Awaiting a Renaissance of Wonder

Awaiting a Renaissance of Wonder
"I am awaiting
perpetually and forever
a renaissance of wonder"
(Lawrence Ferlinghetti - American poet, painter and activist, b.1919)

This is the entrance of the Gurudham Temple, an heritage masterpiece at risk in Varanasi (Benaras) built by Raja Jai Narayan Ghoshal of Kolkata (West Bengal) in 1814 CE when a strong Bengali community was flourishing in the City of Lights.

This octagonal temple with eight entrances is unique in the world.
Some people believe that this remarkable three-storey sanctuary is a tantric temple while others think that it was specially designed for achieving spiritual elevation and meditation among some important telluric currents, magnetic fields and invisible forces flowing all over the place.

Welcome inside this fascinating and unique sanctuary...
