  • It is a surprise to see this rock...everytime you may feel that it is just to slide down but it is there from years. Good place but guides take over price (1200 INR ) for five places of Mahabalipuram....  more

  • Visited this place at Mahabalipuram. The place is situated at the heart of the city and is a archaeological site having many attractions along with the butter ball. There other caves and monolithic temples and Rath in the same premises. The place is well maintained and really kept very clean by the local administration. Also the light house in the same premise is must visit place to climb upon enjoy the scenic view of the place and the coastline. The ticket charges are 40 per person in which u can visit all the archaeological site in the city. Be aware of the monkeys there.
  • It's one of the nature's mistry. The massive stone standing on a sloped rock with minimum support at the base. Perfect example of super natural things in this world even the science cannot answer. For someone it looked like Krishna's butter ball. Nice thinking!! Must visit place for all ages. Nice place for selfies and photography!!!!!
