Descent of the Ganges


This huge bas-relief at Mamallapuram is a real thing of beauty. Even the finest sculptors of today cannot recreate this with their modern tools. If you have not been to Mamallapuram, i strongly urge you that you do so immediately. Although the salty winds have eroded this rock-cut structure over the ages, one wonders, how skilled our ancestors must have been.

No wonder it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
