Absolutely stunning temple. Rock carving is beautiful. The big rock statue of Wild boar with amazing carving.
This is the best preserved and most informative temple on the site. Dating to about 930 AD, it’s various “layers” depict to path of man from the origin of the cosmos up to (and beyond) enlightenment. An expert guide is needed to interpret all this. Avoid the sensational guidebooks that only talk about the supposedly obscene poses.
