Trip to Mahabalipuram or Mamallapuram: Chapter 1: The Shore Temple, Mahabalipuram

Rock cut architecture is among the most interesting and innovative aspects of Archaeology. Over time, building styles changed and the integration of structural building took form all over the world. Admirable India gives us a tour of Mahabalipuram, which is a town in the Kancheepuram district in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu. Read more about their trip to Mahabalipuram

So the total distance of Mahabalipuram from Bangalore is about 342 km. We had nice breakfast of Pongal near Hosur. Then, we continued our journey and after about 6 hours we reached Mahabalipuram. Mahabalipuram also known as Mamallapuram is a town in Kanchipuram district in the Indian state of Tami Nadu. Mahabalipuram was a 7th century port city of the South Indian dynasty of the Pallavas around 60 km south from the city of Chennai in Tamil Nadu. It is believed to have been named after the Pallava king Mamalla.
