about krishna's butter ball

Exploring the temple town of Mahabalipuram, when you come across a gigantic boulder seemingly sliding off the slope, do not begin to panic and run helter skelter in the opposite direction. Alight not on a flat surface but the slope of a slightly elevated rocky outcrop, the massive boulder, known endearingly as Krishna’s Butter Ball, is something of a marvel given its precarious position and the fact that it hasn't moved in centuries despite determined efforts in the past.

Usually surrounded by a gaggle of tourists attempting to push it, Pallava kings had actually attempted to drag the granite boulder with ropes tied to the back of elephants. Needless to say, the boulder refused to budge even a millimeter.
