India: Excavation In Mahabalipuram

Don't get me wrong, I didn't go to India for the second time. The recent Discovery of Four-Thousand-Year-Old Pyramid in Cairo, Egypt made me write about this post. I have never seen excavation in my life before. So this is something rare to me.

We saw this near to a tourism attraction spot whereby a base with huge rock was unearthed. According to what was told by the local, it was a temple and there were wordings written on that rock. The occasional tsunami that happened at Bay of Bengal could be the reason why it was buried underneath the land.

The whole area was surrounded by fence and photography is strictly prohibited. We already took a couple of pictures by the time we saw the signboard and the uncle in dhoti tried to admonish and stop us.

I should see the Great Pyramids of Giza and Stonehenge with my own eyes, one day.

P/s: Sometimes, I think TheStar is just plain stupid with the ads that never fails to annoy me.

Mahabalipuram is a treasure house of ancient Tamil art, culture, civilization, & history. A coastal city, Mahabalipuram has an immense place of importance in Tamil history and mythology. This beautiful coastal city of Tamil Nadu is ordained with a number of temples and places of archeological importance. It is not surprising therefore, that because of the overabundance of these places Mahabalipuram is often referred to as a legacy in stone. The unique instances of art, culture and architecture that has been preserved by the kings of the then Pallava dynasty proves to be a delight to the eye even today and it is not for nothing that Mahabalipuram is known as an “open air museum”. The richness of Mahabalipuram has made it one of the most favorite tourist places of South India. Hotels in Mahabalipuram are for tourists from different walks of life. As the place is more of a tourist destination rather than a business one, there are many leisure hotels and budget hotels in Mahabalipuram.
