Overall Guide : Thirukadalmallai is an outstanding temple that is related to Lord Vishnu. The Pallavas constructed this structure to protect the sculptures from the ocean waves. It is regarded that after this structure was constructed, the other structures were not harmed by... more the ocean. Pancha Pandava Rathas is a sculpture of five chariots that have been carved from one rock. These sculptures have been created in the 7th century and can be found in the southern part of Mamallapuram. Huge stone animals have been carved from the rocks. The Shore Temple is a very popular tourist attraction in Mamallapuram. This marvelous temple is situated between two Shiva temples and is admired for the architectural masterpieces. There are elegant sculptures of Lord Vishnu and of Nandi the bull. There exists a Varaha Cave that exhibits two incarnations of Lord Vishnu. These are Varaha or the boar and Vamana or the dwarf. These can be seen in a rock-cut hall. There is another cave called as the Dharmaraja Cave. This has three empty shrines. Some other caves at this place are called as the Tiger Cave and the Mahisasurmardini Cave. Krishna’s Butterball is a natural rock of a huge size that is balanced on the hillside. The risky way by which the rock is balanced is a surprise for all.
