A visit to temple

Previously, I wrote about spending an evening in the church. This time, I got the chance to visit a temple (Shri Laxmi Narayan Temple).

Though it wasn’t the first time of visiting any temple, I got hit with the memories when I have been to the temple of a small town, earlier in my childhood. Of course, the time was different a decade ago, I still found it exciting to explore the place.

The temple was enhanced with the aura of its own.

When you visit a temple, even before the vision of ornamented place, you get to hear the jingle of bells moored at the beginning of the rooms.

In one corner of the breezy courtyard, birds descend to peck on the grains of bird-feed and chug water from the little bowls. At the end of the temple is the water bank, littered with the leftovers of everything and anything.

What is disappointing is the situation of water, filled with piles and piles of trash in the forms of plastics bags, flour bags and wrappers and boxes of used items. The current situation of water edge demonstrate, that the temple is in dire need of maintenance work. This is the high time, the government and administration should take practical initiatives for the preservation of decades-old site. The location can surely serve as one of the tourist spot after a couple of basic changes of immaculateness.

  1. Very well highlighted! Pity is that our government is not even bothered about the magnificent archeological and historical sites with in major city centers of the country, those too Islamic; how can we expect them to care for non-islamic sites in remote areas and towns. It is big time that we should care for our heritage and history. Nations who forego their history are left with nothing in future. Thank you Fatima for highlighting this very important issue!

    • exactly its really painful to see touristic sites turn into nothing. Just some basic steps might be enough to restore them.
      Thanks [may I know your name] to you too, for endorsement.
