The monuments and temples in India abound with exquisite sculptures based on the epics. This is a humble attempt to explain some of them. This is no scholarly work. I have only collected these from several sources- oral, printed and on-line. There can be no authentic version of such stories as there are many variations and interpretations. I have left out the complex explanations and debates to just give an overview of episodes depicted in stone.
