Description: This image, done in stone on the outer wall of the temple at Srirangam, is a good copy of the chief image of Vishnu in the central shrine of the temple. Vishnu is shown lying on the coils of the serpent Sesha, resting on the primeval waters at the time of creation. From his navel of lotus issues Braham, the creator who fashioned the present universe.
