About
You can easily spend a full day exploring Kanchipuram and Mamallapuram's marvellous temples, caves and rock carvings. Most were carved from the rock during the 7th-century reign of Pallava king Narasimhavarman I, whose nickname Mamalla (Great Wrestler) gave the town its name. Official Archaeological Survey of India guides can be hired at sites.

We had a the best day - our guide was amazing, so kind and gracious and had our comfort and enjoyment in mind the whole day. All of the details were taken care of an all we had to do was show up and enjoy. The tour guides at the various stops were amazing, the lunch was incredible and all of the sights and history we discovered that day was really amazing. Our host and driver were great.

I would highly recommend this tour and would do it again!
