We had a very positive experience with Loganathan in Mahabalipuram as a family of 5 with small children. We also had 4 other adults in the family party, making it a total group of 9. We found Logu’s information on Trip Advisor. He helped explain the significance of the temples and carvings. Here is his direct contact information.

Good sightseeing if you are interested in old monument, i will not suggest to take a dip in water as water quality seems to be bad. ASI need to maintain the original nature of many temples and educate the people about the purpose of temples and not just the characters of building.
