Type of View:
South gallery, east wing, Three Worlds frieze; dead marching to the court of Yama in lower register, the path to hell
Date of View:
In the east wing of the south gallery a frieze 66 m long shows the dead marching to the court of Yama, the god of death, and their subsequent sojourns in heaven and hell (with earth, the three worlds). Those on the path to hell are emaciated, pitiful figures driven violently by servants of hell through a forest full of ferocious wild beasts.
