At the Virupaksha Temple of Shiva in Hampi, Karnataka (India)
Herodotus is never shocked at difference, never condemns it; rather, he tries to learn about it, to understand and describe it. Difference? It serves by some paradox only to emphasize a greater oneness, speaking to its vitality and richness.
Ryszard Kapuściński [Travels with Herodotus, 2004]
