A trip to Mahabalipuram

Mahabalipuram, now officially called Mamallapuram is a must place to visit . Its a great surprise when i hear that there were totally 7 temples , out of which only one survived - The shore Temple , which i visited today . All the others are under sea ? What happened to those ? 

Anyways what is left tells the story of Dravidian Architecture . It was a great day , as i got the chance to visit such a beautiful place and also got a chance to take some snaps . Thanks to Satish and his friend . Thanks for calling me for this great trip :)

 a local myth exists, that the god Indra became jealous of this earthly city, and sank the other 6 temples during a great storm, leaving only the Shore Temple above water. Interesting !! 

Some local fishermen have reported seeing some temples glittering beneath the waves when they were fishing ... In brief , this is a great place to visit .
