In this slide show we bring your five unusual images from working in progress in Bangalare.
Chain in progress - There are 8 short chains carved of black stones for the Nandi Mandapam. Work has just started. It will take a couple of months to see the completed chain rings.

Iraivan Yesti - This is a model of the yesti that will welcome all devotees at the main steps of the Raja Gopuram. Since it is a very complex piece of work, we had to made a model so that the silpis can carve the same features.

Shed for Hanuman - Hanuman has been in the direct sun for the last 4 years . April to July are summer in India , we decided to make a shade for him. He is happy resting to be uplifted to Kauai soon.
