Ancient Sculptures of Pallava Period, Tamilnadu, India

Updated on August 25, 2007

Pallava Period

Pallavas ruled Tamilnadu from 6th century AD to 9th century AD. Budhism and Jainism were the main religions before this period started fading away during Pallava rule. Hinduism had a great revival during this period. Temples were built using perisheble materials such as wood, bricks in South India before stone became a preferred material during early Pallava period. Art and Architecture were flourishing. Kanchipuram the capital of Pallavas and the port town Mamallapuram still have remains of many of these creations.

This page shows some of the sculptural work of Pallava period found in Mamallapuram and Kailasanathar Temple Kanchipuram.
