Meenakshi Amman Temple

In Madurai, Tamil Nadu, India, lies a 45-acre temple complex dedicated to the Hindu Goddess Parvati and her husband consort, Shiva. The Meenakshi Amman Temple is surrounded by ten towers, which are each covered with thousands of stone statues depicting Hindu figures. The picture shown here is but a small detail of one tower. Kuriositas has photographs of the towers up close and far away, the temple complex itself, and interior shots, all with breathtakingly intricate details. Link -via the Presurfer

Stunning. Would love to see them in person, alas... I don't think India is a safe country for women - perhaps more unsafe for non-Indian women - at this time. I think I'll plan a vacation far away from there for now.
