Mahabs is just 50 kilometers south of the metropolis of Chennai, the Capital of Tamilnadu, India, location of an International Airport. Visitors from all over the world flock here to Mamallapuram to see the world ...More famous 7th Century Pallava Dynasty Cave temples, including Arjuna's Penance and the often photographed Shore Temple, all Unesco World Heritage recognized monuments. When in Mammalapuram consider Lutz Guest House and Sonny's Restaurant as your first destination for budget lodging and food. We are located directly on the beach north of the Shore Temple and face into the constant sea breeze blowing off the Bay of Bengal. Less
