“Faces here and there”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

I can imagine the caloused hands who did the craft, with love for the labor that they did. A lot of restoration going on though i think it should be done faster as a lot of stones seem to have fallen to the wrong places already. A temple worth the visit!

I love all the smiling faces in this temple. One face and one tower but with four smiling faces. These are faces facing to the four directions.
