Did you know the deity was defiled when Hampi fell to Muslim invaders after the battle of Talikota in 1565 CE
Lovely photo. I am impressed at the quality given that it was taken at ISO 1600. One of the advantages of digital is the high ISO you can get 🙂
Wish U Happy Ganesh Chaturthi Rajan…God bless U!
श्री गणेशाय नमः
