Visit Chennai or not?

by jlfloyd

I will be traveling in India for a month and am trying to figure out my itinerary. I will be in Northern India most, but wanted to know if a trip to Chennai is worth it, or if I can skip it. The tourist books dont say much to sell me on the trip, but I think I remember a friend telling me it was interesting. Any thoughts?

Re: Visit Chennai or not?

I just sent a reply to your other post about your trip and suggested about breaking the trip up in to 2 halfs and return again another time.

Now you need to ask yourself do you really won't to go to Chennai if you not bothered about Chennai then you need ask yourself the same question about Kochi as well because both of these places are along way from the Kolkata.

The state of Kerala you can easily spend a month there exploring it up and down). If you are not serious about Chennai then head for Goa and spend a few more days around Agra area and visit places like Jhansi, Orchha and Gwailor on your way to Khajuraho or travel to Puri south of Kolkata and visit the Sun Temple in Konak and a little beach time in Puri, a must see there is to get up for sunrise and see the fisherman leave the beach in the morning, abosulty stunning with the sunrise in the background.

Sounds to me you are not bothered about Chennai, I would concentrate more on the north and return and see the south another time.

If you want to see what these places are like then visit my India pages but you will have to go via my map I am currently laying the foundations for my India pages and have not linked them up yet so far.

Re: Visit Chennai or not?

by WWFRanger

I just replied to your earlier post and whether to visit or not is your choice.But as Earthflyer rightly says if you are going to skip Chennai,skip Kochi and Periyar also.The tour you have planned is possible is 1 or 2 legs you travel by flight.

by ViajesdelMundo

I have a small page on Chennai, from my trip in 2008; I was staying in a small hotel, but near to local friends of mine.
My introduction addresses your question directly:

by radz


This is old Lord Krishna temple,the orignally build by Pallavas ie the 8 the century.It was

Temple-ing

by durvan

Loads of temples around the area, just ask any tour guy and he'll take you there.
Architecture is simply amazing, but unfortunately, you have to be very careful with the con artists all over the temple area, especially the temple priests. the worst of the kind. they'll con you into thinking you're doing the right thing for the temple, and they end up taking your money. Scoundrels.

Vandalur Zoo

by abi_maha

Far from the city and one of the greenest parts of Chennai is the Vandalur Zoo. Set a day aside to ensure you, it is also called Arignar Anna Zoological Park. From reptiles to wild cats you get to see it all here- more than 170 species of animals here and one of the largest zoos of India & South Asia, it is also India's first public zoo.

"Madras"

A city of Contrasts and diversities, Chennai is the forth-largest city in India. Known world wide as Madras until recently, the city was renamed Chennai, evolved from the age-old name, Chennapattinam.

Chennai is a coastal city with the second largest beach in the world. The climate is hot and humid. But the breeze blowing from the sea makes the climate bearable. In the summer the temperature reaches up to 42 degree C (month of May). The winter (Dec.- Feb.) is slightly less hot than the summer. Mansoon falls in Sept. - Nov. Chennai is the Capital of Tamil Nadu.

"History"

Chennaipattinam was a popular trading center for spices and clothes for more than 2000 years. Portuguese and Dutch arrived in the 16 th century followed by the British and French. In 1639 the British East India Company established a settlement in the fishing village of Madraspattnam that they leased from the local Nayaks.

In Madraspattnam they started construction of Fort St. George. George Town grew in the area of fort and neighboring villages ultimately becoming the oldest Municipality of India in 1668. During the 17 th and 18 th centuries Europeans competed for supremacy in India and Briton became the ultimate gainer. Under the command of Robert Clive, British launched a campaign against French, a series of war known as the Carnatic Wars. Finally the French were forced to withdraw to Pondicherry.

The city grew into modern day Madras City merging all neighboring areas. In the 19th century the city became the seat of Madras Presidency, the southern division of British Imperial India. After independence in 1947 it became the capital of Madras State that was renamed Tamil Nadu. Very recently Madras was renamed Chennai.
