Givens Castle...One of the most haunted sites on the South Side of Chicago is the Beverly Unitarian Church or “The Castle.” The Castle is located on 103rd and Longwood in the Beverly neighborhood of Chicago. Robert Givens, a successful real estate developer turned author, built the Castle in 1886 and requested that it be modeled after the ancient estates in his native Ireland. Some people say that Givens built the house as a gift for his fiance who died before the house was finished.

This is a picture of the Hindu Temple Shiv Mandir in Bangalore, India -- a 65ft statue of Lord Shiva. It was interesting how peaceful it looked and how the temple is very symmetric and balanced.

Shiva is a major Hindu deity, and is the Destroyer or Transformer among the Trimurti, the Hindu Trinity of the primary aspects of the divine. He is regarded as the most powerful god in Hinduism. In the Shaiva tradition of Hinduism, Shiva is the Supreme God and has five important works: creator, preserver, destroyer, concealer, and revealer (to bless).
