For all those saying Shore temple is not a temple but a monument, you must know that Shore temple is one of the 108 divya desams (Vishnu Kshetrams). Sthala sayana swamy of shore temple has been worshipped by Thirumangai Azhwar.
Various records also suggest that Pallava kings worshipped Sthala sayana before going to the battlefield. The shore temple was shifted to the current Sthala sayana swamy temple in front of Bhagiratha's penance (wrongly stated as Arjuna's penance) during Vijayanagara period
The reason for this shift has been mainly attributed to the rise in sea level which caused existential crisis for the temple on the shore.
Unbelievable to see some tweeps saying, "These monuments were never meant for worship". The ignorance level among Hindus is so astonishing. One of the oldest cave temples of Mamallapuram dedicated to Varaha who is also believed to be the Kuladeva of Pallavas is still functioning
