Panch Rathas Temple, Mahabalipuram

Featured in this video is the Pancha Rathas (five chariots), located at Mahabalipuram in Tamilnadu, India. It is an example of monolith Indian rock-cut architecture dating from the late 7th century.

Mahabalipuram is a UNESCO World Heritage site known for many breathtaking monuments with Sculptural Panels, Caves, Monolithic Rathas (chariots) and Temples.

The Panch Rathas shrines constructed during the reign of King Mahendravarman I and his son Narasimhavarman I were named after the Pandavas (Yudhishthira, Bhima, Arjuna, Nakula and Sahadeva). The temple sites have been preserved very well and are visited by a large number of tourists every year.
