Other Buildings Photo # 8

These are two lamp posts of an ancient Hindu temple battered by invading Muslims near Mhasve village in Jalgaon district of Maharashtra. They are only a foot apart. If one person climbs up to the top of each of these pillars and one stretches his leg thrusting it against the other lamp post, both the pillars rock gently. Ancient Hindus raised such rocking edifices in many other places such as Gurdaspur and Ahmedabad alias Karnavati.

As stated at the beginning of this presentation, in case you did not read it, the captions above the photos are kept the way they were found in the album, so the style of English and the explanations are kept the same. I (Stephen Knapp) did not write these captions, though many people think I did.
