Did Giants Build Lepakshi Temple? Search for the Lost Giants in India

The temple of Lepakshi has many curious stories around it, which seem like fairy tales, but if we dig deeper, we find evidence of these strange stories. Did Giants exist a long time ago, and if they did, did they build these incredible structures at Lepakshi? Even though archeologists argue that this temple was built just 500 years ago, locals are convinced that this temple was built much earlier by gods of giant stature. Of course, there is a huge footprint in this temple, which could belong to a giant that stood around 25 to 35 feet, but we’ll get to this in a minute. Watch the video below or read on.

The best evidence is not this foot print found inside the temple, it is this giant bull carved 500 meters outside the temple of Lepakshi. The town of Lepakshi has the largest carving of the Indian Bull or Nandhi in the world. Made out of a single rock, this bull is exquisitely carved and stands nearly 15 feet tall and 27 feet long. Archeologists say this Bull was created just 500 years ago.

But there is something very strange about this bull, it stands alone.  According to sacred Indian architecture, every bull must be associated with a lingam and vice versa. Ancient Indian texts confirm that the bull must be carved in front of a lingam. But as you can see, there is no lingam in front of it. Why would ancient builders carve the world’s largest bull and forget to put a lingam, which is the main god? Why did they create this brilliant monolithic carving and leave it alone? Archeologists don’t have the answer to this question, but locals do. The lingam associated with this bull is found 500 meters away, inside the temple walls. This gigantic lingam stands nearly 12 feet tall, and is protected by a 7 headed reptilian god known as Naga. 

This type of lingam is called Nagalingam and what you are seeing is the largest Nagalingam in the world. And if you look around this lingam, you see something interesting..there is no bull in front of it. So, what is the purpose of carving a bull in front of a lingam? I have always argued that every sculpture in Indian temples was made for a reason, so how was the bull used? Ancient Vedic texts mention a way of worshiping the lingam, which is forgotten today. The ancient people put 2 fingers on the horns of the Nandi, and viewed the lingam through it. 

Hindus strictly followed this routine until the last few centuries. This was the actual purpose of the bull. If you climb on this huge bull and look through these 2 horns, you can see the gigantic lingam, even today. Of course, this not only confirms that this bull belongs to this lingam, but something much more astounding. The race that created these carvings, must have been tall enough to view the lingam through these horns. Since the bull is 15 feet high, the ancient builders must have been around 30 feet tall. Today, if you view through the horns, you will only see half the lingam, because the temple walls prevent you from seeing the rest of it. Why would the ancient builders create a wall, and a temple leaving the bull outside?

The lingam and the bull were built by a race of giants but the newer temple which is what we see today was built in the last 500 years. If you compare these 2 figures with the rest of the features, we can see a striking difference. The original builders used a monolithic architecture. Both these structures are not only much bigger than everything else, the lingam and the bull were also made out of single rocks. The new architecture is quite different. 

Let’s take a look at these walls – huge slabs were cut and were interlocked, similar to Machu Picchu in Peru. Don’t get me wrong, this is also extraordinary technology, it is extremely difficult to fit these blocks together, look at the corners, but this was created just 500 years ago. The temple as we see it today, was built by assembling blocks of stone, but the original temple that existed here used single stone architecture.

If we calculate the area of the original temple using the distance between the bull and the lingam, it would stretch for many miles, making it the largest temple in India. What happened to the rest of the structures of this temple? Locals claim a huge flood happened many thousand years ago, which wiped out the rest of the structures of this original temple. The only features left out were the giant bull, the lingam and this giant footprint. 

The giant footprint was completely faded when the water receded. However, to remember the past and to make sure that it does not get corroded away, sculptors carved on top of the original footprint. So, locals admit to carving on the footprint but insist that it existed in the first place.

India is the only country which has still preserved its ancient religion and monuments. Ancient Indian history, now known as mythology, is still read by millions of people. But the most important piece of history comes from locals. Local history gets passed on from generation to generation orally, and this man is not just another local, he is the official tour guide of Lepakshi Temple. He explains that the original temple was built by gods and this footprint belongs to Sita, the wife of Lord Rama. He then tells me something startling: Sita was 25 feet tall, but she was a petite woman. During her time, everyone was 28 to 30 feet tall. And then, thousands of years later, Lord Krishna appears, and he stood around 15 feet tall. He also mentions that the builders of the new temple, who existed 500 years ago, were also 8 feet tall. 

