On a highway away from the main cities is a Hindu temple with a peculiarity that makes it stand apart from the millions of other Hindu temples in India. This temple attracts \u201cBells\u201d as offerings for the Gods. And as a result is filled with bells.\n\nThis temple is neither famous nor large nor old and so it was not pointed out to me on a road trip to Arunachal Pradesh via Assam a few years ago. Just looking out of the car window this strange sight caught my eye and I asked the driver to stop. Had I been looking in the other direction I would have missed this unique temple altogether.\nBanyan trees are worshiped in India and have festivals dedicated to them. This temple stands around an old Banyan tree.\n\n \u00a0\u00a0\u00a0 \n\nAnd the excess bells collected over the months:\n\n\n\n\nPics from 2011\njm\nSep 2014\nBy Jaina Mishra\nBy wovensouls\nThe post The Bell Temple of Assam appeared first on The Art Blog by WOVENSOULS.COM.
