Too Much Information–Head Throbbing May 3, 2012

Posted by stuffilikenet in Awesome, Uncategorizable.

This is a pair of statues on the Meenakshi Temple in Madurai, India (Tamil Nadu, to be more specific). 


Neat, huh?  I will not bore you with the nearly-incomprehensible description of the deities involved, but the temple itself is damn near made of statues:  33,000 of them.  I am not making this up:

It gets better:  this is part of a temple complex of fourteen towers of this kind.

Spend a little time with Google Image Search.  It will amaze you.
