I had taken this photo sometime back when I had visited the most renowned and sacred shrine at Observatory Hill in Darjeeling, known locally as “Dara”. Here lies one temple with two religions – sounds weird but this is true. One side constitutes Hinduism with Lord Shiva as the main deity of worship and the other side is Buddhism. Two religious priests will be sitting on opposite sides facing each other – one is a Hindu pundit and the other is a Buddhist Monk or Lama. If you are to dig into the religious history of both Hinduism and Buddhism, we find it intertwined and special place of worship such as this here on top of Observatory Hill proves it.
Ah yes, its not a tea blend, but a blend of colors. Yes, I have been talking about Darjeeling Tea since I got online and people tag me as a tea guy, which I don’t deny and every time I write something friends and foes take it surely to be tea related. Anyways, apart from tea, I love photography, though an amateur photographer, I really love to angle all thats related to tea, culture and nature. For a long time I have been thinking of upgrading to a better SLR, probably Canon SLR, but am really confused – Hope to decide upon soon and bring you better photographs.
The thing I like about this photo is how the Tibetan woman offering prayer flags at “Dara” has perfectly blended with with surrounding religious colors! I like this photo a lot!
Enjoy the photo!
