Some pictures for comparison

Some pictures to show the comparison of the size of the magnificent masterpiece of all times, the Brahadeeshwara Temple

There are 8 such nandhis atop the Cupola, just compare the size with the person sitting nearby. Each such nandhi is carved out of a single rock

The base of the Periya Kovil, just compare the size of the Vimanam (Tower) with the people standing at the base. the view is from the behind of the Temple Vimana

This is the view from the terrace above the Mandapam

This is the image of the Big Nandhi of the Big Temple carved out of a single rock

The Periya Kovil not only contains massive pieces of architecture but also finest pieces and here is one such example of micro-technology, a small strand goes through the hole of the carvings

More to come, until then...
