Iraivan in Evening Light

Some views from around the base of Iraivan. Here are stone padmas which will go on the hand railing later on, protected by the coconut latex packing material used for shipping stones.

Unlike like the golden hues of the dawn that show up on the east side of the temple, the later afternoon light is brighter and whiter as it lights up the west side of Iraivan from the side.

Here we are looking at the back of the main sanctum through the lion pillars of the north end.

    Seeing these structures having been built with so small tools makes the heart melt as it makes us think of the Great Devotion of the Silpis, monks and everyone who contributed with Divine Love!
    Aum Kaalakaalaaya Namaha! (Praises to The One who is Infinity amongst infinite things!)
    Aum Anishvaraaya Namaha!
    Aum Namah Sivaya!(Praises to the One who knows no superior!)
