The Marvelous structures...

The Sreekrishnaswamy Temple at Ambalapuzha is of architectural importance as there are numerous marvelous works by our ancestors.  Decades back when the technology was not this much developed, wooden carvings and other such hand made structures were used extensively for buildings.  We can witness many such wonders in and around this temple.  The temple complex itself is a vast built up area with many buildings, balconies, and other structures.  The Natakasala, meaning Drama Theatre, itself is a marvel. Built mainly out of wood and stone, we can find out intricately hand carved pieces of art built into this building.
 
The wooden rods used to hold together the roof railings are intricately carved into a screw like design.  It seems that this wooden rod is screwed in through the other railings which are also made out of wood.
The accuracy with which this is made is amazing.  In this technically advanced era also, these hand made pieces amaze us and leave us wonderstruck.

This is only a part of the marvelous work done by our ancestors.  We can only imagine about the perfection of their calculation and execution.
