Beautiful temple and nice architecture in three rows! But the white coating on carved sculptures keeps the beauty and details away.

Very ornate and beautiful! The carvings are so impressive. I think the drapery is trying to hide something ;>)

That first image looks like a birthday cake that we would have here in this country. Loved the carved figures.

Amazing design and mix of colours - notably in the first photo. The temple looks like a tiered cake.

Great temple shapes. I hope you're not offended when I say that they remind me a bit of some cakes from my childhood.
