the stone carvers at mamallapuram

You hear their tink-tink-tinking before you see them. The streets are lined with small shops and when you peek inside, you see men hunched intently over their work, dust hanging in the air. The craftsmanship of the stone carvers at Mamallapuram, a sea-side town an hour down the road from Chennai, is intricate, beautiful and inspiring.
