The mysteries of Asia series of three-part video was originally produced for The Learning Channel. During this segment, historians and others examine temples built in India over 1,000 years ago. They remain quite intriguing, though today’s tourists rarely visit. Records reveal that trained elephants had to drag millions of stone blocks to build these structures.

The program notes that due to the size of the temples, the U.S. Senate, Versailles, the Houses of Parliament and St. Paul’s Basilica in Rome, everyone could fit inside one of them.

Michael Bell narrates as animated image maps and are used to help viewers learn more about what these ancient structures appear and why they were built.
