Mahabalipuram

Sacred & Religious Sites · Ruins · Landmarks
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. The structures showcase the decoration and form of early Dravidian architecture, and their distinctive designs, striking coloration, and scale still create an evocative atmosphere when studied closely and when seen as a whole. The modern town exists almost solely for tourism, with beach resorts, backpacker hostels, and a wealth of restaurants serving international cuisine, making trips to Mahabalipuram relaxing as well as inspiring. Plan the details of your Mahabalipuram holiday and any onward adventuring with our easy-to-use India trip planner.
