Many deities stood together on the roof of the Hindu temple

Shot at a Hindu temple in Kandy, Sri Lanka.

Although the religious majority in Sri Lanka was Buddhism, there were also Hindus. Therefore, there were also Hindu temples along with Buddhist temples. I found a small Hindu temple when I walked the streets. Its roof was decorated with many statues. Apparently, its style was called 'Dravidian style'.

All of the statues were deities of Hinduism. Because Hinduism is a polytheistic religion, many deities stood on the roof of the temple. There were so many deities that it was impossible to distinguish.
