beautiful+rock+carvings" The carvings in the walls of the temple"
How could these people do this carvings as simple as painting into a canvas in that ancient period?. Don't you think its marvellous...The rock wall sculptures are all some incidents from the Hindu holy books.. The characters are mainly representing Hindu Gods..

The rock is a huge natural formation and is remaining in the slope as such for years. There is a strange belief regarding the rock that, " when ever the rock gets misplaced or fells down from that position the world will end". Do you wanna believe it?

Watch the feeble contact of the stone and the rock beneath. Seems like only a little contact there. Scientific observation is that the stone is balancing the weight proportionately and so its remaining in the place.

We went there and tried to push it, hmmmmm there was a slight movement!!!!!
