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.
Start off your visit on the 21st (Sat): delve into the distant past at Monuments at Mahabalipuram and then take in the spiritual surroundings of Sea Shore Temple. On your second day here, look for all kinds of wild species at The Madras Crocodile Bank Trust and Centre for Herpetology, admire the striking features of Pancha Rathas, then don't miss a visit to Arjuna's Penance, and finally explore the ancient world of Raya Gopura.
