Krishna Mandapam Reviews
A ve nearer to Krishna mandapam Lord sri sthalasayana perumal temple Historical temple in Mamallapuram Hindu worship temple
Krishna's Mandap or Krishna Mandapam is the first UNESCO heritage site (out of three in a row) which was constructed in two different periods. The inner carving depicts lord Krishna playing melodious sound on hia flute while people engaged in their daily chores are sent into a hypnotic trance because of it. The carvings depict the locals, nobles and animals of those times. The outer mandapam was constructed later on in 7th or 9th century to protect the carvings on the inside. The lions with a human face particularly depict that trade was already established with Egyptian Civilization much before than earlier thought and the concept of Sphinx was very well known back then.... Hire a guide, its must; as although it looks like simple carvings however they reveal interesting information about the era in which it was carved.
