Baobab tree on Balachandruni Guttalu, Nalgonda

December 24, 2017
Though we left home early morning by 5-30, we reached Nalgonda around 9-30 or so. Thanks to bad navigating, we took a wrong turn and traveled through interior roads. Half way through we saw an amazing standing rock some kilometers before a town called Chandur, Unfortunately, we could not find a decent eatery and we were famished when we entered Nalgonda. So, priority was breakfast. We found a roadside eatery, it was crowded. I prefer cart food when traveling because food would be fresh and hot. After few minutes of waiting we got our plates of hot dosa, vada and idli. We were happy with the quality and quantity too.. tummy full :)

On my list of places to see were 1. Baobab tree at Shiva temple on Balachandruni hill, 2. Nalgonda fort, 3. Chaya Someshwara Devalaya at Panagal and 4. an ancient domed structure near a Christian school. Nalgonda fort hill was a long climb and it was too warm already, so it was struck off the list. We headed towards Panagal, about 4 kilometers away. Then we navigated the narrow streets of old Nalgonda and reached the southern base of the hill where the path to Durga temple and Shiva temple starts. As I looked for a spot to park, I thought of trying the dirt road which goes up the hill. So we drove out towards and around the hill and reached the hill's western slope and took the dirt track. Barely 60 meters away, the track got steeper and rough. Not willing to take any risk in this remote location, I backed off. Our destination was just a kilometer away, we could've walked. But leaving a car unguarded was not a good idea.. disappointing attempt. So we headed back to the southern slope and parked at a safe point.

The steps were rough and quite steep too. We were climbing after a long time, was breathless in few minutes. However, we climbed as always.. pause of few seconds, walk for a while, pause, walk. The path gradually flattened and lot of trees too. No other people on the hill. Durga temple came into sight but the Shiva temple was not visible. We checked Wikimapia and got the location.. about 100 meters away.

We followed  a smaller path which sloped up and lo the upper branches of the Baobab came into view. Happy we found it. There it is.. the beautiful tree from Africa living in India.

The temple gates were locked. We looked for a gap in the wall, found none. I shouted if anyone was around. A middle aged lady with matted hair emerged from the building and let us in. I knew the tree had a hollow chamber in its branch. Aren't Baobabs amazing?

Baobab branches are unique.. thick bases and slender ends. Usually this time of the year they wear a barren look.

That's the temple caretaker. She opened up the tree shrine for us.

An idol of a Swami. So an ascetic lived here earlier, I guess the Paduke (wooden slippers) belonged to the Swami. The chamber's diameter is about 6' and 10' high. At the top was a small opening, like a ventilator.

Sunlight pouring in through the ventilator seen through the false ceiling. Thanks to the screen which cuts down the heat in here.

The passage as seen from inside. Pushpa and Bhuvana could manage to get in and out easily, for me it was a bit of a struggle. The sides of the passage exposed the fibrous wood.. Baobab wood is soft, doubt if it is used to make furniture or agricultural tools.

A naturally damaged branch trying to heal.

Folds in the skin just like elephant skin. Because of this similarity, Baobabs are called as Hathiyan in Hyderbad. Baobabs bear a large podded fruit which tastes like tamarind. In North Karnataka Baobab is called Devva Hunase Mara ~ Ghost Tamarind Tree.

Pushpa and Bhuvana rested in the temple while I went around the tree and temple.

At nights, this tree will have a eerie look.

Its trunk is a tapering tower.. like Qutb Minar, isn't it?

In the background upper half of this hill which is mostly rocky and at the summit is Latif Saheb Dargah.

Time to leave, we had to reach Nagarjuan Sagar and check into the resort by 4pm. We say bye to the temple caretaker. Next to the temple path is this man made tank. Unfortunately, its wall breached and the water drained out eroding dirt in its path. I guess the same water flowed down the dirt track and rendered the path useless for cars. Had there been water, we might have seen lot of birds.

One last look at Nalgonda's Baobab. Long live the magnificent tree!

