Old traffic meets new in Karnataka

AH FOR THE OPEN road. Pictured here first is a Bangalore street in Koramangala, showing that the going isn’t easy at 10AM in the morning.

A few minutes later, the nearside lane will resemble the farside lane. Ah what joy!

Then below this there is an old method of transportation when Shiva goes for an outing at the Agastya temple not far from Mysore.

This chariot is at the Agasthyeshvara Temple in Tirumakudlu Narasipura, where the three rivers, the Kauveri, the Kabini and the legendary Spharitika Sarovara unite.  ♥
