Photographer's Note

This lion is near an entrance to the famous Gangaikondacholapuram temple. Near the lion there is a well.
A celebration had been preparing here around, as you can see the man was preparing something for next days.

I read this history about this huge lion:

"Once upon a time when Banasuran ruled this area, he was unable to reach river Ganges in order to take holy bath. He requested and prayed the goddess Ganges to appear in this well. The majestic view of the Lion entrance and the well were Ganges appeared are connected, the holy water is fetched for Abhisegam for the deities"
