Krishna’s Butterball Mahabalipuram is an inquisitive vacation destination in Mahabalipuram, a town around 60 km south of Chennai well-known for its stone carvings. The “roly-poly” is a giant self-balancing rock, 5 meters in breadth, rooted on a smooth slant, apparently opposing all laws of material science and physics.
In Hindu mythology Lord Krishna had an unquenchable hunger for margarine or butter, and as a kid, would regularly sneak a handful from his mother’s spread container. Arranged on a slope slant close to the Ganesh Ratha this gigantic common rock stone is credited to a bolus of margarine the adolescent Krishna would take.
The rock’s clumsy position makes it very prevalent with locals and sightseers indistinguishable as it makes for a fascinating background for some wacky photos. It’s a typical sight to see guests setting hands under the stone posturing for pictures, which looks just as they are holding it up. The rock gives welcome shade in the event that you set out to sit underneath it, and also provides an excellent slide to slip-off for children playing around.
Mahabalipuram is an antiquated notable town declared as UNESCO World Heritage Site and was a busy seaport amid the time of Periplus (first century CE) and Ptolemy (140 CE). Aged Indian brokers who went to nations of South East Asia cruised from the seaport of Mahabalipuram. Today’s Mahabalipuram is absolutely a visitor town and one of the significant attractions around Chennai. Other attractions include rock carvings, sanctuaries, hole havens, huge outdoors reliefs, for example, the acclaimed ‘Plunge of the Ganges’, and the sanctuary of Rivage, with a huge number of figures to the greatness of Shiva.
