Chennai Travel Guide

The city that for a long long time was Madras is still hot and fiery as "Chennai" which is what it has been called since 1996. At once the centre of classical dance, classical Carnatic music and a vibrant polity, Chennai is finding its feet as a hip and urban centre where its young drinks-after-dinner executives are as happy as the arts and culture aficionados.

Once a tiny a tiny fishing village, today Chennai city is a busy metro, somewhat congested and polluted, but colourful as always. Larger than life "heroes" from 70mm celluloid beam out of even larger hoardings and if they can ‘grin and bear it’ so can you. The Tamilians love and revere their screen gods and it shows in their habit of electing them to top governmental posts, whenever one stands for elections.

Beaches and temples, bars and pubs versus spicy Chettinad cuisine, shopping for saris or hip clothes in designer boutiques - Chennai has it all. Travel to Chennai and discover how tradition and modernity seamlessly blend into each other in Chennai!

The city of Chennai is famous for a number of Hindu shrines and attracts a large number of devotees all year round.
