Images from Mahabalipuram, India
Shore Temple - this image shows the general look and architecture of the shore temples, and is included here to illustrate the difference between, and the implied lack of contemporaneity of, these and the structures submerged offshore. These latter structures are very different, being of megalithic proportions and appearance.
Shown here are three dive boats employed in the expedition - relying on the skill and expertise of local craftsmanship was as important here as the use of advanced technology used in other aspects of the mission.
