Our group thoroughly enjoyed the tour of Mammalapuram all because of our highly knowledgeable guide Vijay! Vijay gave us an archaeological and iconographic impression of the amazing monolithic, stone-cut, and structural temples of the Pallavas!!! If you think you know Mammalapuram, think again. Vijay will transform these incredible monuments into a special experience with his in-depth and enthusiastic narrative and points out the finer aspects of this UNESCO world heritage site that is worth the trip.
Thanks Vijay!
The van was very clean and the driver made sure we were safe! Thanks
