Mamallapuram Part 8: Sculpture Museum

Not many are aware of the fact that there is a Government run Sculpture Museum at Mamallapuram. The sculptures displayed here are mostly carved by students of Government College of architecture and Sculpture which is on the ECR at outskirts of Mamallapuram.
I stepped in with my camera and spent sometime clicking these pictures. I liked the museum.




Though not spectacular (which is natural for anyone coming here after visiting the audacious Pallava Monuments ..!), It has some interesting sculptures and paintings..!







Do set apart an hour at least to visit this place.. Your camera will not mind clicking these..!

  3. In my comment on your previous post I was mentioning all these anonymous artists,so i am glad to see modern students' creations now.
    These sculptures might not be as spectacular as the Pallava's but they are still outstanding!
