  • 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...
