Tsunami's blessing 02

This town Mamallapuram flourished during the 6-8th centuries AD. It has many refined rock-cut structures including temples and lighthouses. Next to this digging site one can see the majestic seashore temple which has withstood the fury of the sea for 1200 years. Legend says there were six more but they got swallowed by the sea. Now the archeologists are excited and there is a naval expedition as well near the shore. See the next photo as well.
