Tollywood Star

Now that Hyderabad, India, is booming as a business hub (Microsoft, among other tech giants, is here), the city is looking past the stuffed suits and angling for the jet set. Its history rivals that of the more popular Jaipur, with distinct architecture from the Nizam rule and a mining heritage that gave us the Kohinoor diamond. A flurry of new openings — boutique hotels, upscale restaurants and shops catering to stars of the local Telugu film industry, known as Tollywood — is moving the metropolis into the spotlight.

Photo: Statue of Lord Shiva in Banglore by Gaurav Singh (heeru)
The Shiva Statue is 65 feet. The statue depicts Lord Shiva who is seated in Padmashan or Lotus position. This is the largest Shiva statue in India.
Shiva (pronounced /ˈʃiːvə/; Sanskrit: शिव Śiva, meaning “auspicious one” ) is a major Hindu deity, and the Destroyer or transformer among the Trimurti, the Hindu Trinity of the primary aspects of the divine.[2] In the Shaiva tradition of Hinduism, Shiva is seen as the Supreme God. In the Smarta tradition, he is regarded as one of the five primary forms of God [3] and in the Brahma Kumaris perspective, he is known as Father, or Shiva Baba (Wikipedia).
Lord Shiva represents the aspect of the Supreme Being (Brahman of the Upanishads) that continuously dissolves to recreate in the cyclic process of creation, preservation, dissolution and recreation of the universe. Lord Shiva is the Lord of mercy and compassion. He protects devotees from evil forces such as lust, greed, and anger. He grants boons, bestows grace and awakens wisdom in His devotees (www.koausa.org).

The  Jantar Mantar, Jaipur - India
The Jantar Mantar, in Jaipur, is an  astronomical observation site built in the early 18th century. It  includes a set of some 20 main fixed instruments. They are monumental  examples in masonry of known instruments but which in many cases have  specific characteristics of their own. Designed for the observation of  astronomical positions with the naked eye, they embody several  architectural and instrumental innovations. This is the most  significant, most comprehensive, and the best preserved of India’s  historic observatories. It is an expression of the astronomical skills  and cosmological concepts of the court of a scholarly prince at the end  of the Mughal period.
