The beautifully painted doorway and numerous ARCHWAYS lead to the outer courtyard of the OLD RANGJI temple at Pushkar.
People come and go through these ancient arches of time . Each archway is symbolic and you must cross each one of them to reach the Lord.
The lady in florescent Orange adorns three symbols of a married woman a Bindi ( on the forehead) , a Mangalsutra (a necklace of gold and beads) and bangles.
The final archway frames the sanctum sanctorum . You can glimpse the brass flagstaff through the doorway as musicians sing in praise of the Lord under the final arch.
A beautiful larger than life statue of Lord Vishnu inside the temple depicts him lying on a multi headed serpent afloat the Ocean of Time. ( Hinduism is steeped in symbolism)
The Old Rangji Temple in the heart of Pushkar City is an old temple dedicated to Lord Krishna the 8th reincarnation of Lord Vishnu.
Built primarily in the Deccan style of Architecture it has been influenced by Rajasthan as well.
The wall around the inner courtyard has numerous sculptures and paintings which depict ancient myths and fascinating tales from the scriptures.
Do observe the three symbols above the doorway. You will see them repeatedly at Temples devoted to Lord Vishnu.
