MAMALLAPURAM PHOTOS

Image ID: 4326151

Caption : A series of elegant sculptures, carved on boulders, have loomed into view on the beach at Mamallapuram, about 50 km from Chennai. These are a few hundred metres from the SHORE Temple. Prominent among the sculptures are lions, associated with the Pallava rulers who executed the unparalleled works of architecture. Belonging to the seventh and eighth century A.D., these sculptures became visible after the tsunami struck the Mamallapuram coast and the SHORE Temple on December 26, 2004. Prior to that these boulders had been buried with the crown of one of them with a cut-in miniature shrine, measuring about one square foot, with a carving inside, visible. Fishermen used to offer prayers to this carving. The sculptures which have now shot into view include seated lions, an elephant, a horse, miniature cut-in shrines, warriors, "bootha ganas" and so on. Lions are predominant among the sculptures. On other low-slung boulders, steps and miniature "tanks" to hold water have been chiselled out. A structure at the ground level has also come to light. It consists of a fallen outer prakara (wall) and an inner prakara. Photo: A. Muralitharan 11-02-2005
