What Carving!

Hastagiri

The ceiling of a Jain temple carved not with machines but with nails and hammer… You will find such intricate work in most of the Jain temples. These temples are called “Derasar”.

  3. I sometimes am left in awe looking at such art!!
    I got the same feeling seeing Edinburgh, imagine, most of the buildings u see alongside the road u drive are like this, intricate, delicate, art!! as those were done by architects in medival period !! probably with slightly complex toolkit!

    Kudos and Hats off to sulptors!!

  4. This is called a Mandala in archeology. Notice that the number of flowers in successive circles increase as the multiples of 8 i.e. the first circle has 8 flowers, the second circle has 16 , then 32, and so on.. This requires immaculte mathematical and geometrical calculations to draw these figures, not to mention a very steady and skilled hand.
