  • Krishna mandapam and Cave temple! Um The carving that the guide wanted me to to notice for the frst is based on the story of Krishna lifting the Govaradhan hill to protect the cow herds from floods which my grandma used to tell me abt 😂👼 and guides were super cool and narative. Good place to spare some good time..💛
  • Too much of carving about the evlove of human..
  • The largest cave-cut Hindu temple in Mahabalipuram is Krishna Mandapam - it is also one of the oldest structures in Mahabalipuram... Left wall of verandah contains sculptures of wild animals - lions, monkeys. On the right, high on the wall is depiction of Nandi... These depictions belong to the highest achievements of realistic art in Southern India...
  • Finest anicient architectural evedence of mahabalipuram .
  • Finest art and sculpture but its been ignored. .. govt and archaeological dept should take care of it..
