A prelude to story on Key Monastery

Even the rocks exude beauty at eternal Spiti Valley. This was captured right before one enters ‘Key Monastery’. Key is touted as largest monastery in Spiti Valley and is located at an altitude of 4166 meters!!  The crazy wind makes your car wobble so much here. 

Now, that’s Colorful!!

India is lauded for its diversity!! Diversity that’s evident in pretty much every aspect including the deities communities pray to and the temples constructed in honor of the deities. This is a capture of entrance of a temple at Udaipur. The highly decorated patch with Om, Ganpatiji and auspicious Kalash is just the tip of the iceberg. The temple on a whole was richly decorated and colored and looked striking!!
