1000 years old Brihadeeswara temple of Lord Shiva!

when advanced equipment like cranes and transportation technology didn’t exist even then shocking architectural structures were in INDIA 🇮🇳!

And the architecture of the temple makes it OMG!!

This temple is a fine example of the Dravidian architecture built by Raja Raja Chola 1,situated in Tamilnadu. This temple is 216 feet high and more than 130,000 tons of granite is said to have been used to built it. And what is more surprising is that there is neither monument or a rock Hill for approximately 60kms around Thanjavur.

Hey.. How did these heavy rocks come here?

It is said that with the help of 3000 elephants these stones brought from far away. The architecture is based on interlock also known as puzzle technique. Now didn’t get puzzle!

Puzzle techniques means placing one stone with other one just to lock it without plaster or adhesives. There is nothing in between stones. It has been seen that many ancient monuments like London’s Big Ben, Italy’s leaning tower are tilting with time but after 1000years this temple is absolutely straight. This is because of interlocking or puzzle technique.

The other speciality of this temple it was built without digging the earth which means on a plain surface.

Dude, it’s such a superb architecture. That’s is amazing!

Friends the stone placed on the top of this temple also known as KUMBAM weights around 81 tons which is curved out of a single rock. Oh, my God!

I wonder how they would have placed this single stone on top of this temple? To lift this stone, thay made a ramp of around six kilometres long . Elephants, Buffalos and labourers altogether carried the stone to the top of the temple.

Another Fascinating thing about this temple is a bull made up of a single stones!

By looking this, the only thing I can say is OMG! Yeh Mere India 🇮🇳.
