"What an incredible sculpting. Not just the inner temple but the entire walls of the temple are just filled with beautiful sculpting of the Ramayana. Just loved to see the greatness of the sculptures from the ancient times. Sculpted beams supporting the top of the inner sanctum are made of granite which is more fascinating."
