    Hi, I am travelling first time to Mahabalipuram from bangalore and want to book this hotel. How far it is from the seashore temple(btw is that worth a visit?) and other monuments ?

    The temple is not that far, however, the beach is quite a walk and disappointing. I would also look into a different hotel....
