Krishna's Butter Ball

Mahabalipuram is a place known for its natural rock formations and this is also one of those. This is a very interesting formation and is a huge balancing rock. The name is such because it seems like a dollop of butter. According to legends and tales, the baby Lord Krishna had an ever lasting quench for butter. For this he would often steal from his mother's kitchen and this rock also seems to be one of those dollops which he would have stolen during his childhood. This place is never very crowded and the shady rock is ideal for an afternoon nap or as a background for some interesting clicks.
