Yaganti - The Temple of Wonders

There are some temples that have a wonderful mythology attached. Some are rich in architectural splendor, others in the divinity and vibration that they generate. Very few have all these things intact even after several hundreds of years. One such temple is the Yaganti Sri Uma Maheswara Swamy Sivalayam

Amazing wonders of Yanganti Temple

Amazingly Growing Nandi

This Nandi does not sit on a pedestal of any kind, but is sprawled on the ground. The Archaeological Survey of India has observed it growing at the rate of one inch in every 20 years and so he has moved from being directly in front of the sanctum sanctorum to its right.
