Mamallapuram is just 14 km from my brother, Nellai's place, Tirupporur. Both of us are early risers and, at every opportunity, we go to Mamallapuram in the early mornings to enjoy sea breeze and feast our eyes on the wonderful statues of yore as well as the present, lying along the streets.
Yes, Mamallapuram is full of sculptors, bringing life to images hidden in stones. As I went along a road full of sculptures lying about for sale and sculptors chiseling stones, I came across this statue of Lord Buddha, whom I always love. I clicked it with my Canon Powershot A590 IS digital camera.
