Gopura Darshanam Kodi Punyam 2

Downloaded from FB Pages Lost Temple, etc . The architectural splendour of ancient India. Now this is history. This is pedigree. This is culture. This is civilization.

And this is what still remains after 800 years of barbaric islamic terror reign of India under the turks/moguls/persians/arabs when tens of thousand more architectural marvels were razed to dust, and after 300 years of looting and pillage under the British. Otherwise just think, what India still could be. No way can we accept or ever come to respect invaders. We live with a bruised heart. We can come to terms with reality. Forgiving may be possible, forgetting, impossible. What a glorious nation is my Bharat! Taj Mahal will always be the most despised monuments for most Hindus. To us, it will always be our Shiva temple, Tejo Mahalaya.

HINDU NATION HINDU SOUL : A PICTORIAL JOURNEY THROUGH THE WORLD OF ANCIENT HINDU TEMPLE ARCHITECTURE SPANNING MILLENNIA – A POETRY IN GRANITE

Punya bhoomi Bharath is my motherland. The southern state of Thamizh Naad is my home. This is where I grew up: amidst a surviving ancient civilization of Vedic culture and Hindu temples with a millennial past. Proud of my distinct native Thamizh Hindu culture and heritage. This page will be updated periodically. This is just a  milli-micro fraction … like some 0.000000001 or even less of what India is all about. This is pure pedigree. Rare, precious thing in the world. This is also what that has survived the mindless psychopathic destruction-devastation that saw razing of thousands and thousands more by the Mogul, Turk, Arab, Persian invaders for about eight hundred years before the British took over for another two hundred. India is the last heaven on earth of the natives.
