    Noboremasu on the rocks, it is responsibility. Foot care! If an is great! Note that it is. Shoes have been shoes, NG is on a rainy day. Sculpture and views so you recommend it is.

    These caves are at a height. These are beautiful with the carvings on all of them. Its very close to the light house too if you want to have the city view from the top.  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.
