Our swimming pool is closed for maintenance since the last fifteen days and is expected to remain closed for another month or so. Some of us, the addicted ones, now infest the temple pond of Nageshi at Bandora, Ponda. I have visited Nageshi a number of times but the greenery of the rainy season, the overnight rain and the early morning fog had given a refreshing new look to the temple and its surroundings. I was tempted to take some pictures and post them here.
|The washed road to Nageshi and greenery all around.|
|Early morning fog covers the hillocks surrounding the temple. The tower seen amidst greenery is the temple of Shantadurga.|
|Abode of Nagesh Maharudra. The rainy season grass covers the courtyard, provides a wonderful contrast and adds to the beauty.|
|The inviting waters of the picturesque temple pond.|
|And if you are lucky you may even find a colourful water snake keeping you company. They are supposed to be harmless and non poisonous. (Till they bite you!) My friend Triambak was the lucky one yesterday.|
