Description

After pick-up from your hotel at 8am, ride from Chennai to Mahabalipuram (Mamallapuram). On arrival, visit the Shore Temple, which sits by the sea shore of the Bay of Bengal. Built with blocks of granite from the 8th century AD, the temple is one of the oldest rock-cut wonders, a structural magnificence of South India, and listed among the UNESCO World Heritage sites. Next, head to the Arjuna’s Penance, a giant bas-relief from the 7th century. This magnificent monolith was carved in the mid-7th century. It’s one of the most famous rock carvings in Mahabalipuram and among the biggest open-air rock canvases in the world. On its surface are renditions of animals, birds, beasts, Gods, and Goddesses depicting stories from Indian lore. Visit the Panch Pandava Rathas, which is a monument complex dating back to the 7th century. With monolithic rock-cut architecture representing the diversity of Dravidian architecture, each of these temple sculptures are carved out of a whole rock in the shape of pagodas. After sightseeing, the afternoon time is free for you to use at your leisure, and you can go to the beach and relax. Later in the evening, explore the town of Mahabalipuram, where you can watch how the soapstone workers carve out beautiful designs out of the stones with their chisel and hammer. Your tour ends with a ride back to your Chennai hotel. Arrive at your hotel around 4 pm.
