Any Luggage storage facility at Chennai Airport?

by Wheel_Spanner

Hi
I need to stow our luggages for 2 days in (preferably) Chennai Airport.
Is there any facilities at the airport?
If there is, what do they charge for the service?

I searched in the Chennai Airport website, but could find none.
(But, mind you, the website doesn't even have arrival / departure information, which is surprising in a country full of IT talented people.)

Can any Chennites give me the answer for my question?
Thanks in advance, for your help.

Which website were you looking at? You can find timetables, as opposed to actual arrivals/departures, on http://www.madrastimes.com/flight_timings.htm.
There is a left luggage office in the International Terminal, daily charge depends on size of bag, for my suitcase it was something like 40 Rs, 2 or 3 years ago. I don't know about the domestic terminal.

Thanks for your link.
I looked at the official Chennai airport website :
http://www.chennaiairport.com/

Expected similar standards to Singapore airport's: www.changiairport.com
(with all the IT expertise that India provides to all over the world!)

Cheers!

Travel Tips for Chennai (Madras)

M A Chidambaram Stadium

by johnbradshawlayfield

The M. A. Chidambaram Stadium is a cricket stadium in Chennai (formerly Madras), India, named after M. A. Chidambaram, the former President of BCCI and the Tamil Nadu Cricket Association. The stadium was formerly known as Madras Cricket Club ground or Chepauk Stadium. Commonly known as Chepauk, its first match was played February 10, 1934. This stadium is where the Indian cricket team won its first ever Test victory here in 1952 against England. It is the home ground of the Tamil Nadu cricket team. The stadium witnessed history when only the second tied test was played here between India and Australian in 1986, which included Dean Jones making a heroic 210, Greg Matthews taking 10 wickets and Kapil Dev scoring an excellent century. Another famous moment was Saeed Anwar's record 194 against India in the Independence Cup in 1997. The stadium also witnessed dramatic scenes when 50,000 fans gave a standing ovation to the Pakistani cricket team in 1999 after victory in a very closely fought test match. The nature of the pitch at this ground is bouncy which offers something to both the bat and the ball in a country renowned for producing dry, low, spinning, flat wickets.

Great Kebab...

by tayloretc about The Great Kebab Factory

There’s a factory-type theme, and the wait staff wear factory style jumpsuits, but the food is definitely not assembly line.

There are two fixed-price menu options – veg and non-veg (meat). Courses are served sequentially, and each one is wonderful. You can repeat courses as often as you like at no additional charge. The veg is excellent and my meat-eating friends tell me the non-veg is as well. And the wait staff will tell you a little about everything you get.

The only thing I dislike, actually, is that when you go a second (and third and fourth) time, the waiters will still tell you a little about everything you get, even if you ask them not to. Veg fixed-price menu (all of it!).

Kabalisware temple(16 th Century)

by radz


This is one of the oldest temple in he city.Its Shiva temple,build by Vijayanagar kings in the 16th Century.The temple Gopuram is 37 metre height,its not very tall Gopuram,
but it was build as Dravidian temple architecture.Now its renovation is going on. so i count take closeup latest pic :(.
Inside outer yard can see bronze statue of 63 Saivite Saints displayed .

The significant of this temple,the legend goes like this, its site of miraclewhen Saint Gnanasambandar sang a hyme to Lord Kapaleeswarar to resurrect a dead gal from her ashes.
This templs is main landmark in city,near Luz corner is main shopping place.

"Billboards and more"

Most travel guides don’t rate Chennai very highly as a tourist destination. I enjoyed the few days I spent here very much.
Many negative things could be said about the city – the poverty, it is very stretched out, the heat etc.
There are also many positives, like the temples, friendly people, very good food etc.

Arriving at the airport is much less chaotic than most other I used before (eg Mumbai, Delhi and Cochin).
The city is very sprawling, which makes it a bit more difficult to travel in. Chennai does not seem to have a central area, which could be called the heart of the city, but it rather feels like several small towns, linked to one another.
I stayed in Egmore, and did find it to be quite centrally located, easy to operate from.
Poverty is quite prevalent, but I did find that there were less begging compared to a city like Mumbai.
The South Indian food is something very special, and really worth trying as much as possible.

CHENNAI-1

by goutammitra

THIS CANNON WAS USED BY TIPU SULTAN AGAINST THE EAST INDIA COMPANY IN THE WAR OF SRIRANGAPATTANAM. IN DISPLAY IN THE GARDEN OF CHENNAI MUSEUM.

THIS WAS ORIGINALLY BUILT IN FIFTH CENTURY. RENOVATED RESTORED BY VARIOUS RULING DYNASTIES OF SOUTH INDIA. LAST TIME IN 16TH CENTURY.

IN SOUTH INDIA YOU GET TO SEE VERY COLOURFUL TEMPLES AND DEITIES. THAT IS THE SPECIALITY OF DRAVIDIAN ARCHITECTURE.

THIS BEACH IS SUPPOSED TO BE SECOND LARGEST AFTER CALIFORNIA BEACH 13K.M. LONG. BUT THE SEA IS VERY ROUGH HERE. SWIMMING IS NOT RECOMMENDED. WE TOOK THIS PHOTOGRAPH JUST ONE YEAR AFTER SUNAMI ON 26TH. DECEMBER,2005. THE SUNAMI LEFT ABOUT 1400 PEOPLE DEAD HERE IN THIS BEACH.