If this is true why don’t we find skeletons of giants? We find skeletons of 100 feet dinosaurs, and we find a new one every week, so why don’t we find these giant skeletons of ancient builders. Do we really not find these skeletons, or is this information suppressed by secret societies like the Illuminati to prevent us from learning the truth? We have plenty of newspaper clips about giants who stood 8 feet tall. Until the last 50 years, even archeologists admitted to finding these giant skeletons all over the world. 

Is it possible, that they were merely finding ordinary human beings who were just suffering from gigantism? After all, even today we have these giants who stand 7 to 9 feet tall. But the evidence of prehistoric giants gets better. Krishna was 15 feet tall. We have actual evidence of giants who stood more than just 9 feet tall. The Giant of Castelnau was 11.5 feet tall, and we have actual photographs showing that the arm bone of this giant is nearly twice as thick as our human bone.

 In this picture you can see the human bone in the center looks half as thick as the giant’s bone on both the sides. This is not a newspaper clip by the way, it was published in a science magazine called La Nature in 1890. This science magazine is still popular today in France and is published under a different the name (La Recherche). We have many other clips of giants who stood 15 feet as well.
However, the biggest evidence of giants was unearthed in India itself. The tour guide claims that Sita was a short woman: 25 feet tall, but everyone else during that time was 28 to 30 feet. Is this really a tall claim or is it true?

 How about this piece of news showing a 32 feet giant unearthed in India? Published in more than a dozen different newspapers around the world, the footprint size would accurately match a giant of this size. I have talked about this news in detail in another video. 

Believe it or not, there are thousands of newspaper clips all over the world which show giant skeletons but somehow the general public is brainwashed by the new world order into thinking they are all hoaxes . So what do you think? Did Giants build Lepakshi temple? Or are these evidences – the world’s largest bull, largest Nagalingam and the largest footprint just hoaxes to fool us? Is there some truth to what the locals are telling us, or are they lying to us? Please let me know your thoughts in the comment section.

How does the Hanging Pillar of Lepakshi Temple in India work? Anti-gravity? Levitation?

The Lepakshi temple in India is a very mysterious place. I have roamed around this area for many weeks looking for evidence of Gods. Local stories are very interesting and the people are super-friendly. There are several interesting features in the Veerabhadra Temple (aka Lepakshi temple). I am gonna show you not just the mystery of the hanging pillar, but also show you exactly how it works. Watch the video below or read on. 

In this temple, you can see many people doing the same thing: Put a piece of cloth underneath and slide it around the other side, proving that the pillar is disconnected from the floor. This is considered one of the wonders of India, how did ancient people construct a huge pillar that defies gravity and is hanging in mid air?

These kind of mysteries always interest me, so I decided to visit the temple. Right from the start, I am fascinated by the carvings in this temple, like this cow for example, which shows multiple postures in the same sculpture. Carvings like these are brilliant, they create a video effect. You can cover any two of the three heads, and see what's going on. 

But that’s another post, so I end up at the hanging pillar which attracts thousands of tourists every day. As you can see this is a huge block of granite around 20 feet tall, with brilliant carvings. Now, I just have to prove it to you that this pillar is disconnected from the floor. 

So, I ask this elderly couple who have come with a towel. Watch how they slide the towel on one side, and it goes all the way on the other side. This shows that ancient technology employed anti-gravity and levitation, because there is no way a 20 foot granite block which weighs many tons can hang in mid-air.

So, how does it actually work, and attract thousands of visitors every day? It works, because nobody is showing you the rest of the footage. We have dozens of videos of the this hanging pillar on YouTube, but nobody shows you what happens next: Here is what happens. You can slide a piece of cloth through one end, but you cannot pull it out on the other end. If the pillar is completely disconnected from the floor, we should be able to pull the cloth on the other side. However, the cloth I slide is gonna get stuck in one of the corners. The pillar is not really hanging in mid air, because one of its corners is clearly resting on the floor, which is how it still stands.

 If you examine it closely, you can visually confirm this. The pillar does not employ antigravity or levitation. So, did the ancient people create an imperfect pillar? Well it turns out that the British Government decided to do some repairs during pre-independence era, and attempted to remove the pillar. But they couldn’t, because it was fixed so perfectly, they could only dislodge it. They realized that removing this pillar is impossible, so they left it in this weird position. That is the true story behind this dislodged pillar.

 However, there is a bigger mystery in this temple, that needs to be decoded. Did Giants leave a footprint in this temple?

