Know more about Tamil Nadu on a new programme on NDTV-Hindu on 18th night

So you thought Mahabalipuram is too close to Chennai, too touristy, too done-to-death? Well, think again! Kunal Joseph and Elyse Ahmad discover a host of delights as they travel down the ECR on their Bajaj Discover to reach their destination.

Tender coconut tastes like ambrosia, they break into a Bollywood number in a casuarina grove, they gaze at the still backwaters of Muttukkadu and finally, stop en route at the Tiger Caves.

After re-visiting history at Mamallapuram and shopping there, “the guide” and “his tourist” head to the 17th Century Alamparai ruins.

As Kunal believes “When you discover history, you re-discover yourself”. Catch all this on Bajaj Discover Tamil Nadu on NDTV-HINDU at 8.30 p.m. today.
