Hi
Chennai is cheap for staying and specially for food. You can have you meals at approximate 100/- rs per day. And for stay you will get different options starting from 250/-rs per day.

Re: Cost for a month

by vdadu

Very True, Chennai is quiet cheaper compared to other Metropolitan Cities. However, expense depends upon person and his/her likings/dislikings.

In order to minimise you daily expenses, u may go for

a) For transporation, Rail is the cheapest and next to it comes Buses and then Autorikshaw and then Taxis. Choose accordingly.

b) For stay, Hostels are the cheapest.

c) Regarding fooding, it depends wut exactly u prefer.

However, I agree with the earlier VTer that the minimum expenditure possible on daily basis is around INR 350.00.

For you, drinking water will be problem i.e kindly go for mineral water only which cost around INR 10 to 15 per litre (Packed Bottle).

I hope this will be helpful.

Keep Smiling

--with this (specify) amount would it possible to stay for a month in Chennai.?
---iam a male/female student.

so that more suggestions can be given.

all the best.

Travel Tips for Chennai (Madras)

People are quite reserved in...

by newsfreak

People are quite reserved in madras. avoid talking to ladies when they are unaccompanied. in temples, remove your shoes outside the outer sanctum itself. some temples require the men to remove their shirts. do not take photographs of the idols. this is a mark of disrespect. also, a lot of people speak english and are very helpful with directions. STRICTLY AVOUD DRINKING WATER FROM ANYWHERE EXCEPT TRUSTED BRANDS OF BOTTLED WATER. BISLERI OR AQUAFINA CAN BE TRUSTED.

tax on alcohol

by mollynsteve about Le Meridien Navratna

at our hotel, and probably others, the tax added for imported wine or spirits was 70%; for domestic, 55% - be aware of these high
surtaxes. I am not sure if domestic beer is taxed. We found it economical to enjoy beer with our restaurant dinners and buy wine or Indian rum to enjoy in the room - Grovers and Riviera were two brands of Indian wine we enjoyed, both inexpensive in wine stalls. special Nawadh menu, all delicious

High Court

by Willettsworld

Madras High Court was established on June 26, 1862 as one of the three High Courts of India (others at Bombay and Calcutta) established at Presidency Towns by Letters Patent granted by Queen Victoria. The jurisdiction of the Madras High Court extends to Tamil Nadu and Pondicherry. The building of the High Court, an exquisite example of Indo-Saracenic style of architecture, was built in 1892, under the guidance of the famed architect Henry Irwin. The High Court building was damaged in the shelling of Madras by S.M.S. Emden on 22 September 1914, at the beginning of the First World War. It remains one of the very few Indian buildings to have been damaged by a German attack.

St Andrew's Church

by Willettsworld

Also called `the Queen of Scottish Churches in the East,' St Andrew's Church is one of the finest specimens of Georgian architecture in the Indian sub-continent. The Church, also known as 'the Kirk,' was built in 1780, on the site of Freemasons Lodge and was consecrated in 1821. Inspired by St Martin-in-the-Fields in London, it was designed by Major Thomas de Havilland and Colonel James Caldwell of the Madras Engineers at a cost of £20,000.

The body of the church is a circle, with rectangular compartments to the east and west. The circular part, 24.5m (80ft) in diameter, is crowned by a shallow dome coloured a deep blue by crushed sea shells mixed with lapis lazuli. This is painted with golden stars and supported by 16 fluted pillars with Corinthian capitals. The steeple is 50m (164ft) high and features a bronze weathercock. The entrance features a double colonnade of 12 polished Ionic columns.
