The miniature shrine near Shore Temple

The Miniature Shrine stands adjacent to the Shore Temple at Mahaballipuram. The shrine that carries an image of Bhuvaraha was unearthed only in 1990. The structure is believed to date back to the Pallava Dynasty and is said to have been constructed during the reign of King Narasimhavarman Mamalla. Interestingly, Mahaballipuram is named after him.
