There are many things in the world that are beyond my comprehension ... the great pyramids, Stonehenge, the Nazca lines, the human body, cell phones ... and the list goes on. Another one was added recently ... the rock-cut temples of India. It's hard enough for me to imagine how we build sky-scrapers today but the thought of people 2000 years ago "sculpting" a temple out of solid rock just fritzs all my circuits.
This video shows the results ... how I wish someone had videoed the work in process. I can almost get my head around building up but the idea of carving down is beyond me.
