In the 7th and 8th centuries, the Pallava kings founded a group of sanctuaries along the Coromandel coast of India. Temples in the form of chariots (rathas), pavilions (mandapas), cave sanctuaries and a giant open-air bas-relief which depicts Indian rock cut sculpture at its very best are among the archaelogiocal gems you will find here. Mamallapuram, the ancient name for the place was derived from the name Mahamalla (mighty wrestler) given to King Narasimhavarman I of the Pallava dynasty for his feats of strength, one of 12 Indian kings who never lost a battle. The Shore temple built during the reign of Narasimhavarman II is believed to be one of the 7 Pagodas mentioned by Marco Polo during his travels. The many legends attached to these monuments are well worth a read. Interestingly, Quanzhou, a prominent port city in Fujian, China has recently unearthed evidence of trade links with Mahabalipuram, dating back to the 7th century. Korean and Tamil cultures are also interlinked, with about 500 words sharing the same pronunciation and meaning. Leaving slippers outside the house, green chillis hung outside to ward off evil spirits, and bowing before elders are some common traditions. Leisure Activities: You can take the cycle trail to explore the sights of this bustling town. Mahabalipuram is known for its myriad, exquisite sculptures, carved out of rock, with just a simple hammer and chisel, which have stood the test of time for centuries. The Panch (5) Rathas, built to resemble pagodas are an exemplary set of rock temples. They are said to depict the Pandava brothers and their queen, Draupadi. The Varaha cave temple is one of the greatest examples of Pallava art, dating back to the 7th century. Its enchanting location has been used for many an advertisement and movie shoot. The ‘Descent of the Ganges’, or ‘Arjuna’s Penance, is an enormous, rock-cut bas-relief, which depicts both of these significant events in Hindu mythology. The Shore Temple made out of granite chunks is another must-see. Alamparai Fort, a long forgotten trading post was constructed during the Mughal reign in 1736. The ‘Little Israel’ fishermen’s colony is the place to explore local life and listen to their tall tales.

The beaches of Kundapur are among the nesting areas of the Olive Ridley and Green Sea Turtles, in India. During the mating season, the female turtles come to shore to lay their eggs in the dead of night. These eggs are prized as a delicacy by the local people, who used to sell them in the open market. Depredations by dogs, crows and other predators, as well as infrastructure development contributed to a slow decrease in the sea turtle population. An 82 foot statue of Anjaneya, commonly known as Hanuman, the monkey god is worth a visit, as is the Kotilingeshwara temple, an ancient Hindu temple dedicated to the god Shiva. Kodi beach, one of the most spectacular in Karnataka is where you can catching amazing sunrises and sunsets. Climb up the winding, spiral staircase to the lantern house to enjoy the panoramic view of the ocean and the town beyond from the lighthouse. Gangoli is situated at the confluence of 5 rivers and the harbour is a busy place where you can interact with the fisherman community. Maravanthe is unique in that the Suparnika river flows on one side of the road, with the beach on the other, the only one of its kind in India. Kollur Mookambika and Murundeshwara temple where you can view the 2nd largest statue of Shiva, are popular pilgrim spots. Boating on the backwaters of Kundapur, visits to a cashewnut, rubber or tile factory are some interesting ways to spend your free time. You can also visit Indian families to exchange views on your cultures and participate in the cultural programs of the local community. Yakshagana, a form of folk-theatre has been practised here for the last 400 years. It is a unique blend of musical tradition, eye-catching costumes and authentic styles of dance, improvised gestures and extempore acting which is typical of this region. Do try not to miss this cultural treat.
