Karkala Teru (Chariot festival) – 2008

Swaroopa Shenoy from bangalore, brings to us a magical photographic experience of an age old festival of GSBs – The Karkala Teru. Karkala, as most of us know, is one of our prime cultural centers. It is known for its Venkataramana Temple, fondly called as Padu-Tirupathi.

Karkala is also a home and place of origin of many luminaries in our community, including the great Renjal Gopal Shenoy-maam, one of the greatest sculptors ever born.


Here is a slideshow of the same album:
