The five rathas are old yet sturdy structures, UNESCO world heritage sites and certainly a peep into history. These magnificent rathas are an awesome attraction at Mahabalipuram. The carvings and the monolithic structures are something you will really appreciate. Guides are available but personally, I look up to Google to read more before I visit an attraction like this. Don't miss this one when in Mahabalipuram.

If you are someone who is interested in History, then surely you will love it. Try to visit it in the morning hours and later proceed to sea shore temple. Sea shore temple looks great in the evening view.

Everybody took a photo on top of the cow statue on the back of the center shrine. It is really beautiful, you can easily stay 1/2 looking into the details.Saturdays and Sundays: full of people unless early.
