There are few places where human handiwork blends beautifully with nature. The mystical Ta Prohm temple in Cambodia is one such. Set in the midst of lush green woods, the ruins at this Buddhist temple are entwined with roots of large trees. And if you look carefully, you can find an apsara or a deity playing peek-a-boo, like this one. The scenic setting transports you to to a time when the glory of the Khmer reign must have been at its peak.

Nataraja is the form of Lord Shiva, performing the cosmic dance – Tandava. It is believed to be the dance of creation as well as destruction, and provides a rhythm to the universe.
Shiva is a complex character. His temples are mystic, and located in unusual locations – caves, hilltops or by the sea. He has a dark side – and practitioners of that side of faith are usually found in the slopes of the Himalayas – with dreadlocks and ash smeared on their bodies. The Hindu faith advocates multiple paths to enlightenment. Knowledge, action and faith are three of them. And faith in itself has a multitude of paths – some of which can be fairly inexplicable to the casual onlooker.
