Art forms and Indian classical dances are the major features of the festival. If you happen to be an admirer of performing art, you would not want to miss this great event that is held only once every year. Owing to the exquisite beauty of South India, you are bound to have experience unforgettable evenings that never cease to amaze the tourists who visit the place. You will get a chance to witness the alluring classical dances with a tinge of contemporaneity.
Besides the dance festival, the old city of Mamallapuram is momentous on its own terms. The shore temple, which is located at a distance of 58 kilometres from Chennai, the capital city of Tamil Nadu, captivates tourists who visit the state from different parts of the country and the world to revel in the dance festival.
The temple is distinguished for its striking architectural charm, with colossal rock sculptures. The ancient town has been transformed into a delightful tourist destination with the fusion of the ancient 7th and 8th century Pallava temples, carvings and fabulous beaches.
While the Indian classical dance guild arrives to Mamallapuram during this time to watch the bewitching performances, the festival is also a chief tourist destination as it also includes visitors from across the globe who visit the city to get a taste of the ancient Hindu traditions and culture.
Like most Indian festivals, the Mahabalipuram dance festival is also lively. It exhibits classical music and dance forms, which have been upheld over the generations. Gear yourself up for the festival as you make a plan for your tour to India.