Ettipottala waterfalls

December 24, 2017
Having traveled from Hyderabad to Nalagonda to Vijayapuri North, we checked into Vijay Vihar the Telangana government resort. There was still daylight remaining so we planned for a quick visit to Ettipottala waterfalls which was about 17 kms away. The drive was interesting as the road was twisty and passed over hilly terrain. We reached our destination in 30 minutes including a stop to buy vehicle entry ticket at the check-post. The place was crowded with vehicles and people, to add to it there were lot of monkeys. We had to buy tickets again, this time for people. Few seconds walk from the counter is the valley of Ettipottala.

This spot reminds me of Gokak Falls in Karnataka which is much higher. In terms of width, Gokak falls is about 150m while Ettipottala is about 200m. It would be a grand sight here during a good rainy season.

 The main source of water is a river which is dry at this time of the year. The water seen now is from Nagarjuna Sagar right canal. Some water is let out of the canal which flows down here. This stream flows down through the valley to river Krishna. If not for this water, we would be looking at barren rocks.. which has its own beauty.

 Few close up shots of cascading water. The rocks have perfectly flat surfaces over which drops bounce and dance.

The clear waters of Krishna river breakup into a milky white fall.

Nice spot to bathe :)

The milky stream merging into the pond below.

The place has a nice ambiance provided you can ignore human noises. The rock overhang on which is a popular lookout spot.

The valley. Water flows down this valley to river Krishna which is about 4.8 kms away.

Besides the waterfalls, monkeys are an attraction here. They are neither bothersome nor friendly, its best not to pay too much attention to them. However, if you have any edible stuff, be watchful. Closed to the ticker counter was a parked car. The tailed creatures had a good time sliding down the front windshield. One was trying to pry out the antenna.. car designers should take consider such factors.

Right besides the counter is another arch which greets people to temples dedicated to Varada Raja Swami and Dattatraya Swami. We saw a group which was hauling food material, mats, blankets, pillows ..looks like they had plans of camping overnight at the temples.

It was dusk and we were tired, decided to leave the place. On the way back, we stopped for a picture of the bridge across river Krishna - the road connecting right and left banks of mighty Krishna.


Directions from Vijay Vihar to Ettipotala: turn right at Vijay Vihar entrance - go towards river Krishna - over the bridge, across the river and keep driving on the main road towards Tallapalli until you see Ettipottala check-post on your left-hand-side. From this check-post, its another 3 km drive to the waterfalls.

Chaya Someshwara Devalaya, Panagal

A short video received on Whatsapp was an introduction to this temple some time 2016. The video talks about the mysterious shadow through out the day behind the Shivalinga inside a Garbhagudi. Then it talks about how the mysterious shadow was unraveled by Mr.Manohar a lecturer of physics at Sri Venkateshwara Degree College, Suryapet. He relates the cause of this shadow to CV Raman Effect. After spending considerable time analyzing the phenomena and created a thermocol model of the temple to support his theory. The architect who designed this temple positioned the columns in such a way that sunlight entering the temple casts a shadow inside the Garbhagudi having the Shivalinga. The temple has a low surrounding wall to allow unhindered inflow of light. Due to the shadow, the deity is known as Chayla Someswara meaning Shadow Someshwara.

December 24, 2017
We reached Nalgonda around 9-45. Having taken a wrong route, our journey was slow and we were hungry. Found a roadside eatery serving hot idli and dosa, we had breakfast and decided to visit Panagal first. Panagal village is off Nalgonda bypass road, easy to locate. And the temple is a kilometer from the village amidst paddy fields.
We are entering the premises by its eastern entrance. The other entrance is on the opposite wall. While the eastern entrance has a simple mantapa, the western entrance had a two-level mantapa. It was around 10-30 when we entered the temple premises. The place was untidy, one more classic example of neglect. Have learned to pay attention to the subject ..comes by lot of practice.

This is Trikutachala meaning temple with three Garbhagudi i.e. sanctum sanctorum. Usually temples are north or east-facing but this temple is south-facing. The garbhagudi are facing east, west and south. As you see here, three temples have been merged into one.

