Such is the abundance of granite rock at Hampi that massive projects could easily be envisaged. Like constructing two lengthy arcades for the entranceway to a temple complex. Hundreds of massive pillars, heavy but simple, for a massive project indeed.

In contrast, inside the complex, reliefs of love and tenderness that clearly betray how much the sculptors enjoyed themselves when cutting them.
