  1. Two versions exist on what the mural represents – Arjunas penance or Bagirathas penance

  2. Mahabalipuram.
    The origin of the sculpture is the controversy. It is called Arjuna’s penance. But people believe it could be Bhagiratha.

  3. This is the famous bas releif commmonly known as Arjuna’s penance at Mammallapuram.
    I dunnno if it can be called a `controversy’ exactly but some junta say that the niche/cleft etc one sees on the left depicts the fall of the Ganga, that the chappie doing said penance is Bhagiratha and so the releif should be called Bhagiratha’s penance.
