Photographer's Note

Kharsali, a beautiful village is situated near Jankichatti, a place famous for its thermal springs. Surrounded by conifers and oak trees, Kharsali is an attractive meadow. This haven of the pandas (pilgrim priests) houses two temples, one is the temple of Lord Someshwar and the other is the temple of Shani Dev. The temple of Lord Someshwar is a three-storey temple made of carved stones. A unique feature of the temple of Shani Dev is its earthquake-proof architecture. It reminds one of the tower monasteries of Tibet.
There are two large pots known as Rikhola and Pikhola in the temple. They are held back by chains since there is a belief among the villagers that on a full moon night, the pots try to run towards the river.