Secret of the Drinking Rock - Mahabalipuram, India

During my visits to Mahabalipuram in India, I've noticed  a large rock that is popularly called "the drinking rock" (Sarakku Paarai in Tamil) where locals gather and have some drinks at night. Watch the video below or read on.

 You can see that broken bottles have completely covered the rock.  It also looks like somebody threw up last night, must have been a wild party. Now, why would I bitch about people having a good time on an isolated rock? Well, here is the catch: This is the top of a very ancient monument. Underneath the ground, is a large temple with valuable history. You can see the writings (picture below) in an ancient language which was last used by Pallava kingdom, which ended around 900 A.D. So obviously the inscription on it is at least 1100 years old,  although, I estimate it to be a much older structure and I'll explain that in a minute.

You can see these writings have already been partially damaged, and I am yet to decode what these words mean, but why would I say there is an ancient temple underneath? Just a few hundred feet away, lies a large boulder. But it is not just a boulder, it is an ancient temple.

In 2004,  when Tsunami hit this place, this place was completely submerged under water. But the real surprise came,  when the water receded, because it uncovered this temple. They have found a massive structure with brick work, granite and a lot of other material.  Archeologists estimate this temple to be around 2000 years old.

You see this line right here (above picture), before the Tsunami only what's above that line was visible and everything below it was buried under ground. People imagined that this was just another rock too. If you look closely near the top of this boulder, what do you see?

You will see similar writings on top of this rock as well, just like the drinking rock. So before the Tsunami in 2004, this temple would have looked very similar to the drinking rock.

There are other similarities as well. You can see this line here that goes all the way from the top to the sides. Lines like these were cut in ancient times to get the rock marked for carvings.  Lines like these are also found on the temple boulder. It is a mystery, how they cut these fine lines without any wedges or chisel marks.  Right next to the drinking rock, you can also see other rocks cut with wedge marks. The same wedge marks and rock cuttings are also found in the temple that was recently uncovered. I've shown you how the ancient people used water and wedges to cut rocks in a different video called ancient rock cutting technology.

What must have happened 1100 years ago? A massive tsunami would have hit this area and basically buried all these temples. Those who survived must have carved these writings to mark them as temples buried underneath. This theory makes a lot of sense because when the temples were in use, there is no reason to make these carvings on top of the temple. Because at that time, the ground level not today's ground level, it was much lower.  And nobody would have been able see those carvings. So, if the writings were done after the temples went underground and if they were written in this ancient language, that pushes the age of the temples much farther than 1100 years. It is very likely that this temple is also 2000 years old, just like the one nearby.

So, it should be obvious that these writings, cuttings and wedge marks are not random coincidences and the drinking rock is an ancient temple, patiently waiting to be uncovered. I hope there is no need for another tsunami and if this video gets shared enough, archeologists might excavate it. At least they can put a fence around it, to prevent future damage.

India's Oldest Secret Found Hiding in Plain Sight at Darasuram Temple

Let’s take a look at how to decode ancient Indian carvings, and by the end of this blog post you will realize that understanding these gods leads us to completely new discoveries, which are hiding in plain sight. Watch the video below, or you can read further.

The Airavatesvara temple at Darasuram houses thousands of carvings. Historians think the temple was built about 850 years ago by Chola kingdom. One the temple wall, there is a deity carved who holds 2 flowers in his hands.  If you read Indian scriptures, you will realize that this represents the Sun God, Surya. Now, within a distance of 10 feet, on another side of the temple, we can see the same Sun God carved again. This is a rare sight, to see the same deity carved twice, close to each other. Why did the ancient builders carve the same god twice, within a distance of 10 feet? Of course, the standard answer is quite simple: It is a Hindu temple, and thousands of gods are carved for religious worship. This is not a satisfactory answer for me, because I’ve always argued that every carving was done for a specific reason. So, I take a closer look at each of them. Here are these 2 carvings side by side, and  you can try to figure out the difference between them.

What is the difference between these 2 Sun Gods?
What did you find? The carving on the left shows that the flowers are just beginning to bloom – look at the petals. The carving on the right, shows the flowers in full bloom, the petals are wide open. In ancient Vedic texts, the Sun God is shown holding 2 lotus flowers. The lotus will begin to bloom in the morning sun and will remain wide open until the sun sets in the evening. So, this carving represents the Morning Sun, and this carving represents the Evening Sun. So, we have now understood the meanings of these 2 carvings, but we are only scratching the surface of the mystery. You can see that the Sun God is carved above the horse. Is anything carved below the horse as well? Hidden from the eyes of casual visitors, this deity is carved underneath. Who is he?

