WLM is an ongoing photo competition, part of the bigger Wiki Loves Monuments 2017. We welcome you all to be part of it, use the upload button at the right.


The basic concept is that people are invited to upload images of monumental objects under a free license for usage on Wikipedia. We want to try to get complete lists of these monuments on Wikipedia, including photos - giving a great and unique overview of the cultural heritage in each country. This, in turn, will also help complete many articles relating to India.

This page is intended to help coordinate the Indian component to the 2017 Wiki Loves Monuments. If you want to volunteer, please feel free to add your name below!

International Winner[edit]

The grand prize goes this year to India! The Khandoba temple in Pune, India is a wonderful view in any day, but this photo is an amazing combination of activity, color and history. During the Bhandara festival, celebrants are showering yellow turmeric powder on crowd around the temple. The play with colors makes it that you can almost smell the turmeric through the photo.
