Name: Gopi's Churn, Trimurti Cave Temple, Mahabalipuram
Location: 1.5 kms from bus stand, Mahabalipuram. , Located in the same 'park' area as Krishna's Butterball and the Arjuna Penance carvings. It is located slightly away from the Krishna's butter ball. Hence it is easy to access and the entry is free to all.
Popularity: In spite of its popularity by its name, it is less visited by visitors.
Gopi's Churn: The Hindu mythological name Gopi's churn refers to the episode of Lord Krishna and the cow herding girls (Gopikas) using vessel for churning butter. Gopi's churn is the large circular cistern neatly scooped out of a large boulder located in front of the Trimurti Cave. However the external portion of this circular cistern is left unfinished and the cistern appear like the rock boulder. The top of the cistern can be accessed through four stone steps and viewed. The cistern would have been utilized to store water for purposes of ritual ceremonies .
