Mahapallipuram Coast Trip

It’s summer and everyone is talking about holidays… hence i’m feeling jealous… so I was looking through old holiday pics and thought I’d share them…
These were taken at and around Mahapallipuram a coastal town south of Chennai, (South) India. The place is famous for its historic monuments and beautiful beach…

The elephant, figures and the Shore Temple seen in the photos are carved in granite. These were sculpted before the 8th Century AD.

My best memory of this trip was driving there from Chennai (approx 60km) on the back of a motorbike at a speed of 117kmph on a long traffic-free coast road ride (ECR- East Coast Road)…it was an absolutely exhilarating experience, with the wind rushing past your ears that you cant even hear your own voice, eyes watering… An unforgettable day…
