    Very nice tour of stone and bronze gallery. Mr. Vijay was our guide. He explained the background history and various interesting aspects about the exhibits. Time well spent.

    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

    If you know who St. Thomas is, or even if you don't, this is a must see historical site. It is the start of Christianity in India, the first melting pot in the world. One of the original 12-Apostles, the significance of this site can't be missed.

    Our curation was with Vijay and we had a great time. What we thought initially was ample time for a tour turned out to be way too little! He was very well read and we could tell that he brought in multiple sources to draw a story. We also liked the way Vijay adjusted what to say to us (i.e., explaining the story behind the statue/ iconography). He really explained the value of learning more about our culture and how these bronze statues shed light into the stories we’ve heard of.
