I love markets in general and I love markets abroad. I love the ones in India because of all the fresh fragrances of the flowers, herbs & vegetables and the incredible colours.
These garlands of flowers are handmade on the market.

Many of the flowers are used to embellish the Indian ladies and for offering in the temples.

This Hindu temple was just a few steps away from the ashram and it was a very colourful place. I was pleasantly surprised seeing people sitting down on the ground in the temple itself and chatting with each other, the temple seemed also like a meeting place: worshipping and socializing felt like a good combination.
