Chennai to Pondicherry

We drove from Chennai to Pondicherry stopping at Mahabalipuram. On the way there we saw pelicans.

About that: a UNESCO World Heritage Site noted for its incredible rock formations, temples and carvings. This magnificent area has the largest bas relief, referred to as ‘Arjuna’s Penance’, a 29-metre high site that depicts life-size figures of animals, gods and saints.

We also visited the Five Rathas;

Krishna’s Butterball;

and the Shore Temple.

We wandered around Pondicherry in the afternoon, stopping in the market & to see an elephant at the local temple.

That’s all for now!

    Love the carvings. What a contrast between them and the Butterball.
