"Two Hindu temples too became the object of their iconoclastic furies. The temples were built by an Indian colony settled in the Canton of Jaron on the upper Euphrates. The Indians had built two temples with the images of deities 18 and 22 feet high. St. Gregory the Illuminator (240-332 AD) destroyed them in 304 AD, according to the Syrian writer, Zenob."
