I went to Mahablaipuram, Chennai, to visit its stones and temples there. In order to know this place in depth, we hired a tour guide to explain to us.
He said he is a sculpture artist. The tourist guides are not recognized by the Indian Government.
Mahablaipuram used to be an entre port, even now, it still exports stones and sculptures overseas. Indeed, different cultures can be spotted from the existing sculptures. Like China / Rome/ India / Egypt lions.
He said, his wife, children make him happy. Some alcohol, cigarettes, or female friends will make him happy too.
