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.
Attractions like The Madras Crocodile Bank Trust and Centre for Herpetology and Covelong Beach make great kid-friendly stops. Go for a jaunt from Mahabalipuram to Muttukadu to see DakshinaChitra Museum about 38 minutes away. There's still lots to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Sea Shore Temple, make a trip to Pancha Rathas, Head underground at Mahishasuramardini Cave, and steep yourself in history at Krishna Mandapam.

For reviews, where to stay, and other tourist information, go to the Mahabalipuram online trip maker .

August in Mahabalipuram sees daily highs of 41°C and lows of 29°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 11th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
