  • Krishna with his left arm extended upwards and the palm of his hand facing the sky protects the entire village, the gopes and the cows from a terrible storm. So you see daily life flowing normally so that everyone is quiet and careless of what is being unleashed above their heads thanks to the grandiose and effective protection of Krishna.

  • Very good historical to place. This place has very old temple at the sea shore and some caves/art created in the single stones..
  • This a hall carved with beautiful sculptures. Closed structure. Built by Pallava Kings. Even Though there are several cave temples in the area this is worth visit as you can see the original carved stone wall on which there are many carvings. The wall carvings are well worth seeing.  Some later time a stone canopy supported by carved pillars has been added. You can see the difference between the original pillar and the added pillars.
