Photography, for him, is just an artistic pursuit with endless
rewards. The creation of an image is always an exciting journey.
Forever, capturing these beautiful moments converts this journey

depth the subject involved with instinct in recording Impressions
to such a moment in time. His goal is to give this momentary image
its own voice. He has been working & exploring on this theme from
last 12 months while visiting many Jain Temples in the states of
Gujarat, Rajasthan, Jharkhand, Bihar, Karnataka, and Madhya Pradesh.
Apart from his 31 religious trips to Palitana, he had 9 more trips,

these pictures a 3 dimensional quality. This will be a rare opportunity

and sensations of the Jain Temples & their ritual in India.
