The outer walls of the temples are in sandstone as this was easier to carve from, but the inner walls are of a much harder stone for support. The blocks of stand stone have holes drilled in them and were tied and dragged by elephants to the various sights. The columns were secured in place by carving out a protruding ball on the base of them and then they were mounted into holes of the foundation stones.
Absolutely fascinating - the carvings are amazing!
