    Please tell if you ever visited Golden Temple in Amritsar, Punjab, India.

    Always wanted to visit.

    I can sit with my pastels and paint the scenery!

    CE, I have visited this lovely place, it is awe-inspiring. But so are Tirumala temple, Madurai Meenakshi temple and many others. But artistically nothing beats the crumbling Belur-Halebid temples of Karnataka. As an artist you will love them!

    It’s beautiful but do you think you can really paint there with so much noise and crowd around ? And everyone around will be trying to get a sneak peek into your work. I find old temples and their architectures fascinating , for that matter even the Taj Mahal is spectacular but good luck finding some privacy and peace of mind at these places:smiley:

    I think we can add Hampi, Ajantha, Ellora and etc too. Actually I had a dreamed of visiting all famous places in India which are well known for their sculpture and beauty...

    That is true .... even at mess hall people kept peeking over my shoulder, interrupting me ... now I hide and paint :)


    Guess I'll have to find room in a nearby tower to paint this exquisite architecture.
