May be one of you can shed light on some
of the archeological excavations done in Srirangam
in mid 1970's. I was there in 1977 and took some
pictures of an small pit dug up to reveal the
foundation of one of the mantapams, in the
main prakaram, close to the large Garuda profiled
in stone. Below the floor level, is an intircate
carving of the profile of a large elephant. The pit
had been dug up to show the complete profile,, about
12 feet deep. 
Did they do further exploration?
