Arjuna's Penance is a carved rock relief, which dates to the 7th century and is one of the largest reliefs in the world. It stands 29 meters long and seven meters high and represents scenes from the Hindu epic story of the Mahabharata. The rock surface is covered in carved animals, people and gods and forms part of the UNESCO World Heritage listing for the Monuments of Mahabalipuram.
The Shore Temple is believed to be the sole remaining temple from an ancient complex of seven temples which were known as the Seven Pagodas. The Shore Temple was built in the 7th century and is one of the oldest south Indian temples of Dravidian architectural style and is covered in intricate carvings.
Because the temple stands so close to the sea, it has suffered centuries of corrosion from the sea-spray. Attempts to preserve it for the future led to the building of breakwaters and barriers.
The Short Temple is included in the UNESCO World Heritage listing for the monuments of Mahabalipuram.
Marina Beach in Chennai is the world's second longest urban beach with only Copacabana in Brasil beating it for length. This 12 km stretch of broad sandy beach is a magnet to tourists and local people alike, as well as supporting a local fishing trade. The beach is up to 437 m wide at its widest point.
The northernmost tip of the beach is near Fort St George and the southern point is Besant Negar. Bathing is illegal on the beach due to strong currents and in 2007 an average of 4 people per day died in the waters which are not patrolled by lifeguards. Many statues decorate the beach including Mahatma Gandhi and Annie Besant. 206 people died on Marina Beach during the tsunami of 2004.
