Unbelievably intricate and beautiful ancient architecture! You can only appreciate this fully when you zoom in and OBSERVE.

These are from India and I feel so sad when I compare the kind of architecture that we had versus what we now have! Just imagine how grand these architectural masterpieces would look if they were restored to their original condition?!

I only have one word for these: Epitome!
