Hallo Vpas
My friend has a guesthouse on the north side beach of the temple. Now in August and September the water comes very close to the guesthouses. Some erosion has happened. Now in beginning of October there is a beach like 2o m again. But this was not before in the last years. No body knows what has happened. So I want to ask people who know the place what they think about or know.
greetings

Hi Lentas,
Sorry I don't know about this recent phenomenon.But I do know that the archeological department is trying to save the shore temple by piling huge rocks to save the sea from submerging the temple.It is believed that there were seven such temples in the past and they submerged into the sea in course of time.
Apart from the shore temple,you could also visit other temples and caves which are interesting.There is also a sculpture college and artists all over working on sculptures.It is a good place to shop for soveniers.
there is also a light house.there are resorts,but not very great.on the way to mahabalipuram from the city of chennai,you would find many beaches which are not at all crowded.There is also a very beautiful ancient temple called Varahaswamy temple/nithya kalyanaswami temple in Thiruporur.It is amidst simple,but beautiful surroundings and is one of my favourite temples.
There is also a crocodile bank/park on the way and you get to see hundreds of crocodiles and alligators.You can also feed them if you ask in advance aboout this package.You can find this on the net if you google search,crocodile bank,near chennai.
Hope this helps,
Vpas

Travel Tips for Mamallapuram

Macro view of the 5 Rathas

by bradbeaman

This is the picture you are going to end up with of the 5 Rathas (stone carved chariots) if you are a foreigner and too cheap to pay the 250 Rupees to go in and get a closer look. On the plus side you can use the money you saved to buy lunch at an upscale place.

Here is where you will find the elephant, nandi and lion stone carvings.

Pancha Pandava

by Canadienne

A mile south of the main section of Mamallapuram, there is another group of rock-cut temples called the Pancha Pandava. Constructed in the 7th and 8th centuries, four of the temples are carved from a single boulder.

There is also a giant lion and elephant.

This site is pay entry ~ higher for foreigners than for Indians ($5 US if I recall correctly, but think of all the good your money will do).

Homage to the Elephant

by NedHopkins

Though I knew from reading that the Asian elephant is smaller than its African cousin, I was surprised by how much smaller. (And also, as I mention in a Jaipur page, how uncomfortable riding the beast is.)

Still, the Asian elephant has been a vital part of South and Southeast Asian economies since the earliest times. It's relatively easily trained to serve in transportation and various work functions.

It's fitting that, in the Rathas (five brothers from the Mahabarata) temple complex, ancient Hindu priests paid homage to the elephant in this granite representation that has stood for many centuries and, I hope, will stand for many more.

The Drapaudi Ratha

by cadzand

The first temple (left) on the picture is the Drapaudi Ratha. The goddess Durga decorates the outside and inside of the shrine. Even the fertility emblems guarding the doorway are aspects of the Goddess.

Sculpture Museum

by Willettsworld

This museum is located near the bus stand and exhibits sculptures and fragments excavated from the area as well as over 3,000 sculptures from local artisans who work with stone, wood, metal and even cement.

Open: 9am-5.30pm.
