A Few Images from Airavatesvara Temple, Tamil Nadu, India

Airavatesvara Temple is an ancient Hindu temple built in the 12th Century CE and is UNESCO designated Heritage monument along with two other temples in the region.

I had earlier last year posted a few photographs of a few incredibly creative pillars from the temple (I can’t believe it’s almost a year since we visited it).

Today I’m posting a few more images from the temple.
