rule in India. In India, museums have far too often been a tool of patriotic jingoism, and often history is re-written from a nationalistic perspective, much like changing of place names from Madras to Chennai.
Herbst 🍂🍃🍂 In deinem Inneren kämpft Chlorophyll mit Carotinoid, doch dir, liebes Herbstlaub, ist das vollkommen egal. Du errötest vollkommen unbeschämt und kurzlebig-leuchtend, und sinkst schließlich melancholisch-schön zu Boden. © Nadine Petry 🍁 Mein heutiger Plan ist, Laub zu harken im Garten und irgendwie wird es nicht weniger 🙆
A freize of warriors riding Yalli, a mythical beast, on the exterior of the Brihadeeswara Temple at Tanjore, Tamil Nadu. Below the frieze are inscriptions in Tamil dating from time of construction of the grand temple by the Cholas exactly a millenia ago. The temple celebrated its 1000th anniversary in 2010. Tamil is the world's oldest surviving classical language having been in existence for at least the last 2200 years. It is one of the most spoken languages in India and also has status of official language in Sri Lanka and Singapore. The vast maritime empire of the Cholas contributed significantly to the spread of Tamil language throughout South East Asia.
