Where else but in Mumbai would you see a temple on the pavement of a busy road and the faithful lining up for prayers in the middle of screeching traffic which weaves around them as they stand oblivious to everything else !
I saw this tiny, very colourful temple as I was driving by the other day and was fascinated by the numerous statues of deities on its roof .
From a board which I read later in a photo, I found out that this temple is called the Mariamman Temple.
I spent a long time staring at the work on the roof and kept finding new things that delighted me. Like that peacock and the duck on the arch . And isn't it just such a vibrant explosion of colour?
