South Indian Temples

by WhiteMughal

Does Chennai have those mind-boggling temples with so much detail on the outside. When I come there, I want to see one up close.

Re: South Indian Temples

Not far outside Chennai is Kanchipuram. It is one of the seven sacred cities of India and there are many fabulous temples there.

Along with Kanchipuram, I'd recommend visiting the temples of Mamallapuram.

Either of those places can be a day trip from Chennai but I'd recommend at least an overnight in Mamallapuram to explore the town.

Re: South Indian Temples

Nothing actually in Chennai? Somehow in the Tamil movies, I thought people were visiting temples in the city.

Re: South Indian Temples

by Donna_in_India

Oh no, you will find plenty in Chennai as well. Yes, the colorful ones. :-)

Re: South Indian Temples

Mylapore temple, Ayyappa Temple at R.A.Puram and Mahalingapuram might be worth checking out, every 2 sq km you will find a temple in Chennai.

Madurai Meenakshi temple and Thanjavur Periya Koil(temple) are by far the best in Tamil Nadu.

There's also a bid temple at Thiruvanmiyur, close to Kalakshektra(Bharatanayam's/Patrons architecting institute)

Kapaleeswarar Temple is within Chennai and easy to get to on the metro. Be very careful about leaving your shoes though, ours were stolen!

Kapaleeshwarar temple is the Mylapore temple i had mentioned.

Leave your footware in your car/cab, if possible. Other way is to wear your bathroom footware to the temple, usually they are not stolen, the attractive and expensive footware usually are the targets on the theives radar.

Re: South Indian Temples

by WhiteMughal

I'm always carrying stuff in some sort of bag. I'd just remove shoes from my feet and put in the bag. Especially after seeing the Taj Mahal scenes in Slumdog Millionaire! :D

Travel Tips for Chennai (Madras)

Yah! I would like to suggest U...

by L_Sumita

Yah! I would like to suggest U the restaurant
Vikram......a few steps from the Chennai Central!

I didn't miss out the lunch and dinner....as long I was there.

Also visit Marina beach, the second longest in the world, running for 12km from Chennai harbour in the north to Santhome (St. Thomas) church in the south, joining the Elliot quieter beach extending upto Adyar's residential colony.

If U like hill stations....then Ooty is a must... Ooty/Udagamandalam (hill station) -- 105 km from Coimbatore.

It is the capital of the Nilgiri district and is known as the 'Queen Of Hill Stations'. The highest peak - Doddabetta.

Attractions - Doddabetta, Ooty Lake, Deer Park, Rose garden, St. Stephens Church and Botanical Gardens. Best time to visit.....Feb to Mar and Sep to Oct. I really like the culture and tradition of South India....and just to roam around the places lazily to observe the local people and their daily life.

Though I hardly got a chance to visit any of the famous places there...I would refer U to visit Golden Beach!

We took a car and moved all the way from Triplicane to the Golden Beach. Going to new places and trying to learn a new language is really very exciting.

U can take an auto or a cab and move around the city...and I can assure.......that U will enjoy the journey!!!

Cloth by the mile

by tayloretc about Textiles

Textiles in India are astounding in their variety and color. They aren’t always cheap, but good tailoring is (relatively), so if you’ve ever wanted a tailor-made wardrobe…

There are a couple of larger “chains” with a half-dozen locations each around Chennai. Two of the larger are Nalli and Radha Silk Emporium (I’ve been to the locations at T. Nagar and Mylapore, respectively). Nalli is more like a collection of stores without walls. Radha has some ready-mades. I think Nalli has more physical stuff (at least at the T. Nagar location), but it’s a convoluted space and harder to maneuver, so that may be an illusion.

Nalli (#9 Nageswaran Road, T. Nagar)
Radha Silk Emporium (No.1, Sannadhi St, Mylapore)

Much of the time fabric is sold as a set – three pieces makes a salwar (top, trousers, dupatta) – and these larger stores, or really small stores you’ll never find on your own, are the only places you can get individual pieces. You can find textile shops all over the place, and you’d be amazed where they tuck themselves away.

Seaside pleasures

by IoannaE

Marina Beach is enormous - 13 km long and very wide (some people who saw my photos thought it was a desert!). Madras was lucky that the tsunami struck in the morning - in the evening the beach is full of people cooling off (especially on weekends), having a snack, flying kites etc. The beach draws lots of families and young couples, but just about anyone in Madras takes a stroll to the beach just to escape from the noise, pollution and general madness of the city. Mind you, I've been there at moments when the beach didn't smell any better than the city centre....but when there's a breeze all is well.

GUINDY NATIONAL PARK

by undisputed

Perhaps this is the world's only game reserve within the city limits. This national park's population includes spotted deer, black buck, civet cat, jackal, monkeys and reptiles. The park also has a snake park and an amusement park for the children. The snake-park has a collection that includes king cobras, pythons, vipers etc.

Chennai (Madras)

by Rodan44

My wife and I travelled to Chennai, our first trip to India, to attend a friend's brother's Hindu wedding. The wedding was quite exotic and amazing, and the family treated us as VIP guests. We had a couple days to explore the city and found that it has a lot of culture and interesting attractions despite the fact that most guide books rate the city very low. If you go with an open mind, some basic knowledge of the local culture, and sense of adventure, then you can have a lot of fun in Chennai.

Please visit the Chennai page on my personal website to see many more high quality photos from this destination.
