The boar or Image of Varaha is opposite the Lakshama Temple. It sits in what is known as the Varaha temple. The image is created out of polished stone and is supposed to be Vishnu?s incarnation. The body of the beast is covered in small features, both divine and human. Varaha is the preserver who apparently saved the earth from prehistoric floods.
