Know More about this tour

After pickup at your Chennai hotel at 8am, travel with your guide in a private air-conditioned car with driver to Mamallapuram. At the Pancha Rathas (also known as the Five Rathas), your guide explains the rock-cut temples before moving on to Arjuna's Penance, home of one of the world's largest bas-reliefs. Here, your guide points out details of the huge whale-shaped rock which has been intricately carved with figures of gods, demigods, men, beasts, and birds creating a scene which some say represents creation.

At 12:30pm, stop for lunch at a restaurant of your choice (additional cost) then, around 1pm, proceed toMahishasuramardhini Mandapa (also known as the Cave Temple or Yampuri). Next, visit the Krishna's Butterball, a precariously balanced rock on a slope near the Ganesh Ratha.

Around 5:30pm, relax in your private car to return to your hotel in Chennai (Madras) arriving around 4pm.
