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.
Take a break from Mahabalipuram with a short trip to DakshinaChitra Museum in Muttukadu, about 38 minutes away. There's lots more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Sea Shore Temple, admire the striking features of Mahishasuramardhini Mandapa, delve into the distant past at Raya Gopura, and Head underground at Mahishasuramardini Cave.
