This is beautiful, sort of surreal. A favorite.

It's a temple tower on the island of Srirangapatana.

Hi Sloganmurugan, is this a BAPS temple. To me sculptures looks very similar. Best wishes, Volkan

What is BAPS?

Dear Sloganmurugan,

to BAPS see here.

See also Volkan Yuksel’s photos of their temples. (Volkan, I gave the answer as I know that you are very busy.)

Best Regards, Andreas

No. It is not a BAPS temple or a temple run by any such sect. It is the Sri ranganatha temple on the island of Srirangapatnam, near Mysore, in Karnataka.

thank you for the information. The main Swaminarayan temples are in Mumbai and Gujrat. You can locate the Mumbai one right next to the Dadar Railway station.

Hi Sloganmurugan,

FYI, found also a BAPS in Bangalore.

Take care, Andreas

Andreas and Sloganmurugan, thanks for clarifying this for me. Best wishes to both of you, Volkan
