Someshwar Temple. Bhangarh
India

The Someshwar Mandir. In Bhangarh, is a Temple of Lord Shiva, in His, Shiv Lingam form, a phallic representation of procreation.

Right opposite the main "Shiv Linga", is the seated bull, Nandi, the mount of Lord Shiva. If one waits around the temple for a while, many "Hindus"(mostly women), "wispher" their wish-prayer, in the ears of the seated Nandi. Well it's not taken seriously or is a prescribed ritual, but a cool thing to do, like flipping a coin in some Roman Fountain.

Everyone is Allowed to enter the temple, almost all Hindu temples are open to all, except some very specific ones, like Pasphupatinath in Katmandu, Nepal. Just take off your footwear! Don't go as if u came from a beach in Goa! Plenty of sunshine all through the year to get your "Tan" ! 

The Architecture of the temple is in the "Nagara" style. (Nagar-City/town)

The city of Bhangarh was founded in the late 16centure by Raja Bhagwant Das, the younger brother of the King of Amer/Jaipur. Later Bhangarh became the capital of Raja Madho Singhji. Bhangarh is refered to as the Ghost Town, n there are various "conspiracy theories" about, why the city was abandoned.

Curiously the ruins of various buildings and palaces, look like they have been "cut with a knife/sword" almost through the middle, The clear cut is quite striking, but pretty basic to explain, that most of the buildings were built using the same style and material, n the upper parts of the walls, we're made of lighter and less durable materials!

More About Asia

Asia is the biggest continent on Earth, a darling little gem floating around in space.Hm, what is Asia? Who's in on it?China and India are safe bets for Asian nations. Korea, Japan, Thailand, you're fine.Europe? No. Europe would sort of be on the "Asian continent" if not for those pesky Ural mountains dividing things up in the middle, and then also the whole lineage of kings and wealth and nations and the EU and all that "give me my respect" stuff.Russia would probably be happiest as its own continent, so for now we'll leave it in "Eurasia" and just hope the natural gas supplies keep flowing.Pakistan and Afghanistan are dang close to Asia, but politically they show up in "Middle East" news stories an awful lot. Verdict: Eurasia.I guess we'll actually have to consider everything from Turkey on eastward to be "Eurasian", although the moniker seems overlappitory of the territory.The Asian economy is now officially raging like a wild furnace of lava that consumes everything in its path. Japan has had the largest individual economy in Asia for decades, but it is forecast that both India and China will outstrip Japan within twenty years.China is the largest holder of United States debt and is positioned to become the world's next superpower, provided that Godzilla doesn't return and decide to stomp everybody back into the Shang Dynasty.Text by Steve Smith.
