BAPS Mandir

Dedicated in July, 2004, this temple is constructed of
hand-carved Turkish limestone and Italian marble
Comprised of 33,000 pieces, the temple is fitted together strictly
by tongue and groove-no rods, nails, or screws.  The final
piece is the keystone at the top of the center dome.

Photography was not allowed inside the open-sided structure.
This is a sample, taken from long-distance of the intricacy of the carving.
