On our way to the Sri Durgiana (Hindu) Temple, we wandered down alleyways off the main road to find all sorts of hidden Hindu temples tucked away behind shops, houses and schools. A spritual feast of ambrosia. Lots of photography of sacred faces. In two hours I gathered enough images for at least three sacred faces exhibitions. But where to have the next one? Paris perhaps? Meanwhile Susi was busy photographing street scenes and macro details, as she does.
The Mata Temple was one of the most extraordinary new temples we have ever seen. It includes a copy of almost every major Hindu deity. This temple complex is a cross between Disneyland, the Egyptian underworld (The Duat) and the Roman Catacombs and we loved it.
Today we leave Amristar for Delhi, and hopefully our next hotel will have wifi …
The poem below was presented to me as I meditated in the vortex of The Golden Temple. Enjoy.
