Palasdev temple, ujani Dam,Maharashtra
Is a temple from the yadava period dedicated to lord vishnu.
You’ll find it much in a ruined condition, the temple being submerged in the Ujani Dam waters throughout the year. It’s only when the water levels of the dam are substantially low in the summers the temple can be seen and visited.Even though much of the part in and around the temple is in a delapidated condition, the main structure is surprisingly intact.

On the banks of begur lake in bengaluru is a 1300yr old begur temple dedicated to the pancha lingas. Begur was a Jain settelement and a centre of vedic and Sanskrit studies. The dravidian style temples were built in the 8th century AD by Kulutunga Raja, of chola dynasty and further expanded by Rajasimhanandi of Tapakudu Ganga Dynasty.
The Fifth House
"The House of Floored Gardens, Palace of Rulership of Djekunti the Greater, Domicile of the Nine-Thousand Messengers of the Archer On High was so woven into legends, one more silly than the next, that eventually people stopped taking the revered Ruler seriously and took to just calling his splendid home the Fifth House." 90 Min on two days, with photobashing for the temples in front. I was inspired by one of Dorje Bellbrook's concepts for Destiny.
Year 1321, when the forces of malik kafur was on a looting spree,captured srirangam temple, local devotees were in pursuit to safeguard sri ranganatha swamy idol from being looted by forces, a dancer names vellayi did a trick to distract the general of malik kafur, danced before his drunk forces, and took his general atop the tower pushed him down and jumped herself down to death,ensuring the idol is moved to safety!Ever since, the tower is called Vellayi tower, to mark her sacrifice.

Near every village of Maharashtra, there are old temples, sculptures, heroe stones and countless archaeological sites that are waiting for us ... Such buildings are still around us, but they are often overlooked as we indulge in daily life.
The temple of the Goddess, located at Jagaji, near Ter, and the Lakshmithirtha (Barava) near it, are really large.
There is a donkey in the area, a skyline, and an old remnant of a temple that no one has time to see.
Special feature of the temple:
There are idols in every goddess cell. Some Dasvatara sculptures, Brahma, some of the 24 variants of Vishnu, Shiva, Parvati, Saraswati,
Many of the sculptures such as Ganga, Mahisasur Mardini are found in Devkosha.
The construction of this barwa dates back to the Stone Age. In the 7th century, Tagarpurvaradheeswara Mansingh generated this place.
It's the mystical animal which is believed to guard the temple. It's believed to resemble a 🐅 . But! If you closely look at it, you can observe that it's way different than the big cat it's compared to! I happened to notice the image of Yahvi in few south Indian temples I have visited.
Their temple architecture stands as a gargantuan example of their exemplary skills. The precision they have executed in their work way back even when the technology that we have now never existed, is exemplary!
"Mahabalipuram/ Mamallapuram"- It's a town built by one of the greatest Pallava emperors- Pallava Narasimha Varma. He was a wrestler himself! He had a title- "Mamalla" which translated to a wrestler and hence the name "Mammallapuram"😊
He ruled during the 7 the century AD. During his reign,he invaded the Chalukya capital- Badami (Vatapi) defeating one of the famous rulers of Chalukyas- " Pulakeshi-2" and hence assumed the title- "Vatapikonda"( the one who plundered Vatapi).
Pallavas have contributed greatly to art. They had made Kancheepuram their capital😊. The temples stand as an evidence of the glorious past.

Looking up there’s always sky
Rest your head I'll take you high
Nothing to fear but fear itself
We'll be okay just keep the faith
And we won’t fade into darkness
Who knows this song? ✨
Love the lyrics and it’s somewhat perfect for this moment in time 💫
Keep faith my loves!
India has had many many female rulers,warrior women,poet queens but Ahilyabhai holkar commands more effection and respect for her accomplishments during her 30yr long reign than any other does. She was noted for her piety,for her administrative ability,for her keen interest in all her people and for an extraordinary amount of building at holy sites all over the country.
There are many sources of knowledge when it comes to spiritual uplift or betterment of the self. These sources include books (shastras), temples (mandirs), sadhus (understand this to be those who are more elevated than us), and the Guru.
If there are so many sources to choose from, why pick the Guru. In order to understand this, one must know that the cause is greater than its effect even though it may be subtler. Imagine a seed that grows into a tree. Though the tree is greater in size, without the inherent properties within the seed, the tree would not exist. Similarly, the sadhu, the temple, and the shastras all exist due to and in the service of the Guru. For without the Guru, their existence has no purpose as their sole purpose is to serve and expound the Guru’s greatness.
The Guru can initiate many sadhus, inspire the construction of new temples, and be the subject of all shastras but none of the 3 can create a new guru.
Interestingly, this concept can also be seen in the Jain religion as well. They have 24 great teachers known as Tirthankaras (translates to Ford maker) as they were the embodiment of the ford the souls used to cross the ocean of miseries. The word tirth is also used to signify a holy place of pilgrimage. Thus, a Tirthankara is the embodiment of one who empowers the soul to overcome the ocean of miseries as well as one whose presence is capable of being a place of a place of pilgrimage.
This will be my last post of this series but many of the points I have made here will be discussed and elaborated on in later posts. Let us use this moment to reflect upon our Guru.
