The Decline Of A Civilization

The Decline Of A Civilization
“A civilization is a heritage of beliefs, customs, and knowledge slowly accumulated in the course of centuries, elements difficult at times to justify by logic, but justifying themselves as paths when they lead somewhere, since they open up for man his inner distance.”
(Antoine de Saint-Exupery - French Pilot, Writer and Author of "The Little Prince", 1900-1944)

This is the Paduka Bhavana in the Gurudham temple complex which lies in ruins near Durgakund in Varanasi (Benaras).
This picture was shot after climbing the wall which tries in vain to preserve the sanctuary as the inhabitants of the colony surrounding this masterpiece of unique architecture keep on throwing garbages without discipline and respect.

This cultural heritage is priceless so I am asking my friends and followers in the city to be aware of this problem as it is a race against time and to help the archaeological officer in charge of this complex to achieve its complete renovation and restoration...
