This is a work of utter brilliance! The sheer precision of this masterpiece boggles the mind. No mortar is used here to set the stones in place yet the walls are solid, you cannot push them over. Take a look from above –

See the niche? That’s there to stop the stone sliding during an earthquake. The stone cannot passover it unless it lifts up the stones above it. Genius! Again look at the beauty in this stone work –

One final note about this astounding work of art is when you take away all the surrounding walls which were built later and also the protective roof remember one thing ….. this was built in a JUNGLE!
