Shore Temple

Another UNESCO World Heritage Site, this complex is made up of one large and two small temples. These were built during the the 8th Century AD during the time of King Narasimhavarmana II. This place during that time was an important port and a center for trade and business activities. This is known as the Shore Temple Complex as this is very close to the sea and a part of the coastal area on the banks of the Bay of Bengal. People who visit this place make sure to take a dip in the sea before worshipping here.
The fourth day was spent exploring the 7th century Monuments of Mahabalipuram. These monuments have been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.Our first stop was Shore Temple. The beautiful sculptures are a sight to behold. But it's really hot and sunny, so best to visit the monuments early in the morning. Also, carrying an umbrella really helps.
When in Mahabalipuram, you cannot miss visiting the intricate Shore Temple. It is an architectural beauty standing tall by the beach. This place looks beautiful during sunset which is the perfect time for photography enthusiasts.
