"Adiyamankottai, Chenraya Perumal temple - 2nd gallery from south [17th Century]"

The gallery adjacent north to the south extreme or the gallery - II have the murals depicting Mahabharata, an Indian epic especially the roaming of Pandavas in the forest. The five Pandava brothers had fled to the forest with their mother, Kunti. They lived there by begging, and went about in disguise giving themselves out as Brâhmana students. Many were the hardships and adventures they encountered in the wild forests, but their fortitude of mind, and strength, and valour made them conquer all dangers.
