WPC: Local

For this week’s photography challenge, here is a night view of my city, Coimbatore, in the background, with one of the beautifully decorated mandapams (a covered structure) of a very famous local temple, which is also a tourist spot. The temple is situated in Marudhamalai, a small hilly area, and the night view is always awesome from there.

      Unfortunately I haven’t taken many photos of my city the last time I was there. Will do so when I get there again and post them 🙂

      Thank you ☺ If I am not wrong then they were recently painted. The temple looked all fresh and colourful.

    What an intriguing design. How often does it need repainting? It looks so fresh and clean.

      Thank you, Cris 🙂 The moon was the reason I wanted to capture this shot. I was glad it came out well, despite the fact it was cloudy.

    The photo is amazing! Do you maybe have any tips if travelling to Coimbatore for the first time? 🙂

      Thank you 🙂 Perur, marudhamalai, isha yoga are some temples to see. Valayar or ooty is a good hill station to visit. Baralikadu is a very hidden eco tourist spot but dry during summer. Town hall is your local shopping area, but try not to get lost in the crowd 😉

          Good luck and keep yourself hydrated. The weather there is around 40+ with some heat wave warnings.
