Mahabalipuram or Mamallapuram is home to a group of incredibly beautiful monolithic structures that find a mention in the list of the UNESCO World Heritage sites. Famous for its rock-cut caves, stone carvings and temples, Mahabalipuram is located in the Kanchipuram district of Tamil Nadu and lies approximately 60 kilometers south of capital city Chennai.
