    Mahabalipuram.......Ancient temple / Sea Port town in South India(Tamil Nadu). It is known especially for its rathas (temples in the form of chariots), mandapas (cave sanctuaries), giant open-air reliefs such as the famous 'Descent of the Ganges', and the temple of Rivage, with thousands of sculptures to the glory of Shiva. It is on the World Heritage List.

    Beluru and Halebidu :

    The Hoysala temple towns of Belur and Halebid, with some of the most magnificent temples in India. What the Parthenon is to Greece and the pyramids to Egypt, the Hoysala temples are to South Indian architecture. Belur and Halebid are 17 km apart, but they have always been referred to in one breath, as belonging together. Yet, upon visiting them, the tourist realises that the two, though built by the same school (Jakkanna Achari is credited as the architect), are quite different in appearance.
