One of our favorite day trips when we were in Chennai, India, a few years ago was to visit Mahabalipuram. Mahabalipuram is an ancient historic town with beautiful monuments and temples that has made it a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Along the way we stopped at DakshinaChitra, which is a museum and heritage village depicting the culture and heritage of South India. We also stopped at Tiger Cave, a site that we didn’t know what to expect to see since our guide didn’t tell us anything about it other than its name. After a long day of touring monuments and temples, we stopped at a Radisson Resort to enjoy a nice meal at their restaurant while watching the waves break on the beach.
