The specific textures used on the temple are taken from these: ... abu-02.jpg ... abu-04.jpg ... abu-05.jpg ... abu-09.jpg ... abu-07.jpg ... abu-13.jpg ... abu-19.jpg ... abu-20.jpg ... abu-27.jpg ... abu-06.jpg ... abu-22.jpg

This list is missing a couple of images, which is distressing. I'll try to find them...
