Mahabalipuram is one of those places in India where the sea, sand and stone come together to provide the visitor with a singularly captivating experience. Largely known as a place of pilgrimage, the temple town is our window into a by-gone architectural era. However, it is not just the temples and the history associated with them that will charm you. The wading through the sand and the salty sea-laden air stinging your face, the local road-side eateries serving hot idlis and fresh filter coffee – these are integral parts of the Mahabalipuram experience. Located just 58 km from Chennai, it offers a perfect weekend getaway for the heritage enthusiast. A lesser known fact is that the town is located just two hours away by road from Pondicherry and is part of the Kanchipuram-Pondicherry-Mahab + more about Mahabalipuram
