Mahabalipuram Attractions: What to do & Places to Visit in Mahabalipuram
"The place is in pretty good shape. The area around the temple is surrounded with lots of shops and beach stalls and is very dirty, but the temple premises itself is very clean. We got there early in the hopes of getting some photographs at sunrise. The site is supposed to open at 6AM, but the person..." selling he tickets got there 15 minutes late. Note that they do not allow the use of tripods without prior permission. Parking is quite disorganized though. Ticket bought here is also valid for entrance to the nearby "Pancha Pandava Rathas" site if used on the same day.

"This small collection of rock carvings are located in the same 'park' area as Krishna's Butterball and the Arjuna Penance carvings and so is easily accessed and viewed in a small area which is all free. They are dedicated to three Hindu gods and as there are a number of sights in the vicinity are wo..."rth seeing. It amazes you that such beautiful sculpturing from the 7th century is still intact and so impressive well over a 1,300 years later. It's a small sight but worth a visit.

"Surfing was one of the finest experiences i had. It is exhilarating especially if you manage to stand on the board on your very first day. Mumu is a great coach and has good equipment. But, be sure to go in the morning to avoid the heavy duty sun or else you would end up looking like tandoori chicke..."n. Mumu charges 1000 for private lessons and 750 in group for 90 min. A must go if you plan to visit mahabalipuram
