Would this chariot have ever moved? It looks so heavy! The wheel seems to be made of marble! If it did move, how many people were needed to drag it?

@CElliottUK: As you rightly said it is made of marble. This model has been stationary and never moved.
However, this is a replica of the temple chariot ( temple car) of Thiruvarur, well known for a festival where the chariot on wheels is actually pulled by huge number of people( in hundreds) - The thing to note here is the co-ordination involved amongst the people in getting this mega structure moving!!
