enormous blocks of stone, and place
them so securely as to defy the wtar
and friction of ages.
How were they brought here by men
who had perhaps few mechanical ap
pliances, nothing but the strength of
their bodies and their faith in then
strange gd ?
The rjee who built this temple are
dust. Even their name ages ago p i -ished
from the earth. Their religion
is vanished. These st nes are the
monument of their indomitable resolu
