Bangalore was filled with stunning sculptures made from flowers as part of a festival.
Bangalore was filled with the colours of hundreds of flowers as the city celebrated the Poo Pallaki festival.
Beginning in the evening of Saturday April 14th, it started with people travelling to the Someshwara temple at Ulsoor.
The events ended the following day, with 80 vehicles decorated with incredible sculptures crafted from flowers being driven along the streets to the temple.
People travelled to the area to see the incredible sculptures – many of which depicted scenes form Hindu mythology – and to try the delicious street foods and special religious items being sold by vendors lining the route.
Narayana Nazre, secretary of Panduranga Swamy Temple, told The Hindu: “The pallaki festival is the best example of seeing people coming together breaking all the barriers of caste and creed.”
The festival hosted each year to commemorate the Thirukalyana, or wedding, of Lord Someshwara and the goddess Kamakshi at the temple that is dedicated to the deity.
