Our World- Guardians of the Ancient Temple

 The ancient temple of Keladi has a story of sacrifice behind it. When the temple was being built nine hundred years ago, Murari brothers heard  a   prophecy that a human sacrifice is needed . So they killed themselves.Every year, a celebration is held on the day of their self sacrifice in the town of Keladi.

My thanks to the team of Our World Tuesday.

The World of Tropical Flowers

 Tropical flowers are in bloom almost all through the year. I wonder at their vigour. The red Clerodendrum is a climber , and it is so invasive! But cheerful!
 Thunbergias are also in bloom through the year. This purple King's Mantle is elegant and attractive.
This hibiscus took a month's rest , and now it is back in business.
All these are from my garden.
My thanks to the team of Our World Tuesday, who are like the tropical flowers who bring cheer throughout the year!
