Figure 5. The 1000-pillar hall in the 600 CE Ekambareswarar (Shiva) Temple, Kanchipuram, India. Shiva linga sculptures are visible between pillars.
Two images side by side show a corridor lined on both sides with intricately carved pillars. Everything—floor, walls, pillars—is made of gray stone. In one image, a woman in a purple and gold sari sits at the foot of one of the pillars.
