Discovery Video: The Lost Temples Of India

The Lost Temples Of India
The Mysteries of Asia three-part video series was originally produced for the Discovery Learning Channel. During this segment, historians and others examine temples built in India more than 1,000 years ago. They remain quite intriguing, though today's tourists rarely visit them. Records reveal that trained elephants had to drag millions of stone blocks to help erect these structures.

The program notes that due to the temples' size, the U.S. Senate, Versailles, the Houses of Parliament, and St. Paul's Basilica in Rome could all fit within a single one of them. Michael Bell narrates the footage and animated maps were used to help viewers learn more about what these ancient structures look like and why they were built.

The Video is not perfect and has it's own flaws. But it must be said that the cinematography in “The Lost Temples of India” is quite good — there are some beautiful shots of the temples in question. And there are actually a couple of facts in the documentary, though they’re carefully hidden (“shrouded”) by the steaming Orientalist cheesefest.
