Hinduism - Who Was Rajasimhavarman Of The Pallava Dynasty?

 


Rajasimhavarman (8th c.) was a Pallava dynasty ruler who, like his forefathers, was a great supporter of the arts.

During his reign, the last of the spectacular coastal temples erected on the Bay of Bengal, Mahabalipuram in Tamil Nadu, was completed.

The god Shiva was the temple's main deity, but a secondary shrine also housed an image of the god Vishnu.

Despite the fact that these temples have been battered by time and the elements, they remain among the most popular tourist destinations in southern India.
