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.
Go for a jaunt from Mahabalipuram to Chengalpattu to see Laurel Shopping Mall about 48 minutes away. The adventure continues: delve into the distant past at Sea Shore Temple, make a trip to Krishna's Butter Ball, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Varaha Cave Temple, and contemplate the long history of Krishna Mandapam.

To see where to stay, reviews, traveler tips, and other tourist information, refer to the Mahabalipuram trip planner.

Expect a daytime high around 35°C in November, and nighttime lows around 26°C. You'll set off for home on the 2nd (Sat).
