Just north of Mysore lies the Hoysala temple of Belur. It’s filled with intricate carvings of dancers, elephants and scenes from the epics.

At times, it’s completely peaceful. Then a group of pilgrims would arrive…

Noise! Chaos! A pandemonium descended as the Indians rushed around the grounds, taking selfies and running every which way.

Shortly thereafter, they left. The tranquillity was restored.
