Chennai is the capital of the Indian state of Tamil Nadu. Formerly known as Madras, it is scenically located on the Coromandel Coast off the Bay of Bengal and is one of the leading cultural and economic axes of South India. The city is home to a wide range of architecture that features a full range of more than 1500 year old monuments built in various architectural styles like Dravidian, Agraharam and Pallava. Chennai was a stronghold of British Raj in India and visitors can visit the mid 17th century Fort St. George, a museum that beautifully showcases the city’s history as a British military garrison and trading outpost.
Things to do in Chennai
Kapaleeswarar Temple (or Kapaleeshwara)
Kapaleeswarar Temple is one of Chennai's oldest and best-known temples. It was first built in 8th century and then multiple additions were made to it until 17th century. A glorious signature of Dravidian architecture, this temple is dedicated to Goddess Parvati and is thus known as Karpagambal (Tamil term for the ‘Goddess of the Wish-Yielding Tree’). An impossible to miss architectural highlight in it is its 121 feet high entrance gate called gopuram that is decorated for Thaipusam festival in January.
At 7.45 mile in length, Chennai’s Marina Beach is the second longest urban beach in the world. It is visited by city’s residents during early morning, late evenings and on weekends- and watching a sunrise or sunset here is often a favorite pastime for many. The beachside ambiance flaunts several colonial era buildings and a routine sight of several people eating local snacks made of boiled and spiced lentils and dry noodles.
