Shiva Sanctum, Trimurti Cave, Mahabalipuram (23)

Posted by Chennai City (Chennai, India) on 13 August 2013 in Architecture and Portfolio.

Name: Shiva Sanctum, 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.

The cave temple is dedicated to Trimurties of Hindu pantheon - Lord Brahma, Lord Vishnu and Lord Shiva. The middle shrine or sanctum or chamber is dedicated to Lord Shiva and there is the Shiva Linga installed in front of panel. The panel at this chamber shows Lord Shiva with four arms, holding an axe and chakra. He is flanked with two attendents on ground, one with folded hands and another offering a flower.
