About Arjuna's Penance

This marvel sculptured in rock is located at Mamallapuram, 58 km from Chennai, the capital of Tamil Nadu in Southern India. Approximately 96ft long and 43 ft high, carved in mid seventh century on the face of two enormous adjacent boulders, this is one of the biggest open-air rock sculptures in the world.

Mamallapuram, once the ancient port of the Pallava dynasty who traded with countries of the far east, is now world famous for the splendid 7th and 8th century art and architecture of the period. Its monolithic rock sculptures, carvings, shore temple and wonderful beaches make the place a beautiful tourist destination.
