mahabalipuram or malallapuram

beautiful gopuram of the temple.
sealed temple, mamalla puram
the temple. now it is closed. no daily puja or any thing is conducted here.
Pancha Rathas (Five Chariots) – five monolithic pyramidal structures named after the Pandavas (Arjuna, Bhima, Yudhishtra, Nakula and Sahadeva) and Draupadi. Despite their sizes they are not assembled — each of these is carved from one single large piece of stone.

the prakara is sooo small. a view from one point along the prakaram.
during the rule of the pallavas, great poets, dramatists, artists, artisans, scholars and saints emerged.
the pallavas are the pioneers and forerunners of new styles both in art and architecture.
this whole temple is built on a single stone, including the diety – ganesh. wow.
