All the King's Horses

A Hindu temple. I don't know the god / goddess that was within the chariot. Hindu temples are fascinating. They have hundreds of sculptures on a single building. All comes in different details and colors. I heard for some temple the craftsmen were actually brought from IndiaYou have to see one to be amazed by it. I was told the religion itself is full of fascinating stories of gods, goddesses, demons and spirits.
The dried grass / hay at the back is used to cover up areas which are currently are under construction.

Cette statue est magnifique, j'aime beaucoup le fond derrière la statue.

This statue is beautiful, I love the background behind the statue.

Hi, Murphy_jay! :)

Those horses are very different from the Tang Dynasty horses I posted. Actually, their faces are almost deer-like, aren't they?

Hi Anon,
The Indian temple is located behind the Panasonic factory near the Motorola bridge. It's opposite Bintang Supermarket.

I also find Hindu temples fascinating. I always find opportunities to visit them and so far I have got some beautiful shots there.
