Chinese President Xi Jinping and Prime Minister Modi (PM Modi) met in Tamilnadu town Mahabalipuram. During this time, Prime Minister Modi took Chinese President Xi Jinping to many scenic spots in Mahabalipuram. PM Modi told the Chinese President about the South Indian culture of Mahabalipuram and its rich heritage. A picture of the meeting of the two leaders is becoming quite viral.
In this picture, PM Modi and Chinese President Xi Jinping are seen in front of a big stone. Both leaders are standing with their hands up in front of the giant stone. This giant stone rests on a very small area and is dangerously inclined towards the front. It seems that this stone can roll forward at any time with a little stir. But it is said that for the last 1300 years this stone has been lying here.
How does this giant stone last?
It is astonishing to see this giant stone sticking in such a small place. To show this surprise to the Chinese President, Prime Minister Modi took him there. Before this, both of them also took photos and now this photo is viral. This photo is being shared widely on social media. This astonishing giant stone of Mahabalipuram remains in the discussion among the people. The story of this stone is interesting.
People here know this stone named Krishna Butter Ball, which is located in the upper part of a mountainous area of Mahabalipuram. From the looks, it seems that with the slightest vibration, this giant stone can ever slip from the mountain. But this stone has been lying here for the last 1300 years. Many times it was tried to remove it from here due to its leaning forward at dangerous level, but no one got success in it.
Neither the earthquake nor the tsunami rocked the stone
In the last 1300 years, there have been many earthquakes, tsunamis, many times cyclones and other disasters, but this stone has not been affected. In the last 1300 years, the land here moved many times but she could not move this stone from here.
The weight of Krishna butter ball is 250 tons. It is surprising for the people how such a stone weighing so much rests on such a small corner. People come from far and wide to see this. It is one of the main scenic spots in Mahabalipuram. People get photographed here in the same way that PM Modi and Chinese President Xi Jinping have taken.
7 Elephants together could not remove the stone
In 1908, the Governor of Madras, Arthur Lavalle, tried to remove this stone from here. The British government felt that even with a slight stir, this stone could be rolled and fell on the front village. In such a situation there would be loss of life and property. To avoid this, the British government tried to remove it from here.
It is said that seven elephants were planted to remove this stone, but they could not budge the stone. After that, this stone became famous in the area. People started coming from far and wide to see it.
It is not yet known how such a huge stone rests in such a small area.
