So many from across the country. Since you say just 3, here :
1) Chidambaram Natarajar Temple
2) Kanchi Kamakshi Temple
3) Tirunelli (Wayanad) Mahavishnu Temple
The 1st two, ppl would know. The 3rd one is a small Temple inside the dense forests.I happened to randomly landup there during our holiday, just after fresh rains, the temple opened, with a beautiful recorded track of stotrams played. Amazing feeling then inbte nature & god.
Temples with large prakaras are my favourite, and temples in the western ghats that sits amidst lush green forests.

1905 Russian Document: Protocols of Learned Elders of Zion.

Let's blame the Jews. Fake document. 3rd party wrote this, but who?


Russian Jews
Khazarian Mafia

Are they the Fifth Column?

2015 Preston James…
Set aside the debate about who wrote and promoted these protocols.

The document(s) contain mind-blowing detail about NWO's agenda to enslave humanity.

NWO predates Jesus Christ.

Context of NWO meaning: Virgil's Ecologue: return of Saturn's reign.…
▬ God of Saturn (aka Greek god of Cronos, Kronos)
▬ Temple of Solomon (three Abrahamic Religions)

Take your pick — both go back to keystone:
human sacrifice for renewal.
