Join us on a photography day outing to Melukote on Saturday of Aug 25th, 2012. See details – photography in Melukote.
Melukote has an old-world charm, with its ancient temples, traditionally attired priests and Sanskrit Academy staff, the ageing population left behind by the younger generation that has fled to the cities, the slow pace of life and a generally relaxed atmosphere. Pilgrims and religious activities add to this charm, especially around the large Kalyani surrounded by pillared pavillions. Here is a compilation of some photographs made recently during a day-trip.
