Very interesting looking building. How old?

I brightened the shadows a little to see that great detail that was hiding.

If you don't like I will delete

Rudi, thanks for viewing and comments. Much appreciated.

Absolutely no problems, Jim! Thanks for looking, and for the excellent PP work - I am glad you like the details. I posted this particular picture because I liked the effect of the lamp's glow on its immediate surroundings, exactly the way I saw it as it was getting dark. Here is a full view of the tower, shot from the other side facing west before entering the temple, about one and a half hours before sunset, with a harsh sun right behind the tower. This entrance tower is on the east, and the previous shot I posted was shot from inside the temple compound, facing east, as I was leaving the temple. BTW, they say this temple is 1,300 years old. Another view taken from the road is also given below.

G'day mate

You have a great many beautiful buildings around you - this one shows great craftmanship, and to last 1300+/- years is a credit to the country as well

Well done
Phil

Thanks for sharing the lovely photos of this amazing temple building. The detail is fantastic as is the age of the building.

Yes, John, we do have many such ancient temples, but not all of them get to be kept well like this. Thanks for looking and your comments.
