[| tag] for the gallery[edit]

Hi, Is there a limit to the size of gallery online? Does it do anything more than render more thumb images on web browser? Is there a standard that a gallery should not have more than so many images regardless of anything else? I am sure it is not like a book that consumes paper/wood and it is not difficult to go though more images in a gallery unless people are extremely lazy even to browse through images online.

This is because of repeated addition of tags [| here] making this look like some kind of unexpected 'virtual-long' gallery. ..असक्तः सततं कार्य कर्म समाचर | असक्तः हि आचरन् कर्म.. Humour Thisthat2011 22:11, 2 June 2011 (UTC)

Images removed without looking at significance[edit]

Hi, why are images removed ad-hoc here?

  1. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Halebidu - proposed UNESCO heritage site, dating back to the 1121 C.E.
  2. Meenakshi Amman Temple - dates back to 7th century CE.
  3. Pancha_Rathas - Pancha_Rathas#As_UNESCO_World_Heritage_site
  4. Kamakshi_Amman_Temple - dates back to 6th century CE
  5. Akshardham_(Delhi) - Akshardham_(Delhi)#Guinness_World_Record

One should not just delete everything based on number game. ..असक्तः सततं कार्य कर्म समाचर | असक्तः हि आचरन् कर्म.. Humour Thisthat2011 22:24, 2 June 2011 (UTC)

Please read WP:IG. Wikipedia articles are not a repositories for images. You need to go to flickr for that, or create a commons gallery which you can link from this article. Feature articles do not have long galleries.
As for "significance", this is not even asserted. If they are that significant AND relevant to specific parts of the article's text then they can be placed into the text with very specific listing. --Merbabu (talk) 08:17, 3 June 2011 (UTC)
How are the images a random collection? How is significance not asserted?
I have made a point to include link to architecture of each temple as it is on corresponding page.
How is this article a Featured article?
There is [| this edit] that removed a pic of Ellora Caves, another UNESCO World Heritage Centre that is absent now. Is there a standard that says anything on such and such ie removing UNESCO World Heritage Centres from the gallery? ..असक्तः सततं कार्य कर्म समाचर | असक्तः हि आचरन् कर्म..

This article does not need an image of every great Hindu temple. It needs specific images that illustrate specific architecture features. IMO, an example (restricting to 4-5 image gallery) would be in a section about South Indian temple architecture (currently does not exist, but should):
The gallery have only 1 image about a specific feature like only 1 image about temple tank. No more images that have a temple tank.

If that is so then there is no point deleting the whole image gallery. Every image in the gallery has something unique and anyways people are free to delete repeating features. ..असक्तः सततं कार्य कर्म समाचर | असक्तः हि आचरन् कर्म.. Humour Thisthat2011 14:02, 4 June 2011 (UTC)

Reverting [version] by user:Merbabu[edit]

Hi, why is this version reverted with a comment like 'yukk' and so on! I can not see anything but a whole lot of ignorance as a justification to revert everything! ..असक्तः सततं कार्य कर्म समाचर | असक्तः हि आचरन् कर्म.. Humour Thisthat2011 13:58, 4 June 2011 (UTC)

early design of Temple door way which may link to other designs found in india, Ruins of ambh-sharif temple can we use it?[edit]

I fully agree with the editor of this page that he or she cannot place every temple image on here, but at the same time i would wish for him or her to maybe add a image of this temple door way.http://www.pakviewz.com/ancient-temple-ambh-sharif/92.236.96.38 (talk) 09:13, 2 December 2014 (UTC)Caplock