From his hair, and the weapons he is holding, he can be identified as a god by the name of “Kaala Bhairava”.If you look at the standard explanations of this God, it is somewhat simple and it is known as a fierce or frightful form of Lord Shiva. But a deeper look into this deity, shows that the word Kaala means Time and the word Bhairava is split into three words, Creation, Sustenance and Destruction. So, the real meaning of Kaala Bhairava is something similar to the eternal timekeeper. Now, we know the meaning of these 3 carvings, but we still don’t know why they have been carved. Think of these 3 deities: The morning sun, the eternal timekeeper, and the evening sun. What could they possibly indicate? What are these horses doing in the middle? If you take a step back and look at the entire picture, the horses on either side are pulling the entire temple, which is shaped like a chariot using these 2 wheels!

Why are these wheels carved here? Each wheel is made of multiple rocks, this is not a monolithic block. I am not gonna  go into the details of how difficult it is to create a circle out of multiple rocks. Why did the ancient builders take enormous pains to create this wheel? If you observe carefully, some spokes are actually carved on 3 different pieces of rock. This kind of precision is nearly impossible! But why did they go to great lengths to achieve this? Merely for decoration? Not a chance! Let’s count the number of spokes – each wheel has 32 spokes. Believe it or not, these 2 wheels make up an ancient clock, a sundial, which is lying around undiscovered for many centuries, until now.

Nobody knows that this is a sundial, even though all these carvings – the timekeeper, the morning sun, and the evening sun, specifically indicate that this is a sundial. These 32 spokes divide 24 hours into 45 minute segments. One wheel can be used in the morning, and the other wheel in the afternoon. Now you know why the ancient builders carved the morning Sun above one wheel, and the evening sun above the other wheel.

In another video, I have already shown you how the Sundial at Konark Sun Temple works in detailed fashion, so I am not gonna bore with the same information. But really quickly, the angle between each spoke represents 45 minutes, and 45 minutes are split into 10 beads, which can specifically show the current time up to the accuracy of four and a half minutes. I have asked the locals and the priests, but nobody knows that this is a sundial. Searching on the internet also gives us no results, which means I have just discovered this sundial.

Historians tell us that the oldest sundial in India exists at Konark temple, which was built around 1250 A.D. However, this temple was built in 1150 A.D, 100 years before Konark temple. So, I think I just discovered the oldest sundial in India. This seems like a fairly intelligent discovery, but let us go back in time, about 800 years ago. This would have been common knowledge! A visitor would walk around the temple, look at the Sun God, and immediately recognize that these wheels tell time. Just like how we look at our watches today, he or she would calculate the time, and walk away. Yet historians are telling us that 800 years ago, most people in India were uneducated and living in mud huts. Archeologists who have documented all these carvings will tell us these Gods were carved out of blind faith, and have no scientific or practical meaning.

In another post, I have already shown you how the entrance and exit signs are carved at Darasuram temple. The entrance symbol is located near the morning Sundial and the exit sign, near the evening Sundial. If you have worked in an average store or a gas station, we use something called a "Time Clock System". Every day, employees get their cards punched with the current time before they start working, and just before leaving they get them punched again. It turns out that the ancient Indians did the same thing: An employee of the temple would look at the morning Sundial before entering the premises, and after his day is over, would look at the evening sundial while leaving. Even better, they might have had guards at the entrance and exit signs who noted down when the employee entered or left, using the Sundial.

The truth is, every ancient Indian temple has loads of hidden secrets hiding in plain sight. If you start looking, you can understand why these brilliant carvings were created. For example, look at this little guy (below picture) who is driving the horse and the chariot. Under the morning sun, this guy has just started his day, his hair is well groomed, he is smiling and his one leg is in front of the other, he is looking forward and has just begun driving the chariot. Under the evening Sun, the same guy is carved frowning, because he is tired, his hair is all messed up, his legs are wide apart, one of his hands is on his hips, and he is looking away from the horse, because his day is over.
Left: Chariot rider in the morning. Right: Evening

If you visit this temple, look at the elephants as well, they give you enormous insight about what the ancient builders were really trying to tell us. Now, I want to point out that this sundial is just the tip of the iceberg. There are bigger secrets hiding in plain sight. For example, we found the eternal timekeeper carved below one of the horses. What lies below the other horse? A big surprise!

