Sacred Places

At the Belur Math Temple complex stand a number of different buildings. The one in this picture is the Vivekananda Temple. It was built on the place where Vivekananda's remains were cremated in 1902. Vivekananda was one of the chief disciples of Ramakrishna.

The architecture has many lines and angles, Charles, well worth studying...let alone the colorful saris of the women!
I like this. The people give scale to the building, and the birds at the top are the finishing touch.
