Mysterious Butterball

Krishna’s Butterball . A geological curiosity

This delicately balanced boulder in the historical town of Mamallapuram [Mahabalipuram] is popularly referred as ‘Krishna’s Butterball’. It is about 6m long and 5 mtrs high and believed to weigh 250 tonnes. It is a major tourist attraction and a geological enigma.

From Pallava period onwards, several attempts have been made to move this boulder but all have been unsuccessful.

I was inspired to post this from my archives after being prompted by recent Facebook post of the Butterball at nighttime by Navneeth clicks.
