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.
Family-friendly places like The Madras Crocodile Bank Trust and Centre for Herpetology and Covelong Beach will thrill your kids. When in Mahabalipuram, make a side trip to see DakshinaChitra Museum in Muttukadu, approximately 38 minutes away. There's much more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Sea Shore Temple, contemplate the long history of Descent Of The Ganges, don't miss a visit to Pancha Rathas, and delve into the distant past at Monuments at Mahabalipuram.
