'The architecture combined the Armenian arts on the inside and the Islamic Persian taste on the outside. The frescos depicting biblical stories were stunning and of Michaelangelo vibe. The existence of this place was an exceptional devotion to the overseas Armenia who were displaced during the Ottoman War; it was also a sign of tolerance, the fact that how Armenian centre of faith was well preserved and celebrated in this very Muslim country.'

'Theyyams are not always performed at temples. In fact, most of them are held in a ‘kaavu’, which is a village shrine, and usually not even found on google maps. Some are even held in houses. Add to the fact that the Theyyam at this specific shrine happens only once a year, and you can realize why it is often so difficult to see one in person. But if you want to plan a visit to the Theyyam next year, here is a tip. Go to the official website of Kerala tourism, where they have uploaded a calendar of the Theyyams at different places. You can thank me later. Pro-tip: The dates are NOT set in stone, so before you visit, give a call to the number mentioned in the calendar to confirm. Also, certain Theyyams are female-only or male-only. While I certainly don't appreciate that differentiation, also check with the number if there is any such thing, before you make your actual visit. Also, the calendar on the tourism website has only about 30% of the Theyyams listed. Ask around the local people, and they would be the best folks to tell you about any Theyyams happening in the vicinity. And that is exactly how me and @taskintheworld found this Theyyam, which was happening inside an ancestral village house in Dharmadam, near Thalassery. Just by asking the locals. By @abhi_is_not_home

'What you are seeing are the homes of the few Thais who still live in the Cheow Lan Lake in Khao Sok. Surrounded by jungle, with very little Internet access and sometimes no access to electricity, the stillness of this place came to bother me the first few days but now that I look back it may have been one of my favorite places on the trip to Thailand.'
