MAHABALIPURAM

Draupadi Ratha:

This, measuring 14 by 11 by 14 feet, is a plain, tiny-looking hut-like monolith, north of Arjuna Ratha. Above the entrance and the niches on the three walls we find Makara Toranas (arch ornaments showing heads of the heraldic shark). The back wall contains a relief of Durga with attendants and worshippers.

Sahadeva Ratha:

This (18 by 11 by 16 feet) stands to the southwest of Arjuna Ratha and has the peculiar shape of a horseshoe at the back. Consequently, the roof has also a semicircular end. But the font of the roof is waggon-shaped like Bhima Ratha.
