Four Aihole-Village Women
Now from a previous post, you will know that one of my favourite small towns in India is called Badami which is in Karnataka. In fact it’s a great place from which to explore the region. About 33 km east-north-east of Badami is the village of Aihole. In and around the village are over eighty temples and it’s the perfect place for a day-trip. At the cross-roads in the village-centre is the famous Durga Temple and Museum. This is where all the coaches stop…. it used to be a quiet place a few years ago…. ah well…. it helps the local economy……. so if the place is busy …. actually it’s not too bad….. you could try walking around the village. You might be invited to join in with the kids’ cricket game.
I love this photo. Four women relaxing in the middle of the morning. The gentle, easy and contented smile of the woman on the left says it all.
