Photographer's Note

The first pix of the bustling life, constantly happening almost night and day, around the Sri Jagannath temple in Puri.

This temple is one of the highly revered religious places in India. The activity around it is happening at every moment, in a mesmerizing atmosphere, almost medieval at times.

So much the eye, and certainly the camera can't ever hope to catch it all. So, while in Puri, i went there evryday, sometimes twice a day. This is not a late shot, but the warm lights of the sweets stall across from the temple entrance, quickly took on the atmosphere of this corner, and the bustle around them, provided a lively touch of shadow theater almost. The reason why I shot from afar and framed as if it took place on a curtained stage.
