Mahabalipuram


Mahabalipuram, a UNESCO World Heritage Site known for its exuberant group of sanctuaries, founded by the Pallava kings, was carved out of rock along the Coromandel Coast in the 7th and 8th centuries. It is known especially for its rathas-temples in the form of chariots, mandapas – cave sanctuaries, giant open-air reliefs such as the famous ‘Descent of the Ganges’, and the temple of Rivage, with thousands of sculptures to the glory of Shiva. It is so fascinating to see structures so old, surviving innumerable natural and man-made calamities and still have power to leave you impressed.

I like to believe I have a fine taste and a palate for luxury. For me sipping a hot ginger tea in a quaint café on a mountain hill is as luxurious as a hot tub bath in tower suite. Come read on and explore with me, my idea of luxury. Read about best hotels, designers, food and beauty. While I am the one creating content on here, don't forget to stop by the in-conversation page, where I have some really interesting people share about their work and life. Hope you enjoy my page, I have created it with a lot of passion and keep coming back, there is always some freshly brewed content here.
