Garjiya Devi Temple , Himalayan Foothills, India

For Sale  Oil painting by David William Young.

Size 72’’ X 30’’

I first became acquainted with this temple when riding through the foothills to Nainital, a former British hill station in northern India.The temple which is perched on the huge rock which stands defiantly on the flood plain of the river Kosi, is visited by thousands of devotees to the Goddess Naina Devi. A large fair is held on the plain during Poorinima.I have made several visits to this stunning location which is on the edge of Corbett National Park and came to the conclusion a large painting was needed to recreate the physical sensation of being there. On the left of the picture pilgrims are crossing the hurdle and stone bridge while to the right local women are returning from the forest with faggots and fodder. The mellow, hazy, evening light was central to this picture, accentuating the magnificence of this holy edifice.
