While researching my novella 'City of Victory' I fell in love with this World Heritage Site all over again.
Inside, I walked down a little corridor flanked with oil lamps. Beneath my feet, the stones were sticky with oil. We were just in time. The 'Puja' was about to commence in the inner shrine where in the flame-lit darkness shone the silver mask of the god Narasimha. Many priests milled about, preparing the offerings of flowers, fruit and delicious rice dishes that they would distribute afterwards. It is in this temple that my novella 'City of Victory' begins.
