Speaking of the Brihadisvara Temple with its 80+ ton capstone:


How did they get it almost 200ft in the air perfectly placed on top of this narrow "pyramid"? The temple in it's entirety is estimated to total 130,000 tons of granite moved over 50 miles with several other blocks weighing upwards of 20 tons and another 80 ton block used as a foundation piece.
