  1. Diwali is a great festival minus all the crap noise it makes.

    Seems like you live near Drive-in or Vastrapur area??

    @ Vishal yes, you are right, there was plenty until a few days back, could hardly sleep ๐Ÿ™‚

    Nai, just got the pix.Whr’s SaTaN! what’s the hist of tht ID? Write a post or ans hre?

    Sticking ur picture for ur avtar is good ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Nice time of diwali, i just got intrested in having a details about the Thaltej Temple you mentioned.

    never heard of this deity and would like to know more of it.

  3. Thaltej Tekra is a place in Ahmedabad city. There is a temple here atop a little mound which houses Vaishnodevi, Laksmi, Shiva, Vishnu et al for the localites to worship. Not a tourist location as u imagined ๐Ÿ™‚ but if u came here, do visit, the walk upto the temple is pretty considering its right in the middle of a deemed metro city ๐Ÿ™‚
    Sarahan is prettier than my rather bad pictures. M no photographer, point n click is my style.

  4. Rolling,
    thanks, actually to get it green like that i had increased saturation of colors. It was very spooky mist and hence had to do some post processing.

  5. It has two temples, one is on he top of a small hill. then thr’s the big glamorous Gurudwara onSG Highway, plus the Iscon temple a little ahead ๐Ÿ™‚
