Beautiful, carving. Great capture. I am preparing for a Mission Trip to Eluru, India in July, and am enjoying all your post from India.

Beautiful carvings, Phil
shuliesandstone is a common materila used, and we saw lots of beautiful things made with it
Seeing sandstone carvings this old and in such near pristine condition is quite remarkable. Very nice capture, Phil. :-)
peterwhen I saw such places in the midst of landfill like garbage all around, I kept asking myself why the ethic of cleanliiness hasn’t spread to where people walk and live…..i got frisked by security going into this place and they took four cough drops from me wrapped in paper, unwrapped one and handed it back to me.
