|My driver was fascinated with this place... after all it had images from the Karma Sutra; not to be missed... especially the one of the lion, the lady and the king... grin...|
Well, if you are desperate to see something from the KS, I suggest you buy the book! The images are worn and the closest they came to the driver's fantasy, was that there were 3 bumps all seemingly bumping into one another... LOL!
For me this statue, and especially the feet, spoke far more loudly. These feet have been around a long time and deserve a scattering of flowers, and a place in my photo album. Details in case you want to go hunting for feet or other fetishes?
Nalanda gedige is located in the Matale district in Sri Lanka. There is a beautiful pagoda made of stone by the ancient Sinhalese. A survey of Sri Lanka has shown that the Gedige is exactly in the middle of the island. The meaning of gedige in Sinhala is: house of the bell. Estimates of its date of construction vary from the 7th to 11th centuries AD.
Safe to say, the feet and all other bumps are really old. All I longed for was to just sit down amidst the green and stare...
