||DwaparYuga || the #Mahabharat in an amazing way.
It is of the story of Jaya and Vijaya.

RT and spread the knowledge.
Jaya & Vijaya R the two gatekeepers of the abode of Vishnu. According to the #Bhagavata Purana, the 4Kumaras Sanaka, Sanandana,Sanatana,& Sanatkumara, who R manasaputras of Brahma,decide to pay a visit to #Vishnu. The Sanat Kumaras approach Jaya &Vijaya ask to be let in.
Jaya & Vijaya tell the Kumaras that Sri #Vishnu is resting & that they cannot see him now. The enraged Kumaras cursed both of them that they would have to give up their divinity, be born as mortals on Earth and live like normal human beings.

#ChennaKeshava temple, Belur is an enviable piece of temple architecture of the mighty HOYSALAS. Commisioned by Vishnuvardhan in 1117 CE built over a century. Dedicated to Vishnu, it literally means handsome or beautiful #Keshva !
Surrounded by minor shrines & temples.
#ChennaKeshava, the main temple facing the Gopuram is 178 by 158 feet on a platform or #Jagati about 3 ft high.
Gopuram is a later addition of 17 ce in its present form.
#Shalabhanjikas or Shilabalika on the eaves of the temple are an absolute marvel. These are feminine figures holding a tree branch. Literally means "breaking Saal tree branch".
38 of the 40 have survived. The details are amazing.

Beyond the Veil - The #Ayyappan Sankalpa — A Long Thread !
The #SabarimalaTemple is many centuries-old and hosts an ancient deity, Sastha — #Ayyappan the main Vigraha (idol) of the temple, the deity is worshipped in the form of a Naishtika Brahmachari
This temple is not a prayer hall but is an energy centre; the Vigraha of #Ayyappan is not the representation of a God who is omnipresent, but as a source of energy (Chaithanya) from a mystical dimension.

First pit-stop on my #ExploreUP journey, Bhitargaon in #Kanpurdehat. Amidst squalor, in a village seemingly over-run by a combo of buffaloes & pigs, stands what may be north India's oldest existing temple. This brick temple dedicated to Vishnu dates to Gupta period, 6th century.
#ExploreUP: Having read abt a Lodi-era tomb at #Kalpi, #Jalaun dist, I expected it to be in line with the octagonal Lodi-Sur era tombs elsewhere in India. It turned out to be quite different. Locals call it the Chaurasi (84) gumbad.
#ExploreUP: The tomb @ #Kalpi, was described as that of a 'Lodi Badshah'. Aware that of the three Lodi rulers, two buried in Delhi & third in #Panipat, was puzzled abt the Kalpi person. Turns out to be a brother of Ibrahim named Jalaluddin who propped himself as ruler for a while
