The simple reason is, the food is awesome here.  This is a restaurant for authentic Tamil Nadu style food and some tasty Chinese dishes. I am presenting some photographs of food captured in Shree Saravana Bhavan restaurant.  Plain Ghee Dosa The children will love the plain ghee dosa for its shape. It’s a super roast, papery and taste wise it is not bad. For a normal adult, the Ghee Dosa may not be filling.  Fried Rice & Tomato Ketchup The fried rice & tomato ketchup looks tasty! Isn't it?

Devotees from near and far visit this temple to pray for health, wealth, employment, success in business and so on.  The Kalabairavar or Kalabairava is another form of Lord Shiva.

Canon 200D ii Cats Images at Bengaluru There cannot be a better camera other than Canon 200D Mark ii for beginner photographers. I feel it's the best one to start with. Here are some cat images captured with the Canon DSLR camera at my residence in Bengaluru.  White Cat White Cat Images - Canon 200D Mark ii These kittens are the offspring of the mother cat that was a regular visitor to our residence. It used to appear from the kitchen window for food and we lovingly fed it. The mother cat became our friend very soon and now the kittens too. The kittens understand that we are good friends to them.  Bblack and White Cat The Canon 200D Mark ii is a new entry in the gadget list and these cats were first to face the lenses. Fortunately this camera came with two lenses out of which one is the telephoto lens. I put the Canon camera in the auto mode and captured these cat images. I love these photographs, they have really come out well, at least to my satisfaction. Two Cats I hope you like
