A man of God would never burn or harm a temple of any kind - regardless of #religion. A true man of God would see every temple or divine mansion built to glorify the Creator - as an extension of the temple closest to his home, regardless of its shape, size, or color. A man who truly recognizes and knows God can see God in all things.
Kothi Temple Kalpa, Kinnaur built in Kath-Kuni or vernacular architecture with perfectly designed intricate walls is a living example of how dedicated and talented pahadi #architects are.
This beautiful temple complex comprises small and big tower like #structures with traditional wooden work on the walls which tells the stories of ancient civilizations in this part of #Himalayan regions.
At the entrance of the temple complex a grand gate build welcomes you where you will encounter a huge wooden door layered with metal which tells you the stories of old times by the carving on it. If you look at it carefully you will find some figures which appears on the metal layer of the door are of #Hindu god's.
Similar kind of designs also appears on the big wooden blocks of this temple which covers the balcony. Each block have it's own fairy tales carved and written on it by the gentle wood workers who have dedicated their lives to keep this art alive and running for generations to come... These temples are the source of inspiration and positivity that flows in the clear streams we drink water from, pure air that we breathe in and the humanity we The Pahadi People are known for. That is why they need to be preserved.
PS: May Lord Shiva Bless Us all.
