the monolith stone work made in the 7th century. These were re-discovered by the british explolers . this was under the sand that was cleared . According to the local guide this was a pallava style work which was incomplete as you can see on the left some of the work is not done. There is Bhagirath penance , the fat cat in the bottom pretending to do penenace and eating all the mice near the elephant .The sear breeze is eroding some of the statues and since its a UN site there are some conservation activities taken by them eveny year .
