Raghu, this was amazing. I had not heard of this place, but some friends recently visited India and raved about other similar places. As you quite ably showed us the carvings are intricate and exquisite, I suspect you could spend a week in this place and continue to enjoy yourself thouroughly. Looks like you had a great trip and thanks for sharing this magnificence with us. It does us all well to remember that wonderful cultures have evolved in all parts of the world.

I will agree with Rafael. This looks like a place one could spend a lot of time in. This was a great series. Like an archaeological pictorial travelog. I can't pick a favorite photo though. All are great.

Hi Raghu

Wonderful selection of shots, just goes to show how much India has to offer and not just It services! My only cc is that some pics are just slightly overexposed and thats about it.

Cheers

Many thanks Rafael, Steve and Harj. Harj - not only was it hot and humid when I was there, but it also happened to be around noon time. We were just being steamed and boiled alive and the lesson I learntis not to go there again before September.The sunwas right overhead and there just was no shade. That, I think, accounts for the overexposure which I could not avoid. I was there for roughly 3 hours, but I feel one needs at least one full day or even more to study all the figures sculpted there.

Thank you friends for the extraordinary response for this post. As already said, it is my pleasure to share this with you all.

Raghu