It is said this temple was built in the XI and XII century CE by Kunduru Cholas. The temple has plain outer walls and stepped Shikhara.

The temple's rear side. Notice the lime coated wall? Our people have a mania for painting / whitewashing ancient structures not realizing they are harming the stones. However, there seems to be an attempt to clear the lime-coating. Thanks to that effort.

Coming back to the front which is lightly decorated with floral motifs. The temple's Mukhamantapa and Sabhamantapa have been merged into one and has Sukhnasi raised platforms for sitting.

The Garbhagudi are connected to the Sabhamantapa through vestibules. Each vestibule has two pairs of beautifully sculpted pillars. The Garbhagudi wall and door frame are also richly decorated. This is the west-facing Garbhagudi ..one with the shadow. Notice how pronounced the shadow is. I'm guessing its position and width remains same through out the day. The shadow is not of any single pillar but a combined shadow of the four central pillars i.e the pillars in the Sabhamantapa.

Chaya Someswara Garbhagudi as seen from the opposite vestibule. I was cribbing again, this time about these ugly metallic grills. What an eyesore. Even the opening behind the Sukhanasi has been grilled! Luckily, in spite of these extra fittings, the shadow doesn't seem to be disturbed.

The Garbhagudi interior, its floor is lower than the Sabhamntapa floor. Unlike most temples which have raised Garbhagudi, here its lowered ..part of the design to aid light & shadow effect? My guess is- the Garbhagudi level is lowered to an extent so that no light falls on it. In fact its quite dark while the walls are lit up. The shadow wall is whitewashed ..probably not the original design.

While shooting the previous picture, I saw an extra shadow. I was standing to a side, assumed it was someone else's shadow. I turned around, found Pushpa directly opposite the vestibule and asked her to move. Though she moved the shadow remained. So It was my own shadow. Amazing isn't it?

Those are the four central pillars which create one single shadow. Probably the pair of vestibule pillars also add to the shadow. The Garbhagudi seen in the background is east facing. Opposite the vestibule is a pedestal sans Nandi ..now its a pedestal to keep Vibhuti.

This is the south-facing Garbhagudi. Notice the lime coating. There was an attempt to remove the lime to free the concealed designs.

The brilliantly designed and sculpted pillars. How on Earth did the sculptors achieve that precision.

Every pillar is a complex object. I can't stop wondering how these were created.. wish I could go back in time and watch the creation.

The octagonal section of teh pillar depicts stories from Hindu legends.

Warriors on elephants and horses around a pillar.

Lord Ganapati in a niche. Looks like Ganapati during Holi.

A close look at a Shikhara ..the stepped slope and the grand crown. This Shikhara reminds me of a temple on Hemakua hill at Hampi.

As seen from northwest side. The two inner corners of the Sabhamantapa are also kept open to allow light.

Here's a picture of the temple at Hampi which is might belong to the group of Jain temples. They are similar in size and design but unique. The main difference I'm focusing is the closed corner in this temple. I did not get a chance to see the interior of this temple, next time I'll make sure of checking out this temple in detail.

A smaller temple, not sure if its incomplete or ruined. also seen is the two storey mantapa gateway.

Wish local people take responsibility of this temple. This is truly an engineering marvel and deserves care. Also, those ugly fabricated metal railings need to be removed. Perhaps they can appoint a full time care-taker here.. two things get done - a job created and a monument preserved.

