Travel Photo Gallery - Golden Temple, Namdroling Monastery, India

Golden Temple, Namdroling Monastery

Back after few weeks spent in wonderful South India, looking at photos I took I've decided to publish couple of shots from Golden Temple first. I first realized what the visit will be about when a monk insisted he would pay for rickshaw we took together to Bylakuppe - the biggest Tibetan settlements in whole India. What came after can not be described in words, especially the chanting really got me and I nearly forgotten to take photos.

Equipment: Pentax *istD, Pentax AF16-45DA/4, Sigma AF50-500mm, f4-6.3 EX
