This was the main kalan at My Son and was dedicated to Bhadresvara - the reincarnation of Shiva with King Bhadravaram who built the first temple here in the 4th century. Today, only the 11th century base remains after several earlier periods of building and destruction. Placed in the middle is a Shiva lingam - the lingam sits within a yoni and water poured over the top would be channeled out the groove in the yoni symbolizing creation.
