Location: Mamallapuram, India

MapArriving in Chennai I aimed straight for a place called Mamallapuram, located just 2 hours away and having good beaches, food and stuff to do. I arrived and was very pleased. I took a stroll around the beautiful stone carving cut straight out of mountains. The following day after a delightful supper of fresh prawns I started my day with a massage. I had a quick look about the stone carved temples which were pretty amazing. These included apparantly the most accurate carving of an elephant in India - it was very life like. It also had a scene carved into a cliffside which was pretty special.
