Mahabalipuram, India - 1

  1. Hi,

    Am posting some of my images taken couple of years back.

    A li'l bit of history...

    The temples of Mahabalipuram, built largely during the reigns of Pallava dynasty (630 AD), showcase the movement from rock-cut architecture to structural buildings.

    Globally renown for its shore temples, Mahabalipuram was the second capital of the Pallava kings of Kanchipuram. 58 kilometres from Madras (Chennai) on the Bay of Bengal, this tiny sea - side village of Mahabalipuram, is set in a boulder - strewn landscape.