Lord Buddha. Why is Buddha carved in a Hindu temple? Historians swear that Chola Kings who built the temple were strict Shaivaites (worshipers of Shiva) and were intolerant of other faiths. However, we not only see other gods such as sculptures of Vishnu in the temple, but also Buddha! This shows that the Chola Kings were not just tolerant, they were welcoming other religions into their temples. The Tamil kings had a brilliant way of embracing all cultures: they used both Tamil and Sanskrit names, and allowed all faiths to merge into Hinduism.

Every carving has a meaning, so why is Buddha carved under this horse, hidden from the eyes of casual visitors? This hand signal of Buddha is also rare to find in ancient sculptures. This hand signal is called 'Jnana Mudra' which means “Symbol of Knowledge or Wisdom”. What knowledge is he pointing to? How is he connected to the eternal timekeeper on the other side?

Consider these points if you are trying to decode this further:

1)      The term Kaala not only means time as in Past, Present or Future, but has deeper scientific meanings as well. The ancient Sanskrit and Tamil texts show something quite interesting: A day, which is 24 hours, is divided into 60 units of Kala. Therefore 1 unit of Kala is equal to 24 minutes.

2)      Buddhists use a complex and esoteric teaching called Kalachakra, which literally means “the wheel of time”. The ancient text by the name of “Kalachakra Tantra” describes 2 wheels, the outer wheel and the inner wheel.

3)      Below, you can see carvings of  a few more deities carved nearby, which will help your further understanding. Who are these gods? And why are they carved nearby?

Identify these gods and find out the ancient builders were telling us!
Decoding these points will lead you to bigger secrets. May be the secret is hiding in plain sight, try watching the video, examine the pictures posted here and comment on what you found. Don't forget to share this post with your friends because hey, India just got its New Oldest Sundial.

Victims' Letters of Apology to Robert The Doll

About a year ago, I posted the video of Robert the Doll which has received over 400,000 views. Many viewers have sent me emails asking if I could post the letters that were sent to Robert the Doll. Here is part 1, and I may post part 2 someday.  You can watch it as a video below or see the letters by scrolling down. 

 Dear Robert, you have probably received many letters like this from people like me. People who were sure there was no such thing as a “Robert The Doll curse”. You see, it is easy to act tough and try to impress your friends by being disrespectful. And, unfortunately, that is the camp I find myself in. My name is Dan Schulz. Back in 2009 we visited the East Martello Museum, the entire purpose of the visit was to come and meet you. We have walked by your old house multiple times over the years, and have always wanted to visit you at the museum.  Our visit was fun and informative, and seeing you was the best part. I am not sure what made act like a jerk to you. I didn’t ask for your permission to take your picture, and I openly mocked you. Like I said, I was just trying to be funny and impress the people I was visiting with. I in no way actually meant what I said, and I realize now I made a big mistake. Since that day in late 2009, we have had a run of bad luck. I have had multiple health issues; (I had a near-death experience with Anemia) we have had family members and pets die, and bad luck with our finances that ended us filing for bankruptcy and still having financial difficulties. The purpose of this letter is to profoundly apologize and ask for your forgiveness. I have talked about this event on a popular travel podcast that I am the co-host of (a podcast is a radio show people can hear on their computers) and will always speak with high respect of you. Again Robert, please accept my sincere apologies and if you see fit to forgive and end the bad luck, I would appreciate it, as would my family.
Dan Schulz, West Palm beach, FL. The note stuck on it says “Please post where Robert the Doll will see this."

He also gets letters from celebrities. Click here to see letters from George W. Bush, Jeb Bush and the Mayor of Key West then Governor of Florida and he may be even become the President one day.

Robert the Doll also has international victims. Below is a letter from Japan.  

 Dear Robert, 
Hello Robert, how are you?
I am not good. I have a backache. I don’t know why my back is hurt. Then I remember you, 2 months ago I took a picture ofyou. I am so sorry, I didn’t know that I cant take a picture of you. Should I delete the picture? I must apologize for the delay of sending you mail. I don’t know how I can apololgize, So I am writing this letter. I am so sorry, I hope your life is very good.  – Naoya, Citiba Japan. 

There is also this little piece at the end: Dear Robert Please forgive my friend for not asking your permission before taking your picture, he is Japanese and did not understand, so please accept this apology. I really enjoyed visiting you. Dale, Eion NC.

Below are two pictures showing an actual ghost near Robert the Doll. It actually looks like Anabelle the Doll, another infamous Haunted Doll.

