Lost?: "Lost Temples of India", an amazing documentary.

Who said these are lost? I found them with no difficulty
---------- Forwarded message ----------

South India has the largest temple complexes ever built.
In "Lost Temples of India", a Discovery Channel Documentary, historians examine these 1,000-year-old temples adorned with intricate and beautiful sculptures.
We learn how the kings used large herds of trained elephants to drag the millions of stone blocks into place and how these temples are virtually unknown and unvisited by Western tourists. Truth or fiction, the stories of Mysteries of Asia will amaze and delight.
The program notes that due to the temples' size, the U.S. Senate, Palace of Versailles, the Houses of Parliament, and St. Paul's Basilica in Rome could all fit within a single one of them.
Michael Bell narrates as footage and animated maps are used to help viewers learn more about what these ancient structures look like and why they were built.
India is a sub-continent steeped in ancient cultures, religions, and buildings.
In this intriguing program, we are transported to this exotic land and examine the mysteries behind some of the most fascinating structures found here.
Please take time to view all six parts - It will amaze you and the grandeur will continue to delight you for the rest of your life.
