  • These pillars have stood there long enough.. They've witnessed history..

    Celebration, pillage, war, victory, festivals - they've seen them all..

    They've seen kingdoms rise and fall..

    They don't see much grandeur now.. They see tourists who wander.. They know people like me who touch and hug them.. Wind that echoes through the hall.. A sunrise that teases the browns till they turn red.. And a sunset that plays games with light and shadows..

    500 years is a long time..
