Relief called Arjuna’s penance.

I find Hindu mythology confusing, I am sure it is me not the mythology. We were told there are 33 million gods and godesses, but they are all manifistations through meny transformation from the three main gods: Bramha, the creator, Vishnu the maintainer and organizer and Shiva, the destroyer making room for Bramha. But these three again are manifestations of one energy, so they say Hinduism is monotheistic.

This as an introductions to carvings of some of 33 millions.

A steep rockwall was completely filled with rock carvings showing mythological stories. These stories are often so far-fatched they are difficult to remember. Not that I try too hard either. But the result is impressive and here are some of the figures.
