Calm soothing serene

Mahabalipuram is an ancient developed town by Pallavas dynasty , located in the Kancheepuram district of Tamilnadu.

The beauty of this destination lies in its sea shore. If you are a nature lover and sea or beaches crave your holiday moods, then it's a must visit.
The right time is to go from October to March, so that you can avoid the extreme sunstroke conditions.

The sea shore temples, Pancha Rathas, Thirukadalmallai- The temple dedicated to Lord Vishnu , Varaha Cave Temple – a small rock-cut temple dating back to the 7th century, The Shore Temple and Light House- built in 1894, are surely to be paid a visit.

The great thing about this town is it's mixed culture which includes the local people and the foreigners from round the world, be it American, Mexican or French, they all live in harmony despite of the cultural differences.

The town is famous for sea foods, from tiger prawns to tuna fishes, Squids, lobsters, crabs and many more amazing dishes that are sure gonna take away your taste buds to a different horizon, if you are a die hard non vegetarian and fish lover especially. There are many continental food outlets like French and Italian which are famous for their their specialised menus.

For shopping sprees, the streets are full of various boutiques and outlets with the modest skirts, tops, beach wears, dungaree, harem pants and you will also notice beautiful handmade loafers and foot wears. I will recommend to design your own style of chappal and order it, because I had bought myself two pairs of daily wear comfortable slippers for on and off purposes and that too with genuine leathers and materials. It's hand made and the best part is the cost is very genuine and economical. Other that that, Jute bags, tote bags, and marble en crafted souvenirs like show pieces are best buy if you want to take back the memories of this place.

We went for the Sunrise and Sunset and its very serene. The beauty of the nature cannot be described. So the best thing is to capture them if you want to see them forever.

It's been a very calm and exotic weekend and that too on the eve of Valentines day. So my overall experience was Just WOW! I really haven't expected that the personified beauty of Mahabalipuram will make me mesmerised to this extent that I would actually advise couples to pay a visit to this place once.

Do keep your sunglasses, slippers and cameras. And yeah enjoy it to the core with your loved ones!

Fantastic place with awesome sea

Fantastic. We visited Mahabalipuram with our family. We stayed at mamalla inn. Good restaurants, bus stand, beach at nearby. Sea was awesome. But don't try to take a sea Bath. It is dangerous. We saw the sunrise. It was mind blowing. Food is also cheap. There are many shops room by Rajasthanies.