ತೆಲಂಗಾಣ ಹಳ್ಳಿಗಾಡಿನ ಮುಂಜಾನೆ ನೋಟಗಳು

ನಸುಕಿನ ನಶೆ-
೨೪-೧೨-೨೦೧೭ 
ಹೈದರಾಬಾದಿನಿಂದ ನಲಗೊಂಡ ಕಡೆಗೆ ನಮ್ಮ ಪ್ರವಾಸ ಹೊರಟಿತು. ನಾವು ಮೊದಲೇ ನಿರ್ಧರಿಸಿದಂತೆ ಮೊದಲು ನಲಗೊಂಡಕ್ಕೆ ಹೋಗಿ ಅಲ್ಲಿನ ಕೋಟೆ, ಬಾಲಚಂದ್ರುನಿ ಗುಡ್ಡದಲ್ಲಿರುವ ಶಿವನ ದೇವಾಲಯ ಹಾಗೂ ದೊಡ್ಡ ಹುಣಸೆ ಮರ  ಹಾಗೂ ಪಾನಗಲ್ನಲ್ಲಿರುವ ಛಾಯಾ ಸೋಮೇಶ್ವರ ಗುಡಿ ನೋಡಿಕೊಂಡು ನಾಗಾರ್ಜುನ ಸಾಗರದತ್ತ ಸಾಗುವದು ಎಂದಿತ್ತು. ಹೈದರಾಬಾದಿನ ಔಟರ್ ರಿಂಗ್ರೋಡ್ ಹತ್ತಿದ ನಾವು ಒಂದು ಎಕ್ಸಿಟ್ ಮೊದಲೇ ತೆಗೆದುಕೊಂಡು ನಾಗಾರ್ಜುನ ಸಾಗರದ ರಸ್ತೆ ಹಿಡಿದು ಬಿಟ್ಟೆವು. ಆಮೇಲೆ ನೆನಪಾಗಿದ್ದು ನಾವು ನಲಗೊಂಡದತ್ತ ಹೋಗಲು ನಂತರದ ಎಕ್ಸಿಟ್ ತೆಗೆದುಕೊಳ್ಳಬೇಕಿತ್ತು ಎಂದು. ದಾರಿ ತಪ್ಪಿದ ಮೇಲೆ ಒಳಗಡೆಯಿಂದ ನಲಗೊಂಡಕ್ಕೆ ದಾರಿ ಹುಡುಕಿಕೊಂಡು ಹೊರಡುವದೆಂದು ಅಂದುಕೊಂಡೆವು. "ಕಭಿ-ಕಭಿ ಗಲತ್ ಟ್ರೈನ್ ಭೀ ಸಹಿ ಜಗಹ ಪಹುಂಚಾತಿ ಹೈ" ಅನ್ನೋ ತರಹ ದಾರಿ ತಪ್ಪಿದ್ದು ಒಳ್ಳೆಯದೇ ಆಯಿತು. ಮುಖ್ಯ ರಸ್ತೆಯಲ್ಲಿ ಹೋಗಿ ಬರಿ ವಾಹನಗಳನ್ನು ನೋಡುವ ನಮಗೆ ಪ್ರಕೃತಿ ಸೌಂದರ್ಯ ಸವಿಯಲು ಸಿಕ್ಕಿದ್ದೇ ಆ ಒಳರಸ್ತೆಯಲ್ಲಿ. ಆ ಮುಂಜಾನೆಯ ನಸುಕಿನಲ್ಲಿ ಸೆರೆಸಿಕ್ಕ ಕೆಲವು ಪ್ರಕೃತಿ ಸೌಂದರ್ಯಗಳನ್ನು ಇಲ್ಲಿ ಹಾಕಿದ್ದೇನೆ.

