Notes on the Geography of Peninsular India: Kanchipuram: Vaikuntha Perumal Temple: Photo 5
We've stepped through those wooden doors and are looking at the inside face of the temple wall. Over 500 sculpted panels, most is very poor condition, illustrate the history of the Pallava Dynasty. Those in the distance here tell the history of Nandivarma II, but most of the panels, which were carved in place, have never in modern times been explicated. The first and last person in the last hundred years to take a stab at it was Cadambi Minakshi in the 1930s; see her Historical Sculptures of the Vaikuntha Perumal Temple, Kanchi, 1941.
