Here's another one that shouldn't be too hard.

What is the name of this place and where is it?

Bueller? Bueller?

OK... I'll give you a hint. This is one of 108 temples in the complex and is in honor of the Hindu god Vishnu.

I'm guessing it's located at or near the Taj Mahal?

Nope. The Taj Mahal was built as a monument to a Rajah's deceased wife. This place isn't in the same country, though the Taj Mahal is an *amazing* place.

The place pictured was forgotten for many, many years, and very difficult to reach. The country it is in suffered a "cleansing" under a deadly dictator with fanatical followers, and has had a hard time dragging itself into the 20th century because almost everybody with any form of education was killed.

Parts of this complex have been left unrestored to show what a jungle can do to the works of man if left uncorrected. There are some other *amazing* pictures of this place out there. I consider it one of the most beautiful temples in the world.

You are correct, ma'am. Mudbug and/or Barbara, it's your turn.
