Wall Painting of Ocean Churning, Chhatradi Temple

   There are three world famous temples dedicated to the goddess Durga excelling in wood-work and wood sculpture. These are Mrikula in Chamba district 8 kms. Trekking from Luna Bridge on the way from Chamba to Bharmour. Here the photographer has captured now vanishing and decaying murals on the outside walls of the sanctum sanctorum. This is one scene of the churning of the ocean (Samuder Munthan). The colours, decorative designs and the fourteen jewels that came out of the ocean like Lakashmi, Eravat Elephant, Kamadhenu etc. are so beautifully portrayed here.
