Great photos showing this amazing architectural form! I love the hieroglyphics on the columns' shafts and the part supported by them - every part of the building tells a story.

Beautiful photographs of the pillars. The floral designs seem o convey something. They could be pictographs.

Fantastic! What amazes me slightly more than the gorgeous carvings themselves is that they have not been weathered more.
