Mahabalipuram Pondicherry Part 1
If you have read any one of my previous blogs you would know that I am aiming to visit all the world heritage sites in India as a part of Gounesco challenge and this trip was partly for that.
I have been planning and wanting to visit Pondicherry for quite some time and Ugadi brought with it the chance to realise the vacation, we jumped on the chance and added Mahabalipuram in the mix. You can read more about the history of Mahabalipuram here, but to cut the long words short:
These are an example of rock cut architecture which many would relate to the Ellora caves of Aurangabad. The monuments are scattered around in the city. you can either hire an auto-rickshaw or walk as we did.
Yup i finally wrote the first part of the blog you can have a look here for more info and details along with the expenditure incurred http://unesconus.blogspot.in/2013/04/mahabalipuram-and-pondicherry-part-1.htmlhttps://www.gounesco.com/heritage/proof/mahabalipuram-pondicherry-part-1/https://s3-ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/gounesco.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/07123817/IMG_20130411_120517-1024x768.jpghttps://s3-ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/gounesco.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/07123817/IMG_20130411_120517-150x150.jpgUncategorizedasia,heritage,india,Mahabalipuram,parul sharma,shore,tamilnadu,temple,travel,world heritage travel
