Why is the Question ?

Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chinese President Xi Jinping met for the second informal
summit between them in December 2019. Meeting was held in the coastal town of Mahabalipuram, or Mamallapuram, almost 50 kilometres south of Chennai.

India has chosen Mamallapuram as a symbol of India’s ‘soft power’.
Mamallapuram is an important town of the erstwhile Pallava dynasty that ruled in parts of South India from 275 CE to 897 CE. The city of Mamallapuram was founded by the Pallava king Narasimhavarman I in the 7th century AD. The name Mamallapuram derives from Mamallan, or “great warrior”, a title by which the Pallava King Narasimhavarman I was known.
It is renowned for its marvellous monolithic rock-cut structures, widely admired across the world. Mamallapuram and the Pallava dynasty are also historically relevant, for the earliest recorded security pact between China and India (in the early 8th century) that involved a Pallava king (Rajasimhan, or Narasimha Varma II), from whom the Chinese sought help to counter Tibet.
