:: Mahabalipuram ::

Mamallapuram or Mahabalipuram, a town panchayat now, 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. It has various historic monuments built largely between the 7th and the 9th century, and has been classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

One of them is The Shore Temple....
The Shore Temple - a structural temple along the Bay of Bengal with the entrance from the western side away from the sea. When lit by moonlight, it is one of the most beautiful locations in the region. The best time to visit is November to March.
