Beauty in the details

There is a beautiful Hindu temple south of Sydney.  Take the road south that goes past the Helensburgh turn off and there's a tantalizing glimpse of white roof top carvings through the trees. A sign points the way to the road to the temple. It is well worth a visit and is a beautiful place full of serenity and gorgeous detail.

No footwear past this point ..

  2. The temple is really beautiful, and I love the way it contrasts with the blue sky.

  3. Those white carvings are wonderful, Val. We pass a couple of Hindu temples when we visit Dad, but they are nowhere near as lovely as this one. I like that pretty in pink pair in the first pic too.

  4. You are quite right - the beauty very often ARE in the details. This looks like a real mini-India!

  5. It is a beautiful temple. It is hard to believe it is in Helensburgh. It was all country and bush when I lived in Loftus 50 years ago.

  6. At first sight, I was in India! :o)
    ! What a wonderful architecture!
    Oh, and I like your banner very much !

    1. Thank you Malyss. The banner is from my favourite little bit of the Australian coast. There are more glamorous places, but this is where I want to retire eventually.
