Golden Flagpole

When the morning tropical rains came, the gilders from Maryland quickly put up some plastic to cover the temple flagpole.

Their gold leaf is so delicate, even a breeze can make work difficult. So they worked all morning in this tented structure.

Then, about noon they were done. Off came the tent.

Michael Kramer then made a final examination, finally declaring the kodimaram finished. 23-karat dazzle included.

One more task.

They head to the top of the scaffolding to install the nine golden bells. Tomorrow the scaffolding will be removed and we will have our first unobstructed view.

At that moment these young visitors came along the path. Like the three dozen other guests today, they were showered with tiny fragments of real gold. Amazing!
