This square stepped shringi thirtha pond is located in one of the small, not so very famous temples, near Nandhi hills, Bangalore – Bhoganandishwara Temple. It was a hot afternoon, still sitting in the shade under the mandap, along this pond was so pleasant and breezy (though the steps were scorching hot). The 10mm came in handy to capture the complete pond in this perspective. This place also boasts shrines with fine sikharas, built out of stone. Check this out for one of the most ornate temple walls that can be found in the south Indian temples. Do make it a point to visit this place if you already have (or not) Nandhi Hills in the itinerary.

The magnificent shore temple of Mahabalipuram has an amazing architecture and leads itself for an stupendous silhouette during the early morning sun’s light. The journey from Chennai to Mahabalipuram in the morning is by itself an unmatched experience. The road moves along the beach, never leaving it for more than couple hundred meters. But u would need to have these two (the sunrise and the drive) separate. If ur planning for the sun rise, better leave real early and drive up in the dark. This was shot around 5:00 AM on a beautiful morning, just before the sun came up. Though am not much of a morning person, it did pay, to be up early and drive all the way from chennai :)
