Incredible to see the vivacity of this old lady, in the same time something of a "conte de Grimm" character.
The irruption of her in the steps surprised me totally, and I could have missed the shot...
We are on top of a hill where 863 jain temples have been builded!

Not a cool image for feminists! As very often in india you can see how colored is the women dressing comparated to the men one.
Here is sea water,gives really a diiferent looking comparated to the Varanasi shots, according to the veru polluted Ganga water.

Bhuj have been half destroyed by the 2001 earthquake, as well as the maharajah's palaces? Actually we can come in the Durbar hall of the most recent palace, where birds and bats live.however the dusty lion keeps a part of his fascination power.
I have to say that rajahs and english have almost exterminated the lion, just for the pleasure...

Bhuj have been in the epicenter of an earthquake in 2001, and the old temple have been deeply dammaged.
It's why the rich sect Swaminarayam is building another one , all in full marble. The building you can see here is only for the offices and the saddhus rooms, all in full marble too!!!
Someones will think that all this money could have been used in a better way...
