Trip to Mahabalipuram

We (Sejuti, Runai and I) started early morning 5:00 AM on 17-May-2014. Got in the car and headed straight toward Hosur road. At 8:00 AM, we stopped in Kamat (back of Reliance Petrol Bunk) for breakfast. Next we know that we crossed Krishnagiri, Velor and road gave us smooth ride. We stopped before Kanchipuram and took a break with tea and coffee. Next we turned on our navigation because we knew we had to take diversion and go inside the Kanchipuram and take route to Mahabalipuram. While Runai was guiding me, I was following her direction. Once we reached Kanchipuram, we thought to visit temple here. We parked our car and walked in Ekambareswarar Temple.

We visited the place and spent some time there. After freshen up, we started again and this time we didn't stop anywhere and went straight to Mahabalipuram. We searched for Silversands Beach Resort in navigation and found the place. It is 2 km away from Mahabalipuram in Chennai Direction in ECR road.

As we reached there at 2:30 PM, we parked our car and went in. We were greeted well and given our room. It was a very nice well decorated place. After freshen up, we came out and headed toward town. Please remember that once you pay for the town ticket, you can use it for whole day. So we showed the ticket which we paid at the time of entering the town and went in and stopped near Gazebo restaurant wich is just next to the bus stop. We had rice plus chicken, fish and squid curry. It was very nice and tasty. Next we returned back hotel and spent whole evening in the beach of the resort. It was a lovely time and specially when you walk for hours in the sandy untouched beach for hours till sun goes down. Evening we went again inside the city for dinner. We got in a departmental store and got some snacks and lots of water bottle. Evening was usually chatting and enjoying the place and resort.
18-May-2014, we got out of our room at 10:00 AM. We know it was little late for sight seeing and its quite hot outside.
First we stopped at Tiger Headed Rock Cut Temple and Rock Cut Siva Temple.

Next we went to Mukunda Nayanar Temple.

From there we went to Shore Temple.

Next we went to the museum, but it was closed in the afternoon, so we went ahead and stopped near Mahishasura Mardini Cave. Next we climbed the temple. It was the only place where you get a 360 degree view of the entire place. Beside it was the light house.

Next we went ahead and parked for Five Rathas. We were very tired and it was too hot to do anything outside.

Next we know is that we don't want to go any other place other than our hotel. We came back and didn't think of anything else other than lunch with rice, dal and roti. We spend rest of the day inside the room. Evening we went to the city and got dinner parceled from same place behind the water tank.
19-May-2014, we checkout from the place and started at 10:00 AM. We got some cash and went to a nearby hotel for breakfast and lunch after Krishnagiri Toll gate and back to home at 5:00 PM.
