Mahabalipuram

Once an important sea port city in the ancient Pallava kingdom, Mahabalipuram today draws in visitors with UNESCO-listed monuments and temples carved out of rock during the 7th and 8th centuries CE.
Step out of Mahabalipuram with an excursion to Laurel Shopping Mall in Chengalpattu--about 48 minutes away. The adventure continues: kick back and relax at Wide Beach, delve into the distant past at Sea Shore Temple, make a trip to Krishna's Butter Ball, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Group of Monuments at Mahabalipuram.

In August, daytime highs in Mahabalipuram are 40°C, while nighttime lows are 29°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 17th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
