How these columns were made to such great degree of perfection when wood shaping machineries were not in existence is a testimony to the skills of the artisans who made these columns. These Corinthian style columns were copy of the original columns from Rome. The set consists of highly carved crown, a long solid pillars and a base carved from hard stones.
