Picture of the moment:- Ramayana on walls of a temple in Kumbakonam:
Picture of the moment is a weekly series exhibiting pictures from around the world.
When I was backpacking to interiors of Tamil Nadu, this was one of the temples I really wanted to visit. I was told that the whole epic of Ramayana is painted on interior walls of the temple.
If only you can read Tamil….
The multi-color painting was detailed and beautiful indeed.
By the time I clicked 2-3 shots, one of the junior priests came running, asking me to stop. This was the same guy who had earlier collected a camera fee of INR 100 for using camera on premises and had guided me to different idols & pillars for better photographs.
Language barrier could not help me why he was so against it now. Oh yes, he also did not give any receipt for that camera fee pretending not to understand me !
Can you name this temple?
