About the destination: Visit the fascinating Crocodile Bank, experience these gigantic reptiles close at hand, feed them and also witness poison extraction from venomous snakes! Also, within this 2-2.5 hours tour, plan a picnic to the Tiger Cave, a sacred rock-cut Hindu temple near Mahabalipuram. Explore the gardens surrounding the mandapa, as you take a break to spend some quality time with family, friends or other co-travellers.

Starting from Mahabalipuram, anywhere between 8am-3pm, drive down in an auto-rickshaw to the Crocodile Bank, one of the renowned crocodile breeding centres in the world. Spreading over an area of 3.2 hectares and established as a research location for the study of crocodiles, the bank is housing more than 2,400 crocodiles of 14 different species. Spend around 1-1.5 hours learning about the different stages of their breeding and also visit the snake breeding and poison extraction centre within the bank. The poison extracted here is sent worldwide for medicinal research and use.

The Tigers Cave is situated at Salurankuppam,at around 5km from Mahabalipuram. It got its name from the numerous tiger head carvings at its entrance. On the way to the temple, enjoy a revitalizing tender coconut drink. Dedicated to Goddess Durga, this mandapa is surrounded by scenic gardens and serves as a popular picnic spot. Explore the vicinity for around 30 minutes and with the completion of your visit, depart the temple site and get dropped back at Mahabalipuram.
