Virtual Tour of Amazing Hindu Temple

hindu temple 123 
Take a virtual tour of India's Meenakshi Amman Temple in Madurai and dedicated to the goddess Parvati and her consort Shiva.

It was built early in the Common Era and almost destroyed in 1310 when the Islamic conqueror Malikkapur invaded.

According to the Huffington Post where you can see some great photographs, "the temple has five entrances and is 847 feet long and 792 feet wide with a sacred pond in the center where adherents believe Indra's Golden Lotus to have first bloomed."

In addition to the awesome virtual tour, here's a clip about the temple below.
