    It is one of several fantastic places I was able to visit in India and Nepal.

    • Thank God the Muslims didn’t destroy it.

    Apparently , I am an an islamophobic , Racist dog.

    The only fucking reason they got away this is 2 of my Grandaughters are only 3 months old and I was holding, One in my lap.

    it is a muslim town now …and the main way to make money from tourists so it might be safe until an iman tells them to destroy it and they will. it is an impressive site.

    Basically, Hinduism celebrates life, while Muslim celebrates death and the afterlife. Hinduism is compassionate and tolerant, while Islam is totalitarian and intolerant. Nice photo.
