Group of Monuments at Mahabalipuram



The group of monuments at Mahabalipuram, also known as the City of Bali, was founded by the Pallava kings during 7th and 8th centuries along the Coromandel Coast. It is located 59 km away from Chennai. It was designated as World Heritage Site in 1984. It is well known for its rathas and the temple of Rivage with thousand of sculptures of Lord Shiva.
Mahabalipuram highlights about forty monuments including the largest open-air bas-relief in the world. Along with a structural temple, a palace in ruins can also be seen. The Shore Temple and the Temple of Sthalasayana Perumal are perhaps the finest of all. The 'Tigers Cave' is also quite popular.
