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.
Kick off your visit on the 24th (Sat): explore the ancient world of Monuments at Mahabalipuram, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Sea Shore Temple, then look for all kinds of wild species at The Madras Crocodile Bank Trust and Centre for Herpetology, and finally admire the striking features of Mahishasuramardhini Mandapa. On the 25th (Sun), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: make a trip to Krishna's Butter Ball, make a trip to Arjuna's Penance, then take in the spiritual surroundings of Varaha Cave Temple, then admire the striking features of Pancha Rathas, and finally explore the fascinating underground world of Mahishasuramardini Cave.
