Mahabalipuram is an absolute delight for history lovers. Mahabalipuram, also known as Mamallapuram, is a town in Kancheepuram district in Tamil Nadu, India. MAMALLAPURAM as it is  originally called is great tourist spot is famous all over the world for its Shore Temple.
Mamallapuram was the second capital and sea port of the Pallava kings of Kanchipuram, the first Tamil dynasty of any real consequence to emerge after the fall of the Gupta Empire. The Pallava Kings established themselves as the arbiters and patrons of early Tamil culture between the 5th and 8th centuries AD. Most of the temples and rock carvings here were completed during the reigns of Narasimha Varman I (630 -668 AD) and Narasimha Varman II (700 -728 AD). They are notable for the delightful freshness and simplicity of their folk-art origins, in contrast to the most grandiose monuments built by later larger empires such as the Cholas.
The Shore Temple is a beautiful and romantic one, ravaged by wind and sea. It represents the final phase of the Pallava art and was built in the late 7th century during the reign of Rajasimha
