OUR TRIP TO MAHABALIPURAM - 29 OCT 2006

Our kids, Medha and Chaitanya, had come down to visit us in Chennai from Canada in December 2006. Narsim, (now)Medha's husband had also come down from the US. We had a good time together. On 29 Dec 2006, we had made a trip to the Crocodile Park and Mahabalipuram. These are some of the photographs that were clicked by Narsim. The photographs bring out the majestic beauty of the sculptures at Mahabalipuram. I will be writing about them in due course. Chaitanya, The Elephant, Medha & Narsim

Mahabalipuram is a treasure house of ancient Tamil art, culture, civilization, & history. A coastal city, Mahabalipuram has an immense place of importance in Tamil history and mythology. This beautiful coastal city of Tamil Nadu is ordained with a number of temples and places of archeological importance. It is not surprising therefore, that because of the overabundance of these places Mahabalipuram is often referred to as a legacy in stone. The unique instances of art, culture and architecture that has been preserved by the kings of the then Pallava dynasty proves to be a delight to the eye even today and it is not for nothing that Mahabalipuram is known as an “open air museum”. The richness of Mahabalipuram has made it one of the most favorite tourist places of South India. Hotels in Mahabalipuram are for tourists from different walks of life. As the place is more of a tourist destination rather than a business one, there are many leisure hotels and budget hotels in Mahabalipuram.
