Brihadeeshwara Temple, Tanjore, India

I had the privilege to visit Brihadeeshwara Temple (UNESCO World Heritage site), located in Tanjore, Tamil Nadu, in the south of India after a gap of 30 years.

I could not resist taking out an A4 piece of paper and start sketching this marvelous intricate architecture that stood in front of me. So this is what happened in the next 30 minutes:

Indeed fully satisfied 🙂
