The Bamboo Temple

Still on the way home from Kunduli market, we stopped at a rather interesting temple - it is a bamboo grove that doubles up as a temple to Durga. There is no idol, as in conventional temples, the bamboo trees serve as a representation of Durga. Here is the entrance to the grove: it is the only bit of masonry in the temple.

we enter the grove...
Devotees tie red crepe and bells to the bamboo bushes, giving the place a festive appearance.
