Posted in रामायण - Ramayan

This once used to adorn a Kalingan temple’s wall. What an Incredible depiction of Ramayana scene!! The fascinating sculpture’s construction period may date back to 13th/14th Century Ad i.e. the Eastern Ganga’s ruling period over Odisha. The stone panel shows Lord Ramachandra seating in a Virasana posture on a high mountain peak with arrow & bow in his hands. Hanuman gives ‘Pada Seva’ to his left leg. The lower part of the stone slab depicts Lord Lakshmana sharpening his arrows seating over another stone block. Both Ramachandra and Lakshmana are seated amidst large number of monkey followers (exactly 33 in number). What a classic creation by our great ancestors!!
