DHARMAPURI

Varaha Cave (33 feet by 14 feet by 12 feet). This is a cave shrine with an attractive frontage facing west. Here the Varaha and Trivikrama incarnations of Vishnu have been sculptured in an impressive manner. At the Chalukyan capital Vatapi (Badami) which was conquered by Narasimha Varman, we find similar monuments but the workmanship there is rather crude and immature.

Further magnificent relief representing Surya, Durga, Gajalakshmi (Goddess of Wealth accompanied by elephants) and two groups which represent the kings Simha Vishnu and Mahendra Varman with their queens may also be seen here.
