Old Delhi

Old Delhi was founded as Shahjahanabad by Mughal Emperor Shahjahan in 1639. It remained the capital of the Mughals until the end of the Mughal dynasty. Many people tend to get confused between Delhi and New Delhi. To be precise, New Delhi is the later development done to Delhi or Old Delhi. The Old Delhi was the place that the Mughal kings ruled for centuries. This part has most of the old monuments, palaces and buildings. New Delhi comes under the same government and started becoming popular much after independence in spite of being a creation of the British Raj. This part is made up of the best restaurants, clubs, cafes, contemporary and modern museums, offices and other extensions. Malls are also an important feature of New Delhi which makes it different from the old markets of Old Delhi.

Often displaying work from upcoming as well as well-established artists, this gallery never disappoints when you’re hunting for that perfect painting to wake up to or that perfect bed to sleep on.

Vanakkam Madurai

One of the most developing commercial cities of the country, Madurai is also known as Thoonga Nagaram which literally means 'The city which never sleeps'. There are a number of legends behind the naming of this city. Some say that once Lord Indra worshipped Lord Shiva here under a Kadamba tree and the abundance of this species of trees is due to the blessings of the Lord Shiva. The city was thus known as Ambabhavana. Another legend says that once Lord Shive appeared in the dreams of King Kulasekara and from the knots of the Shiva's long hair dripped sweet drops of honey on this part of the land and thus the name was given as Madhurapuri, later converted to Madurai. This city is also the land of great poets, critics, artists and musicians apart from having a rich history of kings, their conquests and culture. This city was also known as the 'Athens of the East' as Megasthenes had once visited this place and loved it. The main attraction here is no doubt the Meenakshi Amman Temple which recieves devotees in the rates of thousands every week. The other specialties of Madurai are the Chungudi cotton sarees, dying motifs, handicrafts and wooden toys.

Cholamandal Artists' Village

As soon as I entered the place, I was mesmerised by the bohemian vibes of the place. Cholamandal Artists' Village is the "largest artists' commune in India." The artists of this village are credited to bring the Madras Movement of Art almost entirely on their own. It was nice to know that the place I was marvelling the paintings at was so significant and yet there was hardly any soul in sight.
