Poetry in Stone - 29

This is twenty-ninth in the series on the rich cultural heritage of ancient temples in India. The ancient temples are richly carved and each of the carvings surpass each other in their mastery. 

Inside the Kailasa Temple of Ellora surrounding the maim shrine there is a pillar courtyard. This courtyard has several panels depicting various legends of Shiva and Vishnu.

In this courtyard there is a gallery of twelve panels depicting Shiva legends. On these panels there are Shiva and Parvati in various attitudes.

On the external wall of Mallikarjuna Temple, Basaralu there is a beautiful sculpture of Karthikeyan on peacock.
