  2. :):) Nice sketches..
    been there... amazing place... One distinct feature was the way the pillars end.
    Generally it's a lion or some *nagam*, but here I could see an elephant faced Lion as potrayed in your first sketch...
    This place is so beautiful... u might find some fotos in this page... http://www.flickr.com/photos/karthikeyanr/page7/

  3. wow!

    I have been to that temple, as a matter of fact the other three lions hold their tail in one way and this guy playfully does soemthing different, if I remember right.
