Photographer's Note

Kumbakonam is a small pilgrimage in the heart of Chola country, central Tamil Nadu. The Cholas were great temple builders of their time, and their immensity of the work has survived the timeline otherwise ravaged with wresting rigors in medieval India. Some of these ancient temple deities are worshipped even today. Here is one idol at Nageshwar Temple revered by devout with turmeric powder.
