MahabhaliPuram: Tourist Hot Spot or Chennaites Chilling point

Tamilnadu is best known for the hospitality shown towards, by every individual. This tendency of the people has made people visiting Tamilnadu more comfortable and secured. The people are sentimental and lone to be kind and generous. There are many qualities to speak about this state and its people. Tamilnadu has its own history right from the past. Tamil is one of the ancient languages. Tamil is also the source for the others neighboring Dravidian languages such as Kannada, Telugu, Malayalam and Thulu.

There are many beautiful sceneries, ancient monuments, historic temples for their unique sculptures, the culture and tradition of the natives and so on.
One such place to be watched, toward and enjoyed is mahabalipuram. This is a magnificent tourist place. Welcome to mahabalipuram, a legacy in stone.

How did Mahabalipuram get its name:

The former name of this place ‘Mahabalipuram’ has a history. A very rude cruel king Mahabali reined this place and in a fierce battle king Mahabali was killed by Lord Vishnu and the place was named after the dead, arrogant kind Mahabali.

What is special about mahabalipuram?

Yes indeed, every one knows that: the rock - cut caves, temples made from a single rock, temples and strives of different structures, and bas-reliefs which are so artistic and sheer creativity. Mamallpuram is referred as an ‘open-air museum’. The great pallava kings Narasimha I and Rajasimha have well preserved these stylistic qualities that one enjoys in mahabalipuram even in the present day.

How Mahabalipuram called in the recent years by the Chennaitez:

Mahabz!!!! well short form of Mahabalipuram..now that you all know the history about Mahabalipuram, you should also know the present trend prevailing about Mahabz.
Mahabz had always been a wonderful spot & drive for Chennaitez. Its some where about 43 kms away from Chennai though , you wont find it too far as the drive will ride your attention by its view points on the way.

East Coast road or shortly called ECR road, road lies adjacent to beach, so u feel like you are racing with the waves. More than you find most of the top rated cars driven inside the city limit you will find those cars on the ECR highway as the roads are fantastic as well as hardly any traffic.

Previously there were too many spots where the clubfreaks jammed, but with the recent copz stricting the movement on every Saturday nitez, these house parties have been conpletely shut.

Spot 1 :Pretty close to the Mahabz, on the left side of the road you find the Tiger caves.(Pictures attached ) 

You get it Couples!!thats the place for ya'll, uknawamsaying where there nobody to disturb you. The Area is vast, clean nad perfect, unlike the crowded city of Chennai, thats spot number 1
Trust me this is the place you had always WANTED

Spot 2: Inside 

Mahabz, there is one special street(OOthavadi Street, Flooded with lots Foreigners at all times, throughout the year). This street ends at the beach. Thats spot 2
There are four to five quality restaurants very much close to beach. You get to booze, eat awesome sea food, ( tawa Prawn, hmmm Mouth watering)my all time favourite...My advice to you will be to visit MOONRAKERS(REstaurant on the same street on right side)

. Hey out of all the restaurants on this street you get the best Tawa PRAWNS and TAWA Chicken in this restaurant but sad part it ain't next to the beach. Still you can compromise that for the good food you find there.

About safety: People in the place are very friendly, but its always good to stay away safe from strangers.

If in case you have more money you can also spend your time at GRT( Five star rated Resort).

Rooms are also availabale here at quite fair price( AC and Non AC) will range from 700 to 1200 rs.

As already mentioned Mahabalipuram is specially for Sculptures so anywhere and everywhere in there you will find shops where in the people designing sculptures

Hope you had fun reading this, I have tried my best to bring all possible facts and theories about Mahabz compressed in this post, hope this helps, if not and if more info is required post in here...
