Chennai, The Gateway to South India

Places to visit in Chennai

Chennai has so much to offer and is considered to be the cultural hub of Southern India for its classical dance, music, sculptures and crafts, and this is only a snippet! People continue to visit for its breathtaking Marina beach, a 13km stretch of just sea and sand on the eastern side of the city, perfect for an evening stroll after a day of exploring or for its gorgeous architecture including Parthasarathy and Kapaleeswarar temples with its eye catching colours and designs.

Another highlight of the city is the beautiful Fort St George, built by the British in 1644 as a trading post. The St. George Fort is divided into two sections- St Mary’s Church, the oldest Anglican Church in India and The Fort Museum which showcases an array of artefacts such as coins, medals, paintings, letters and much more.
