A visit to the Mahakala Temple

Barun RoyI had the good fortune to visit Mahakala Temple situated at the Observatory Hill in Darjeeling after almost five years. The visit was made even more memorable by my mother, my girlfriend, my aunt and her children who accompanied me to the temple. A lot of pics were taken as usual but this time I became the subject of most of the pics.

I strongly recommend all visitors to Darjeeling to visit the magnificient Observatory Hill and the Mahakala Temple.

Here are some of the pics from the visit. Most of these pics are people oriented as I love to work with them as my subject.
