Govinda Temple






There are thousands of temples in this area, literally. I am just going to focus on shooting a few. This is a beautiful temple which is over 500 years old. The temple itself used to be several stories taller, but Muslim invaders tore down the top of the building and generally desecrated the space about 300 years ago(i think). This is a similar theme to many of the old temples in the area. Anyway, its a great looking temple so i went down at dawn to shoot it.
