Spectacular view from the top

The lighthouse is one of the main attractions in Mahabalipuram. You can climb to the top of the light house using the stairs inside. The steps are narrow and steep and more than 100 in number. It's a fun attraction and once you reach the top, the view is spectacular. Breezy with view of the sea and Chennai city far away.

To Guide The Ship

As this was an ancient Port of Pallavas Dynasty, for trading. It was built by British in 1894 as it was considered of necessity to guide the ship's, by light beams. It is a circular tower, and still in good condition. This attraction need little time, one must appreciate the construction and the structure.

An exotic view, a must go place

I live in Chennai, I keep on visiting Mahabalipuram on frequent basis. Though Mahabalipuram has lot of places to watch or visit, but among all this is my favourite one. Best time to visit is sunset time, you can feel the cool breeze, amazing beach view. Rs 10 nominal ticket is there to go on top, once you reach the it's more than worth. They will allow you to stand for hardly 15 mins, but heart want to stay there for long time. Amazing place to visit!

Fresh air and relax

Wow a very attractive place in Chennai. I loved it, the place is just 2 hours travel from Chennai. Everything there seemed to be a very good place to get fresh air and give relaxation to us!
