Solution

The correct option is A Narasimhavarman I
  • The 'Ratha' cave temples of Mahabalipuram was built by the Pallava king Narsimhavarman I in the 7th and 8th centuries. There are about nine monolithic temples at Mahabalipuram. The monolithic temples are called locally as Ratha (chariot) as they resemble the processional chariots of a temple. The five Rathas, the best of all monolithic temples, are hewn out of a huge boulder.
