Draupadi Ratha Overview
The Draupadi Ratha is located in the complex of Pancha Ratha at Mahabalipuram. If you are a history buff then you might feel thrilled to know that this is a great example of monolithic Indian rock-cut architecture. Draupadi Ratha is built in the form of a traditional South Indian hut.

This chariot has carvings of Goddess Durga sitting on a lotus while a lion stands outside of it as a guard. The entire complex was designated as a UNESCO Heritage Site since the year 1984. The complete chariot is carved out of a long stone of granite. Though this chariot is named after the common spouse of the Pancha Pandavas, Draupadi of Mahabharata, this unfinished structure is dedicated to Goddess Durga.
