Mahaballipuram is a delight

THE PICTURE ON THE HEADER above is part of a delightful relief to be found in the rocks at Mahaballipuram. It’s not far from Chennai (Madras).

Just a short walk away from here is the so-called “Sea Temple” – the dreadful tsunami a few years back revealed that there are many more temples under the waves.

Here’s the full pic of the Mahaballipuram relief, if you’re interested.  I particularly like the expressions on the faces of the elephants, as they nurture the elephant calf below.
