Yali is a mythical creature seen in many South Indian temples, often sculpted onto the pillars. It may be portrayed as part lion, part elephant and part horse, and in similar shapes. Also, it has been sometimes described as a leogryph with some bird-like features. Descriptions of and references to Yalis are very old, but they became prominent in South Indian sculpture in the 16th century. Yalis were believed to be more powerful than the lion, the tiger or the elephant. Yalis are called protector of Temples. They protect and guard the temples and ways leading to the temples from demonic forces. . . . . . #travelpost11#lepakshidiaries#lepakshitemple#16thcentury#dravidian#architecture#templesofasia#indiantemples#omnamashivaya #pillarstory#gaurdiansofthetemple#lionlikefeatures#elephantlikestrength#nobadvibes#indianphotos#mobile__photography#architecturephotography#shoton#galaxya50

என்னுடைய வாழ்கை தான் மிக மோசமானது என நான் சிந்திக்கும்போதெல்லாம் வாழ்க்கை உண்மையான பிரச்சினையை நமக்கு காட்டுகிறது. அடுத்த தலைமுறையினர் சுவாசிக்க என்ன செய்யப்போகிறார்கள் என சிந்திக்க வைக்கிறது. அமேசான் காடு இன்னும் எரிந்துகொண்டுதான் உள்ளது. நமக்கு மூச்சுதினரல் ஏற்படும் போதுதான் இந்த பிரச்னையின் வீரியத்தை உணர முடியும். நம்மால் நம் எதிர்கால சந்ததியினருக்கு பணத்தை சேமித்திட முடியும் ஆனால் அவர்களது வாழ்க்கையை? #saveamazonia#saveamazon#savetheamazon#savetrees#savethetrees#amazon#amazonforest#periyarist#dravidian#tamil

This Nandhi (bull) in Gangaikondacholapuram is considered to be one of the biggest and tallest in India. The major speciality is that the sun rays falls on the Nandhi in the daytime and reflects directly on the Lingam inside the sanctum which is 200m (approx) away. #gangaikondacholapuram#temple#nandhi#bull#kumbakonam#brihadeeshwaratemple#lordshiva#rajendrachola#cholatemple#cholaarchitecture#dravidian#cholakingdom#rajarajachola#architecture#sculpture#indiaphotography#india#unesco #travelphotography#ar_shots#temple#history#historic#templephotography#divinity#prideoftamilnadu#southindia#tamilnadu#tamil#tamilnadutourism#templesofindia

♥️ Namaste from Murudeshwar ♥️ Gopuram | गोपूरम् Gopuram refers to the tower built at temple entrance. Gopurams originally belong to Dravidian architecture style that comes from Southern India. These Gopurams form a prominent feature of Hindu Temples of South India. It is an ornamented gateway to the main temple. This Temple architecture style is native to Southern India specifically Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka. These Gopurams feature the outer appearance of the temple. They used to be of average height till medieval era, But soon became the main attraction of the temple. People began to emphasize more on constructing huge Gopurams. These Gopurams are actually multi-storied monumental structure decorated with Hindu mythological carvings. Some depict the stories associated with the residing deity or the place where temple is located. The Murudeshwar Temple is popular among travellers for the pretty high Siva temple, which is towered over an immense 40m high idol of the deity. The Gopuram is now the second tallest (237 ft.) in India. This is also the only one where one can take a lift to top floor of the gopuram. #oyocation#tripotocommunity#tripotoxoyo #travel#backpacking#namaskar#namaste#traveller#nomads#nomadsofindia#nomadlife#karnataka#ksrtc#gokarna#murudeshwar#temple#dravidian#kannada#northkarnataka#india#solotrip#nature#hindu#shiva#omnamahshivay#entrance#structure#archeology

Brihadiswarar temple (2/4) Built out of granite, the vimana tower of Brihadiswara temple, above the sanctum is one of the tallest in South India. It was, in all likelihood, one of the tallest structures in the world at the time of its construction. The temple has a massive colonnaded prakara (corridor) and one of the largest Shiva lingas in India. It is also famed for the quality of its sculpture, as well as being the location that commissioned the brass Nataraja – Shiva as the lord of dance, in 11th century. The complex includes shrines for Nandi, Parvati, Kartikeya, Ganesha, Sabhapati, Dakshinamurti, Chandeshvara, Varahi and others. #photography#indiaclicks#indiapictures#archaeology#hindu#old#brihadeeswarartemple#cholas#nayakas#marathas#siva#dravidian#architecture#1003AD#temple#india#southindia#tamilnadu#cholaempire#ancient#heritage#history#historyofindia#tanjore#dakshinameru#unescoworldheritage#incredibleindia

#bookoftheday: MGR - A LIFE #aboutthebook: Marudur Gopalan Ramachandran or MGR-founder of the AIADMK founder and  three-time chief minister, Bharat Ratna recipient-dominated Tamil Nadu's  stratosphere for four decades.  In this richly detailed biography of the man often called vathiyar or teacher, R.  Kannan traces MGR's life from his early poverty-ridden years-a Class Three  dropout-to his rise as a matinee idol, before becoming a politician of repute. He  examines MGR's lifelong association with mentor Annadurai and other Dravidian  cultural icons and his tumultuous political friendship with Kalaignar Karunanidhi  and Jayalalithaa, his cine heroine and political protégé.  The book dissects MGR's years in power: His early administration, the  legendary midday meal scheme launched in 1982 that fed 92 lakh  schoolchildren, his well-intentioned farm subsidies and freebies that strained the  exchequer, his largesse to the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam, as well as his  unabashed sponsorship of liquor barons and private medical and engineering  colleges that aided the transformation of the state, but also fuelled corruption.  Honest and insightful, MGR provides a portrait of a warm larger-than-life figure,  whose legacy has left an indelible stamp on Dravidian politics. #genre#biography #author#rkannan #publication@penguinrandomhouse Thisbook and much more available at The Booknerds Reading Space.
