Soul searched through art

I haven’t been actively blogging much recently as things have picked WAY much with work. On my recent trip to Singapore however, I visited two South-Indian mandirs aka temples, which I’ve never been to before. I can’t explain much of the stories or history behind the beautiful art or carvings that are there as I don’t know the history of them myself, but the view, beauty, and simple faith people believe in their god will take your breath away. It doesn’t matter if you believe it’s right or wrong – religion is altogether another topic. But the beauty and peace that surrounds this place through its art, architecture, its interior and stories is truly something to behold.

  1. I’ve always felt that the Indian architecture, especially in temples is very interesting and the history behind these symbolic statues and interior is most intriguing.
