Kalarpana Dance School

by WhiteMughal

On a trip to Chennai, the ONE place I absolutely could not miss is Kalarpana Dance School. If I bought a prepaid taxi ticket, would the taxiwallah automatically know how to get to the school? Is it that well known?

Re: Kalarpana Dance School

by vpas

do you mean the kalakshetra dance school?

Re: Kalarpana Dance School

by WhiteMughal

Nope. Kalarpana. Actress-Dancer Shobana started it. I googled it last night and got a hit with the address.

Re: Kalarpana Dance School

by Avijayan

Shobana lives near Velacherry, you'd be better off to ask the taxi guy to take you to Actress Shobana's dance school, cabbie's usually know places by the name of the famous/celebrity who runs it.

I'm sure you can get the address from Shobana's website and hand it over to the driver, he will take you there.

Re: Kalarpana Dance School

by WhiteMughal

I like that suggestion. Sounds like something I might accidentally think up myself. The Chennai cabbies are pretty literate then? I could write it in the Roman alphabet without any problem? If I had the address on a paper and said "How much to get here?" they'd know what they want for the trip?

Re: Kalarpana Dance School

by Avijayan

Use the pre-paid cab service, its very professional and metered and safe. And yes most of the cab drivers can manage to communicate in English.

Good information. Thanks.

Travel Tips for Chennai (Madras)

Kapaleeswarar Temple

by Canadienne

This temple is a fantastic example of Dravidian architecture ~ this is what comes to mind whenever I picture southern Hindu temples. The brightly painted plaster sculptures are breathtaking. . .and the layout inside the temple grounds is like a small town itself.

The Meenakshi Temple in Madurai is even more incredible. . .but my photos from Chennai turned out much better.

Authentic Art and Carvings

by tayloretc about Aparna Art Gallery

Buying "authentic" arts and crafts in India can be dicey. There are a lot of charlatans, a lot of otherwise well-meaning people trying to earn a living, and some legitimate art dealers. Aparna Art Gallery belongs to the last group.

Many of the pieces are actually salvaged materials refurbished. Old houses in southern India often incorporate beautiful carvings into the architecture - panels, pillars, and other pieces. Huge numbers of the old houses in and around Chennai have been and are being torn down to build apartments. Panels end up being cut apart, pillars removed from capitals - in the end, pieces end up, well, in pieces, and can be bought if you look hard enough. There are also Tanjore and other paintings, furniture, and decorative items.

Aparna is in an unassuming location and caters mostly to locals. The pieces are good quality, interesting, and mostly priced according to market value (i.e., expensive). You may want to call in advance to make sure you can get in. As far as I can tell the workers speak only Hindi, so arrange accordingly.

Madras Crocodile bank

by FruitLover

Located 42-km from Chennai (Madras) is a farm where several species of Indian and African crocodiles and alligators are bred in captivity. This crocodile bank is on the way to Mamallapuram. About 5,000 species are kept in their natural surroundings in open pools. They can be viewed from a safe distance.

The Crocodile Bank occupies an area of 3.2 hectares and has been established with an aim to protect and conserve the endangered reptile s such as Crocodiles, Alligators, snakes etc.

Auyervedic Treatment

by PierreZA

Although Kerala is better known for Ayuerveda, you do have quite a few options in Chennai.
I can recommend Ayush. It is a very professional service, extremely clean and not expensive. There are many different treatments to choose from, or you cab just go for a good full body oil massage (Ind Rs 550 for 45 min, January 2008).

Southern Indian Delight

by MikeStacey

"Beautiful Sandy Beaches"

There are three major beaches in Channai, all are fabulous, THey are :-
Marina Beach
This is the second longest beach in the world and is a major tourist attraction. It stretches about 13 kms from the Harbour to the Santhome Cathedral. The Memorials such as Anna Samadhi, MG R Samadhi are located on the sea front. This section of the beach road is known as Anna Square. An aquarium, of tropical and marine fishes and a swimming pool are situated adjacent to each other.
Elliot's Beach
This beach is located in Besant Nagar. Formerly a popular bathing beach, today, it is the favourite rendezvous of the younger generation. Good roads, pavements, illuminated sands, makes a visit to this beach a real pleasure.

Covelong
Covelong is a small fishing village located 40 kms from Chennai on the way to Mahabalipuram. Now it is a luxury beach resort. This beach has a fort built by the Nawab of Carnatic, Saadat Ali.
