Mahabalipuram lies on the Coromandel Coast which faces the Bay of Bengal. This is an elegant place to watch which a well established sea port was during the 7th and 10th centuries of the Pallava dynasty. This was the second capital of the Pallavas who ruled Kanchipuram.
The Mamallpuram beach adds beauty to the pallava constructions. There are green and lush casuarinas groves which add further colour to the surroundings. The sunrise and sunset looks exuberant and tourists will surely enjoy the ambiance.