Below is a letter from a woman named Kathy.

Robert, Sorry I did not ask out loud to take your photo. Since then my husband lost his diamond (1 carot) out of his ring. I tore my rotator cuff and my daughter’s wedding was cancelled. All happened before I returned home. Please stop the curse I am truly sorry & life is tough enough! Sincerely, Kathy.

Below is another letter from a victim. I personally love this one. 

Dear Robert, I am very sorry for not asking your permission to take your picture while visiting the museum last week. Since I have take your picture without permission, many strange things have happened to me. While driving back from the keys , a deer ran out in front of our car. We had to swerve to avoid hitting it, and ran off the road. We almost hit a tree. 
Two days later, we had a small kitchen fire. Also we have been hearing child like giggles from our basement. Last night I was home all alone. I heard a voice coming from the basement. When I went to investigate,  I tripped and fell down the bottom three stairs. I got up to run out, but the door was locked. My husband said that I probably turned the lock myself without even thinking about it and locked myself in the basement, but honestly Robert we both know the truth. Please accept my deepest apology for taking your picture without asking. Also, please accept my daughter’s apology for sticking out her tongue at you and making fun of you. – Sincerely Rosy.

You can see that these images are not of the best quality. The East Martello Museum has a TV screen which displays the letters sent to Robert the Doll, and I took pictures of them with my camera. And below is one of the pictures I took of the letters, I don’t know why this completely blank. You can see something written on top, but my camera just didn’t get the rest. I have no idea how this happened. I guess I screwed up..wait Robert did it.

Victims don't forget to send Robert a birthday card every year!

8 Legged Acrobat is 800 Years Old - Incredible Indian Sculpture!

Hey guys, I am at the Darasuram Temple in India and let's take a look at this sculpture of a woman with 8 legs. This is a flexible acrobat with one head, two hands and four bodies. It is better to watch it in the video below. 

This is the 8 legged acrobat sculpture in its entirety

Now if I cover the rest of the legs except the top two legs, she is balancing her body weight on the floor with 2 hands. And both her legs are above the head. This is the first position, as seen below.

This is the first position
Now if I cover the other parts, except these 2 legs, this is a different position. Now, both these legs are also up in the air, but while her head is facing us, the body is twisted to the side, as seen below.

This is the 2nd position

If you cover the parts except the 2 legs on this side, you can see the other position. This is the third position, as seen below.

This is the 3rd position
Now, look carefully and you'll see 2 outstretched legs on the floor. If you cover everything else, you can see the woman doing a split (see below). Notice the cute, naughty smile on her face, showing how proud she must have been of her body. 

This is the 4th position
This is not all, because you can see many other positions, if you cover legs in various combinations. In modern day talent shows, you can see people performing these types of flexible acrobatics and getting enormous attention. This sculpture is at least 850 years old which proves that these types of performances existed in India a long time ago. If you look at the background, you can see women dancing on one side and a man on the other. This was probably some kind of a stage performance where the woman is showing her acrobatic skills. The sculptor has masterfully carved all these positions to match just one face.

A juggler is sitting on top of an acrobat - extremely corroded sculpture :(
There are other sculptures in this temple with much more complexity. Here, a woman is sitting on top of the acrobat, apparently juggling and creating more complex positions.  It is a shame that corrosion has taken over and you can't see the details on many of these valuable sculptures.

A similar sculpture, except this has 6 legs instead of 8. 

Yet another sculpture of the acrobat - Was she a celebrity at that time?

This sculpture only has one 2 legs, however you can confused easily - Are the legs down are up?

Here is my question to you: Isn't is obvious that she does not actually have 8 legs and the sculptor carved them to show different positions? I ask this, because, this answers the question to why Indian Gods have so many hands. Take a look at any Indian God and you'll see more than 2 hands. The sculptors in ancient times must have tried to show different positions and they carved multiple arms to show all the weapons and things they used. This is the only way to give a lot of information in a sculpture which cannot show moving images as opposed to a modern day video.

How man hands did this God have? Two or Four?
 However as time went on, this logical way of thinking somehow disappeared. Nowadays, they use it to show power and create shock appeal. The more number of hands, the better it gets.  And I have seen sculptures where you can't even count the number of arms. And these arms are just arms, most of them are empty. This is Avalokitesvara by the way, a very popular god in many Asian countries. So, if you've ever wondered why Indian Gods have so many hands, I hope this sculpture answered the question.
