Mahabalipuram, Tamil Nadu 603104, India
Surf & StoneAncient temples, surfers, sea breezes and giant grassy lawns. The shore temple, a UNESCO World Heritage site, attracts locals, tourists and music and dance festivals throughout the year. A great place for kids to play, watch the surfers just beyond the fence and buy seashells plucked freshly from the sea beyond. Walk about the temple ruins, run in the grassy lawn and retire back to town for lunch and shopping.
