It was amazing that these monuments were buried under sand for hundreds of years and only excavated 200 years ago by the British. These granite sculptures were not completed after the death of Narasimhavarman I in the late 7th century and are not known to have any religious significance according to the guide. It was hot as it was summer when we visited and there is no shade.

This is best place to see the single rock architecture with the best sculptures on it.

Every thing seems to be in life .

The place quit and good to recall the old things.