ಹೈದರಾಬಾದಿನಂತಹ ದೊಡ್ಡ ನಗರದಲ್ಲಿರುವ ನಮಗೆ ಬೆಳಿಗ್ಗೆ ಯಾವಾಗ ಆಯಿತು- ದಿನ ಯಾವಾಗ ಮುಗಿತು ಎಂದು ತಿಳಿಯುವದೇ ಕಠಿಣ, ಬೆಳಿಗಿನ ಸೂರ್ಯೋದಯ ನೋಡೋಣವೆಂದರೆ ಎಲ್ಲೆಲ್ಲೂ ತಲೆ ಎತ್ತಿ ನಿಂತ ಕಟ್ಟಡಗಳು ಅಡ್ಡಿ ಮಾಡುತ್ತವೆ, ಬೆಳಿಗಿನ ಕೋಳಿಯ ಕೂಗು ಹಾಗೂ ಸಂಜೆಯ ಪಕ್ಷಿಗಳ ಕಲರವ ಕೇಳೋಣವೆಂದರೆ ವಾಹನಗಳ ಕಿರಿಚಾಟ ಮತ್ತು ಬೀದಿ ನಾಯಿಗಳ ಜಗಳಾಟವೇ ಮುಗಿಯುವದಿಲ್ಲ. ನಾನು ಕೆಲವೇ ವರ್ಷ ಹಳ್ಳಿಯಲ್ಲಿದ್ದರೂ ಹಳ್ಳಿಯ ಜೊತೆ ಬಿಡಿಸಲಾರದ ನಂಟೊಂದನ್ನು ಕಟ್ಟಿಕೊಂಡಿದ್ದೇನೆ.
  
ನಮ್ಮ ಬದುಕಿನಲ್ಲಿ ನನಗನಿಸಿದಂತೆ ಎರಡು ಹಂತಗಳು ತುಂಬಾ ಪ್ರಾಮುಖ್ಯತೆ ವಹಿಸಿದ್ದನ್ನು ನಾನು ಗಮನಿಸಿದ್ದೀನಿ, ಒಂದು ಮುಂಜಾನೆ ಮತ್ತೊಂದು ಮುಸ್ಸಂಜೆ.. ಮುಂಜಾನೆ ಹೊಸ ದಿನ, ಹೊಸ ಉತ್ಸಾಹ, ಹೊಸ ಬಯಕೆ, ಹೊಸ ಕನಸು ಎಲ್ಲ ಹೊತ್ತು ತರುತ್ತದೆ. ಮುಸ್ಸಂಜೆ, ದಿನದ ಸಿಹಿ-ಕಹಿ ಘಟನೆಗಳಿಗೆ ವಿದಾಯ ಹಾಡುತ್ತದೆ. ಎರಡರದು ಸೌಂದರ್ಯ ಮಾತ್ರ ವರ್ಣಿಸಲಸಾಧ್ಯ.
ನಡುದಿನದಲಿ ಧಗ-ಧಗ ಉರಿಯುವ ಸೂರ್ಯ ಈ ಎರಡು ಹೊತ್ತಲ್ಲಿ ಶಾಂತನಾಗಿ ಮಂದ ಬೆಳಕು ಚಲ್ಲುತ್ತ ಆ ದಿನದ ಆರಂಭ ಹಾಗೂ ಅಂತ್ಯಕ್ಕೆಶುಭಕೋರುತ್ತಾನೆ. ಬೆಳಿಗಿನ ಹೊತ್ತು ಇಂಪಾದ ಕಲರವದೊಂದಿಗೆ ಆಹಾರ ಹುಡುಕಲು ಹೊರಟ ಪಕ್ಷಿಗಳ ಗುಂಪು ಸಂಜೆ ಅದೇ ಕಲರವದೊಂದಿಗೆ ಗೂಡಿಗೆ ಮರಳುತ್ತಿರುತ್ತವೆ. ಸೂರ್ಯನ ಏರಿಳಿತಗಳಿಗೆ ಅನುಗುಣವಾಗಿ ತಮ್ಮ ದಿಕ್ಕನ್ನು ಬದಲಾಯಿಸುವ ಆ ಸೂರ್ಯಕಾಂತಿ ಹೂ, ಬೆಳಿಗಿನ ಆ ಇಬ್ಬನಿ ಹನಿ-ಸಂಜೆಯ ಆ ತಂಪಾದ ಗಾಳಿ ಎಂತಹ ಮನುಷ್ಯನ ಹೃದಯವನ್ನು ಕೂಡ ತಣಿಸುತ್ತದೆ.
    ಎಷ್ಟೋ ಸಲ ನಾನು ಕುಡುಕರು ಹೇಳುವದನ್ನು ಕೇಳಿದೀನಿ, ಕುಡಿದಾಗ ಪ್ರಪಂಚ ತುಂಬಾ ಸುಂದರವಾಗಿ ಕಾಣಿಸ್ತದೆ ಅಂತ.... !! ದುಡ್ಡು ಕೊಟ್ಟು ಕೊಂಡ ಆ ನಶೆ ಮತ್ತೆ ಇಳಿಯೋದು ಬಲು ಸುಲಭ, ದುಡ್ಡು ಕೊಡದೆ ಪ್ರಕೃತಿ ಪ್ರತಿ ಬೆಳಿಗ್ಗೆ ನಮಗೆ ತನ್ನ ಸೌಂದರ್ಯದ ನಶೆ ಏರಿಸಿ ಪೂರ್ತಿ ದಿನವನ್ನೇ ಸುಂದರವನ್ನಾಗಿ ಮಾಡುತ್ತದೆ. ಈ ನಶೆ ಎಲ್ಲರಿಗೂ ಇಷ್ಟ ಮತ್ತು ಅವಶ್ಯಕ .... :)


