DHARASURAM CHARIOT TEMPLE








This Temple in South India,is a store house of fine architecture.Built by the Raja Raja Chola King in 12th Century
this architecture has been recognised by UNESCO as
World Herittage Monument.

The temple has been built as a chariot drawn by horses.
It is also seen that this architecture is an inspiration to Konark  Sun Temple (in Orissa Northern India) of 13th Century.

Viswakarma Shilpis(sculptors) of that golden periods have left this historical imprints, supported/sponsored by the
great kings of those regions/kingdoms.

Seeing these architectures one would be driven  to wonder as to how it could have happened with stones with small small chisels.

 Totally inspired by the temple architecture I worked
with pen to bring about the scene in white paper.\
