About the Place:

Mahabalipuram is a town in Kancheepuram district in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu, 58 km south of the city of Chennai.

It has a group of sanctuaries carved out of rock in the 7th and 8th centuries: Rathas (temples in the form of chariots), Mandapas (cave sanctuaries), giant open-air rock reliefs such as the famous Descent of the Ganges, and the Shore Temple, with thousands of sculptures to the glory of Shiva. The Group of Monuments at Mahabalipuram has been classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Places of Interest:

Thirukadalmallai, the temple dedicated to Lord Vishnu. It was also built by Pallava King in order to safeguard the sculptures from the ocean.
Descent of the Ganges or Bagirathas Penance a giant open-air rock relief
Varaha Cave Temple a small rock-cut temple dating back to the 7th century.
The Shore Temple a structural temple along the Bay of Bengal with the entrance from the western side away from the sea.
Pancha Rathas(Five Chariots) five monolithic pyramidal structures named after the Pandavas (Arjuna, Bhima, Yudhishtra, Nakula, and Sahadeva) and Draupadi. An interesting aspect of the rathas is that, despite their sizes, they are not assembled each of these is carved from one single large piece of stone.
Light House, built in 1894.
