The Abode Of Gods : Halebid

"The temple of Hoysaleshwara at Halebid, South India; with the exuberance of its sculrtural art is said to be one of the most remarkable monuments ever produced by the hand of man. As one walks around the temple the carved wall begin to appear as a voluminous illuminated scroll unroll before one's eyes. On them is portrayed the whole world of Indra's heaven carved in infinite detail"
