Thumbnails - Mamallapuram, 2010

Following the Habitat build we spent two days in Mamallapuram, a seaside town about 60km south of Chennai. Mamallapuram has a nice beach, many ancient temples and a crocodile farm. It is a popular tourist destination because of the many ancient temples, the beach and its proximity to Chennai.
