Karpaga Vinayagar Temple of Pillaiyarpatti, Thiruppatthur, Tamil Nadu

Karpaga Vinayagar Temple is dedicated to Lord Ganesha. This is one of those rare temples where the trunk of Lord Ganesha is turned to right. The temple and the deity is carved out of rock, so pradakshina (act of going around the temple isn’t possible.

The reflection of the temple and its gopuram looked majestic, but the plastic sheets scattered all around the temple tank is an eyesore.

I was reminded of our Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modi’s promise to nation on “cleaning of Ganges”. Hope the other ministers and the local officials in the parliament are listening.

  11. Beautiful Indrani ! The reflection sure is majestic and as you say the plastic such an eyesore – the bane of some many beautiful places in our country.
    The government itself can't clean everything and wont be able to keep doing it, till each and every common man feels the same.
