Mahabalipuram: Graceful Sentries

These sculpted figures adorn one side of the temple wall, one guy even has his hand resting on an animal that kinda looks like a lion. 

There's some sort of a pattern here, the guy with the beast must be a figure of authority. Flanking him are two couples and then a solitary figure. They are so slender and graceful... they seem like a calm and beautiful race. (Click on the pictures to enlarge them)
