Old and new by golftragic

Old and new

As seen through the bus window as we went past. Communications (Lotus) tower and old Hindu temple. The latter was controversial and part of the very controversial Port City reclaimation project near Galle Face Green.

I wonder why it is controversial, I love how a city preserve the old at the same time striving for a modern society.

You did well to get this in a drive by Marnie. The decoration on Hindu temples is amazing, but the Lotus Tower is pretty impressive too :)

From the article it sounds like Sri Lanka will find itself holding a tiger by the tail when all the building is done. The artwork on the temple is amazing and while the tower is impressive it doesn't seem to have the attention to detail that its older neighbor does. Good shot.
