I took this shot on 26 December last year. The temple was beautifully decorated with flowers and lights. It was the last day of Mandala pooja celebrations. The temple has special poojas and offerings on that day every year.
The temple is in Vasai, Maharashtra. It is built in traditional Kerala style of temple architecture and is dedicated to Shri Ayyappan. Other deities are that of Shri Ganapathi, Durga Devi, Shri Subramania, Shri Krishna, Shri Shiva and the Nava Grahas. There is also a Sarpakkavu.
I was carrying my mobile camera Nokia C7-00 with me. I captured the image with it. Exposure program was in automatic. I later edited the photo in Photoshop with Curves and Color Balance adjustments.
