We ended up in Mahabalipuram accidentally on a beach trip. Providentially it was an interesting place. The beach was rough and unsafe. But Allie loved the horse ride a lot there.
We shopped for shells, stone necklaces, mirror with shells. It was fun bargaining. But my favorite was the sculpture work of the Pallava dynasty in Mahabalipuram.
On the whole a guided tour was fun fun fun.
