Embark on a spectacular walk through some of historic landscapes in search of the richest stories from our past. This 7th Century historical town will give you the oldest existing remains of Dravidian architecture. They are constituted by cave temples, monolithic chariots, sculpted reliefs and structural temples.
Our representative cum guide will meet you at your hotel and the History walk begins to the famous UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Arjuna’s Penance: Nothing can prepare you for the wonderful bas-reliefs covering two huge boulders. The exquisite detail, dating from the 7th century, depicts the flow of the Ganges down from the Himalayan mountains as well as scenes from Indian daily life.
The Five Rathas: You won't believe that these shrines are carved whole from an outcrop of rock. Each of the five temples is dedicated to heroes from the great epic of the Mahabharata. Spend time admiring the detail of the carvings which include Gods, humans and elephants and wonder why the temples are incomplete and were never consecrated.
Shore Temple: Relish the delightful seaside location, overlooking the Bay of Bengal, and landscaped gardens surrounding the temple, a popular place for the locals to visit. Dedicated to both Vishnu and Shiva, the decorative beauty of the temple, built in Dravidian style, has suffered erosion by its proximity to the sea.
