The Keebler Elf Tree

Admit it - you saw this and the Keebler elves came to mind, no? No one gave me a cookie for just stopping by though.




This scene completely fascinated me. What on earth? Which came first, the temple or the tree? What exactly goes on here? (I actually don't want to know the complete answer to that.)

This is the Dumbharai Temple located in a neighborhood not far from us. It isn't particularly famous. I just happened upon it one day and made a point to go back when I had a camera. I could have included this on a post dedicated to Temple architecture but hey ... this is a one of kind.

I'm pretty sure those lions ate the elves. Mighty short sighted of them--no one to feed them cookies anymore. They're bummin'.

And OH, the Himalayas! I would love to see them. I am with that guy you spoke of--those solid, majestic mountains remind me of the rock that God is in our lives. In our Bible study this week we studied Psalm 125 that says (my paraphrase) as the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the Lord surrounds his people. Such security!

So very cool. And we live on Hollow Tree Lane. But no Keebler elves in our culdesac :-)

I totally agree that is the Keebler elf tree. Sucks about the cookies.

That IS fascinating and very unique. I wonder how they did that? Yes, it does look like an elf temple actually!
