Temple on Film

Pachaimalai temple

The Mahayuga Kali hilltop temple on Pachaimalai, a hillock near Tambaram Sanatorium. One has to climb 150 steps to reach this shrine.  The view is worth the effort. The temple had just received the first coat of white paint and it presented an ethereal sight against the morning sky.

Shot in Nikon D7000 Tamron lens 18-200 at 56 mm 1/320 sec f/5.0

Dhaba

Dhaba Jim Corbett – Ranikhet road

Driving around in Uttarakhand or anywhere in North India, you can be assured of tasty treat of hot parathas in the wayside eateries for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Though the taste is not uniform, you can be sure it is palatable and wholesome. Dahi and pickles are the standard accompaniments. You can get a variety of vegetable curries too.

This is a dhaba we stopped at soon after leaving the tony resorts of Jim Corbett National park for Kausani, via Ranikhet. The fact that we were hungry made us ignore the ambiance and enjoy the food.
