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.
Shop till you drop at Apollo Books and Little Art Gallery. Get out of town with these interesting Mahabalipuram side-trips: Kanchipuram (Ekambareshvara Temple, Thennanagur Perumaal Temple, & more) and Adi Kesava Perumal Temple (in Sriperumbudur). The adventure continues: take in the spiritual surroundings of Sea Shore Temple, kick back and relax at Covelong Beach, stroll through Mahabalipuram Beach, and make a trip to Arjuna's Penance.

To see reviews, photos, where to stay, and other tourist information, refer to the Mahabalipuram online vacation planner .

If you are flying in from Algeria, the closest major airport is Chennai International Airport. In August, plan for daily highs up to 41°C, and evening lows to 29°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 16th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
