  • Hadimba Devi Temple ( built 1553 onward ) PAGODA SHELLI( structure name).
.
The temple was built by Maharaja Bahadur Singh in 1553, and has stood quite some tests of time. An intricate four-storey structure, it looks like a deserted cabin in the woods if there is nobody around. Look closer and you will spot its exteriors adorned with sacrificial remains of animals, including goats, buffaloes and antelopes. Animal sacrifice is still a norm at the temple, especially when a new ruler is coronated. While it does sound rudimentary, you will know that practices like this are a part of this region’s culture, which is slowly embracing change.
The three tiers of its square roofs are covered with timber tiles and the conical apex is embellished with a metal cladding. The mud walls are covered with stone work. The wooden doorway is ornamented with very elaborate carvings that depict goddesses, foliate designs, dancers, scenes from Lord Krishna’s life and Navagrahas.
Hadimba is one of the most popular deities of the region. People visit this temple not only to worship, but also to marvel at the incredibly superb kind of construction it features.The central deity Hadimba is considered the patron of the rulers and it is viewed very important to seek her blessings before their coronation.🙏

  • I have to share what I wore on May 21st.

Not a cute sundress, or sassy shorts & a tank.

But jeans. A cashmere sweater. A parka. Boots. And a pom hat. 
It’s May 21st, people!! The snow’s gone now but it still does not feel like spring.  I don’t know about you, but I’m ready for those cute sundresses! 
Are you ready for spring, or is it freezing where you live too?

  • ❄️ or 🌧?
Not the level of misery when you try to get to work in such weather.
Purely visual.
When you are in your favorite chair, sipping hot chocolate and looking through the window😌

  • I am so ready for summer! 
At the same time, I know I’ll start missing these snowy tops somewhere around mid August. 
Good reason to enjoy it now, I guess..

  • Saving snowballs and saving Mother Nature at the same time? Yes, please! AD RECOOL by @igloocoolers is the world’s first cooler made entirely from biodegradable materials. We had fun bringing it with us to keep our drinks and snacks chill on our last snowy adventures of the 
year and we’re excited to use it on our future summer adventures too. The RECOOL by Igloo is reusable and durable and it makes us feel more environmentally responsible because it’s not 
made of foam! You can get your own for under $10 at your local @REI store.
