An Introduction

Mamallapuram (Mahabalipuram) – offers a unique combination of a superb group of monuments and several fine beach resorts. This seaport was built by Mahendra Varman of the Pallava dynasty during the 17th century who has given to the world the unique monuments of sculptural panels, monolithic panels, structural architecture and cave temples. The monuments here are hewn out of solid rocks. The Pallava chisels here have breathed life into stones and emphasize the blending of mythological episodes, epic battles, demons, men and animals, creating a pleasing harmony. The most important of these architectural relics are the Five Rathas (chariots), the shore temple, Arjuna’s penance and the Mahishasuramardhini cave.

Kanchipuram – the temple town of Kanchipuram is one of the seven sacred cities of India. It is also called the 'Golden City of Temples'. Of the original 1,000 temples, there are about 200 left. Once a proud capital of the Pal lavas from the 6th to 8th centuries during which time the best temples were built, it later became the citadel of the Cholas, the Vijayanagar kings, the Muslims and the British. The remains of a few Buddhist 'Stupa' here also bear testimony that Buddhism also prevailed here for a little while. It has been a centre of Tamil learning and culture for centuries and gives us a clear picture of the glorious Dravidian heritage of the Vaishnavites and Shaivites. Kanchipuram is also the home of the co-operative societies of silk industry.
