„Shrine on the beach“

from the gallery of Marjolein Katsma
Description:

On the beach of Mamallapuram, a natural rock has been turned into a shrine for the Lord Shiva.

Interestingly, the side of the rock facing the beach (from where people approach) depicts the bull Nandi, while from the side facing the sea a little altar has been hewn, with a ledge and a niche, flanked by two almost-eroded figures. Inside the niche is the Lord Shiva dancing the Tandava, directly facing the rising sun.
