A monument that we remember on Gokulashtami day to celebrate Lord Krishna’s birthday, the Krishna Butter Ball. This is a massive granite rock that resembles a ball made from butter that Krishna loved as a kid. It is so delicately perched up on the base rock that it feels like it could roll off at any time, but it has stood the test of time, having stood there for more than 1300 years! #vaaniraikal #krishna #harekrsna #harekrishna #india #incredibleindia #tourist #mahabalipuram #mammallapuram #chennai #nofilter #ball #granite #rockcut

What you see in front of your eyes is the famous Krishna’s butterball, located in Mahabalipuram, 60 kms away from Chennai and is one of its kinds in the world, weighing almost 250 tons, is 6 meters high and 5 meters wide.

The way this is situated on a slope of just 1.2 meters or approximately 4 feet is baffling and astonishing at the same time.

No better day to upload this picture😉

Happy Krishna Janamashtami to all❤️ Here is a YouTube link that explains more about this phenomenon-

Salt hair, don't care?
Mamallapuram, or Mahabalipuram, is a town, 60 km away from Chennai, on a strip of land between the Bay of Bengal and the Great Salt Lake, in the south Indian state of Tamil Nadu. It’s known for its temples and monuments built by the Pallava dynasty in the 7th and 8th centuries. The seafront Shore Temple comprises 3 ornate granite shrines, and is a testament of opulence that kingdom enjoyed even in those early ages.

Temple Tales #23

Shore Temple, Mahabalipuram, Tamil Nadu

This was one of the first temple I visited in South India. Mahabalipuram was my first introduction to the stone sculpture. I have visited it a few times since but the awe remains the same. It is believed that this temple is a part of series of temples, most of which are submerged under water. Many travelers to India like Marco Polo have written about these seven pagodas. I wish we could take a dive and see them. These temples probably played their role in maritime history, maybe as a navigation tool. Mythology says this was the city of Bali whose splendor was swallowed by the sea. Mahabalipuram is full of architectural gems but shore temple stands out - standing tall next to the sea, as if a door between the earth and the sea.

Presiding Deity - Shiva

Period - Early 8th CE
