India – the 1200 year-old Kailasanatha Temple in Kanchipura – Photos

The old temple was made of sandstone which had weathered over the ages. In a few places it had been restored, but I’m glad they did not restore it all. There is something beautiful about natural wear and erosion. I prefer it to the new.

The old statues and columns were things of wonder. While not being religious I do enjoy religious architecture and art. They deployed their very best artists and builders.
