  • This is an operational temple around caves and carvings. Small yet well maintained with a pujari, aarti and prasadam in the evening.  more »
  • This temple is shape in form of chariot. Temple is more than 1000 year old. But God idol is 100 year old reform by villagers. There are other heritage monuments near bye.  more »

Where to stay in Mahabalipuram

Given the importance of its major attractions, Mahabalipuram offers a good number of accommodations across its main urban area. Thanks to the popularity of its coast, it has a large number of accommodations by the beach, too. Choose between the backpacker-friendly area around Othavadai Street, where budget hostels and boutiques provide the main options, and the massive resorts along the beach. Alternatively, Chennai lies just two hours away by bus, so many travelers choose to stay in the large city to the north and simply take day trips Mahabalipuram.
