Temples of the Rainforest
The southwest of India has an extensive rainforest . There are some ancient temples hidden in the midst of the forest and betelnut plantations. The picture abov shows the beauttiful 800 year old Shiva temple at Amrutapua.
Much of the forest has been converted to coconut and betelnut plantations. The slender , straight trees of the betelnut stand like soldiers.
Fortunately, there are still some pockets of the thick tropical forest at some places.
