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 to go to Muttukadu and see DakshinaChitra Museum, which is approximately 38 minutes away. There's much more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Sea Shore Temple, steep yourself in history at Krishna Mandapam, Head underground at Mahishasuramardini Cave, and look for all kinds of wild species at The Madras Crocodile Bank Trust and Centre for Herpetology.
