How amazing to have a village where 5 languages are spoken.
I really like the first image, there is something warm about it and the pool appears so clean, I would love to dip my toes in it.;))

This is very interesting! Do you think that most people in the area speak all five languages? How else would they be able to function together? Fascinating!

It looks like an interesting place to visit. It also looks more rural than some of the other places you feature but I am not sure. I like the water photo.

Akshay said...

In a country like India, it is amazing to find a place like Manjeshwara.. The architecture of the temple looks so beautiful. I love the name "Pancha Bhasha Bhumi". Please explore the place called Mattur in Karnataka. It is the only place where people still speak in Sanskrit :) . Looking forward to seeing more information about this place from you :)

Rajesh...You have given us all another wonderful gift from India with your photographs. I adore the one with the water and the ducks. It reminds me of a Roman bath but one for little ducklings. The temple is lovely. genie
