That can't be right. This architecture dates from the middle ages. It can't be older than 10th-11th century. Even that may be pushing it. The gold plating is probably even more recent. Maybe 16th century or later.

Edit: According to wiki the structure was rebuilt and renovated many times, the last one being quite recent. Stupas ("pagodas") were being built 2500 years ago (and quite large ones too), but they didn't look like this at all.

hindus commit suicide by throwing themselves under "juggernaut" idols, being crushed to death. they also set fire to widows in a ceremony called "sati," burning them to death.
