Mahabalipuram: Temple Carvings

The place is strewn with carved temples like this... you can see one in the background too. Notice the base is solid rock, these ancient people must have really worked hard to create these monuments. Please click on the picture to enlarge it.

It must be thrilling to live somewhere where buildings as well as traditions can be thousands of years old.
