The 8 hour time is utilized effectively, we had a chance to see the Boat House Club and ZOO park, apparently the place is also too good we had enjoyed to the the fullest as per our expectations, initially we were worried about the time, but it seems fine. The Mahabalipuram is the best place for anyone who wants to visit
