Gargoyles (spouts) of Ancient Hindu Temples

This is a collection of waterspouts in ancient Hindu temples all over South East Asia. These spouts have a valuable purpose: they drain rainwater from the roof safely so that the water doesn’t damage the temple walls. These are popularly known as Gargoyles in the European countries, where these spouts are designed as grotesque hybrid creatures. In ancient Hindu temples you can see a creative variety of spouts, and I have only visited a small percentage of thousands of such temples.
