An exploration of Shore Temple, a World Heritage Site, allows you to see how a historic trade junction became a place of worship. As you approach this 8th-century temple, notice how the site's outdoor pavilions were carved in granite rock. Dravidian architecture at its best, the shrine serves as both a popular tourist attraction and a major pilgrimage site, known for its many elaborate sculptures depicting various Hindu deities.

  • Good place Lovely place for mind relaxation ..... came for a shoot on LEO DANCE ACADEMY... Nice place we once lost our mobile phone in between the shoot no one will give back anywhere in Our India.. here its totally inverse guards and tour guides were roaming like CCTV we got it back too by a help of guide and a guard man.. I needed to see him again to thank him.. not found around ins the place... lovely maintained no dust no waste papers so clean... Not even a single waste or any substance than those beautiful sand garden was excellent... nothing to say... one doubt is why arjuna was here... no one cleared this... How PM took this much waste bottles and scraps from non human touched beach... Anyhow all went miracle... wish to visit again..
  • Beautiful place. Food plaza nearby. Ticket counter outside the temple. The sea sight is amazing. You can ride a horse and camel on the shore side. Overall a clean and picturesque place.
