55 km south of Chennai is one of India’s most impressive temple complexes, Mahabalipuram. Mahabalipuram is a UNESCO World Heritage site dating back to the 7th and 8th Centuries with over 400 monuments and temples. The most famous of these are the seven pyramidal temples on the coast known as the ‘Shore Temples’. Mahabalipuram is believed to have once been a major sea port with trading links to ancient Greece and Rome extending far beyond what now remains. Divers have discovered more temples and other structures submerged beneath the sea suggesting that the area was once home to a very sizeable settlement.
