Postcards from Mahabalipuram: Krishna's Butter Ball

Mahabalipuram, situated around 60kms from Chennai was a major seaport during the time of Pallava dynasty. Ancient traders sailed to various countries of South East Asia from this seaport.

Mahabalipuram is a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its brilliant rock-cut monolithic rathas and temples built during by the Pallava's.

One such highlight is Krishna's Butterball.

It is a giant natural rock perched on a hillside. The structure is recalcitrant to the laws of physics.

This is one of my favorite clicks from Mahabalipuram. What do you have to say?
