Photo no 34 is not showing Jonas. A couple of my photos:


I almost bought this Ganesha statue but I thought £40 ($80 US) was a bit much. I will be in India later this year and I'll buy one there:




The golden stone temple is the under-construction Shri Sanatan temple in Alperton:




The larger white temple is the Shri Swaminarayan temple in Neasdon (near Wembley).

If someone would have shown me this before, I would have never imagine it could be in London


It's amazing that I never knew of this area before...

That temple is amazing. I wonder just how long it took to craft all the intricate figures and shapes of the exterior?