ಸೂರ್ಯೋದಯದ ಕಾಲದ ಮಂಜು ಮುಸುಕಿದ ಈ ಚಿತ್ರ ನೋಡಿದರೆ ಮನಸಿಗೆ ಎಷ್ಟೋ ಖುಷಿ ಆಗುತ್ತದೆ. ನಾನು ಎಸ್.ಎಲ್.ಭೈರಪ್ಪ, ಕುವೆಂಪು, ಕೆ.ಪಿ.ಪೂರ್ಣಚಂದ್ರ ತೇಜಸ್ವಿಯವರ ಪುಸ್ತಕಗಳನ್ನು ತುಂಬಾ ಓದುತ್ತೇನೆ. ಅವರು ಬರೆದ ಪ್ರಕೃತಿ ವರ್ಣನೆ ಎಷ್ಟೊಂದು ಅಘಾದ ಸಂತೋಷವನ್ನುಂಟು ಮಾಡುತ್ತದೆ ಎಂದರೆ ಹೇಳಲಸಾಧ್ಯ!


ಮರದ ಮರೆಯಿಂದ ಇಣುಕುತ್ತಿರುವ ಈ ಸೂರ್ಯ ದಿನದ ಶುಭೋದಯದ ಕಿರಣಗಳ ಸುರಿಮಳೆ ಸುರಿಸಿದ್ದಾನೆ.


ಹಸಿರಿನಿಂದ ಕೂಡಿದ ಗದ್ದೆಯಲ್ಲಿರುವ ಈ ಗುಡಿಸಲು, ರಾತ್ರಿ ಕಳೆದ ಕ್ಷಣಗಳ ಕುರಿತು, ಬೆಳಗಿನ ಪ್ರಕೃತಿಗೆ ಹೇಳುವ ತಯಾರಿಯಲ್ಲಿದೆ. 


ಬೆಳಿಗಿನ ಬೆಳಕಿಗೆ ಇನ್ನೂ ಶುಭ್ರವರ್ಣ ತಳೆದಿರುವ ಹತ್ತಿ ಗಿಡಗಳ ಮೇಲೆ ಮೊಸರು ಚೆಲ್ಲಿದಂತೆ ಕಾಣುತ್ತಿದೆ.


ಬೆಳಿಗಿನ ನೀಲಿ ಆಕಾಶಕ್ಕೆ ಉದಯದ ಶುಭ ಕೋರಿ, ಮುತ್ತಿಡುತ್ತಿರುವ ಶಿಲೆ.

ಮನುಷ್ಯ ಎಷ್ಟೇ ಆಧುನಿಕತೆ ಬೆಳಿಸಿಕೊಂಡು ಎಷ್ಟೇ ಸುಂದರವಾದ ವಸ್ತುಗಳನ್ನು ಮಾಡಿದರೂ - ಈ ಪ್ರಕೃತಿ ಸೌಂದರ್ಯಕ್ಕೆ ಸಾಟಿಯಾಗಲಾರದು!
