Belur Chennakeshava temple – front view

A front view of the Belur temple. I could have done a better composition had I waited for another few seconds and let the two people walking at the bottom move a bit further.

The centring is almost correct, but the horizon and the bottom may be slightly tilted. Something to correct the next time I visit this temple.

The people are useful. They give a sense of perspective.

Stone Pillar at Belur

This stone pillar has no portion of it below the ground. It just rests on it’s centre of gravity.

Can anyone throw more light on this? Why was this put up in the temple? Is it to celebrate a victory?
