  Gods or devils?
by SirRichard
 
 

As you approach the south entrance you will find the 100 metres causeway before the huge gate.
There you can see 2 rows of statues. On 1 side there are the Gods and on the other the Devils. So which are which, as they seem all the same? Look at their eyes! The almond shaped are gods, the round shaped are devils...

Most of them are replicas, the originals being under restoration now.
