A Temple Under the Clouds

The BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir in Atlanta, Georgia is a traditional Hindu mandir, or place of worship, inaugurated on 26 August 2007 by the BAPS Swaminarayan Sanstha, a denomination of the Swaminarayan branch of Hinduism. The mandir located in the Atlanta suburb of Lilburn, was constructed in accordance with ancient Hindu architectural scriptures, and is one of the largest mandir of its kind outside of India.

Framing Glassmine Falls

After a good rain, the view of skinny Glassmine Falls on Blue Ridge Parkway cascading down a cliff across the valley is very dramatic. During drier weather, the waterfall reduces to a trickle. While the sign at the overlook claims it is 800 feet tall, you are probably looking at a 200 foot drop.
