After the temple proper, I went around the left hand side and walked to the plans. Here are some of the photographs of this 400 meter walk.
A water spout. Looks quite frightening, eh?
Wait till you see the gaping mouth, quite a frightening situation, lol.
this was amazing, this is a draughts/chess like game board which has been carved into the stone. To my very uneducated eyes, this has to be fairly old based upon the erosion of the edges. If this was done when the temple was made, here’s a sort of proof that draughts were also played in India at least a millennia before.
The carvings have been worn away but you can still make out the work.
I decided to walk around the side to make sure that the parental units were fine and they hadnt massacred each other. As it so happens, Baba leapt up and said, I will come with you to see the stone plans. I think they had enough of the loving bickering by then.
The construction ramp. It is a solidly constructed thing with proper stone walls and filled with earth and stones. Well, it has to be good and solid otherwise the damn thing would take the weight of the hundreds of tons of construction moving up and down.
But now I have reached the stone plans which is another amazing sight.
