I recently visited Mahabalipuram when on a visit to Chennai and was very impressed with all the monuments there. Krishna's Butter Ball was amazing as were the Pancha Rathas and Shore Temple. Near the Shore Temple, the guide we hired showed us a small temple of sorts that was said to have emerged following the tsunami! The detailed carvings in the complex were indeed impressive. Definitely worth a day trip from Chennai and easily doable.
