Photos of Hindu sculpture, temples, and holy people

This week we augmented our Hinduism gallery with 30 black/white and sepia photographs of Hindu sculptures, carvings, temples and holy people. Stay tuned for more, as we are on a bit of an India kick this month! Below is a rock carving from Mamallapuram depicting the paradise of Indra. Mamallapuram is a group of temples in Tamil Nadu, India, built from the 7th-9th centuries AD, that features scenes from the Sanskrit epic the Mahabharata. It is a UNESCO World Heritage site.
