Architectural wonders and the Stone Henges


The Gandhi Memorial building in Kanyakumari of India is uniquely designed. Inside it each year on the birthday of Mahatma Gandhiji (October 2nd) sunrays fall on the place where his ashes were kept (for immersion in the seas) through a hole on the roof! Likewise sunlight also enters into the inner sanctum sanctorum of a Pillaiyar (Elephant -faced God) temple at Uppur of South Tamilnadu on the east coast (near Rameshwaram). It happens only at certain festival day!
These are architectural WONDERS like that of the Stone Henges!
