If you are in Mahabalipuram for a leisurely trip or if you are in Mahabalipuram as an earnest explorer, you can visit this attraction if you keep walking south from the Varaha cave. It is usually secluded since this is not a well-known attraction, and...More

This is an unfinished monument tried by Vijayanagara kings. Only base is prepared. Similar one exists opposite to Sthala sayanna temple in bus stand. You can imagine any Gopuram in Hampi, to visualise how it would have looked if completed.

This is a huge temple tower in front of the temple carved out of stone. Nice to visits in the mornings.

Yet another of the Pallava monuments scattered all over Mamallapuram hill, this temple is different- not a Rathas or a mandapams. Unfortunately, no signage explaining its significance or history, but good views over Mamallapuram and some lovely carvings.

We just started up the hill from the left side of the panch pandav cave and found some stares carved out of the stones and reached this place, which was above average in my opinion but it sure felt old.

UnFinished but well done Rayar work for their Port entry. But not maintained properly. No sign boards except guide direction
