Stone Crafts

This picture is from the Edakkal caves, 4000 feets above sea level.. edakkal caves is a must visit place when you travel to Wynad, and it was really heart breaking to know that the govt has ruled out climbing over 4000 feets due security reasons.. that rule does ensure the security of the people, but definitely causes the visitors to miss a lot of things to see. this image is supposed to written over the rocks, using stone, around 2000 years past..and this is where i lack a good camera.. see how dumb this awesome work looks in my film.. this image is said as the painting of the then king[see the feather crown works]

the origin of the name edakkal caves is from the malayalam word that means the stone in between.. the structure of edakkal caves is in such a way there are are two rocks, with the enrty passage and another stone is laid on top of it, covering it from the top and making is as a cave.. the third stone that functions as the shade caused the name edakkal..

oy, pray i win the lotto some day so that i can buy one new cam, a HD one !
