Visit Mahabalipuram (Mamallapuram) &
Madras Crocodile Bank Trust
Thursday, July 28, 2011
In the morning slightly after breakfast time we took our driver Jayakumar and headed east on Tamil Nadu State Highway 58 toward Mahabalipuram (via Thirukalukundrum). It took us about 45 minutes to arrive at the location of Pancha Ratha (Five Chariots). We spent sometime there and then headed to the Arjuna's Thapa (Arjuna's Penance) after looking around that area we headed to the Mahabalipuram beach and the Shore temple. We took some pictures and bought some souvenirs.
We had our lunch that we had brought with us. Soon we headed toward Chennai (Northward) on the East Coast Road and arrived at the Madras Crocodile Bank Trust within few 30 minutes. We spent about 1 1/2 looking around the place and donated money for the development and research of the bank.
Then late in the afternoon we headed back to Chengalpattu retracing the same path but without any stops.
