An old temple...

Nature, to me, doesn't exclude humanity..what's created by humanity, especially in the past, is very fascinating, too. While in the Melagari forests, I went to take a quick look at the old Dabbaguli temple.

Every year, the festival means huge crowds who come and litter the place indescribably...so volunteers from KANS go to clean up, and spread the message of NO LITTER...it's a pity that the same people who seem to revere God seem to have no qualms about littering all of His creation.
