Hanuman Ji Face to face with Ravana !!

When Ravana refuses to offer a seat, Hanuman Ji coils his tail to make an elevated seat & sits at a higher position than Ravana.

Amazing Artistic depiction at Chintala Venkataramana Swamy Temple, Tadipatri. Early 16th Century.
Sri Chintala Venkataramana Temple is at Tadipatri, a town in Anantapur District of Andhra Pradesh.
The Temple is dedicated to the Bhagwan Venkateswara, a form of Vishnu Ji, who is referred to as Chintala Venkataramana.

Friends, Plz note.😌🙏

This incident has perhaps no mention in the “Ramcharitmanas” by Saint Tulsidas.
According to the ancient Tamil Ramayana Literature it is Hanuman Ji.

Jai Shree Ram🙏🚩

Bharatiya Technology & Science, no one deny we were top✌️

An Everlasting shadow on Shiva Lingam in the main temple throughout the day at Chaya someswara swamy temple, Pangal, Nalgonda.
The Chaya looks like a shadow of one of the pillars carved in front of the sacred chamber.
1/3
But it is not actually the shadow of any pillar. The dark area is formed by the reflection of light through multiple pillars placed in front of garbhagriha & the shadow is a consolidated shadow of those four pillars.
2/3

@LostTemple7
The pillars in the temple are strategically placed so that the light falls at the same place throughout the day.

This Marvel Built between d 11th-12th century, engineered by the Kunduru Cholas, testifies d fantastic creative thinking & scientific knowledge of its architects😌🙏
