Mahabalipuram temples are typically carvings made of single rock / small hill. This makes it unique than the regular temples. You could notice how they start breaking the rocks (by making dotted lines / boxes and then run it with water & so on). Special attraction would be the Arjuna penance, Five rathas & the shore temple. At Arjuna penance, just try to imagine how they would have carved all those sculptures from top to bottom. I am sure, one would appreciate the efforts then.
Try spending time in the early morning itself (before noon), to beat the heat.
