India Seashell Museum
Also, there is a sea shell museum in Mahabalipuram, India Seashell Museum. It is sad not many people visit this place.A collection of over 40,000 seashells and marine fossils from around the world can't be missed. Can it? what's more inspiring is that all these have been collected by a single man. There are shells as tiny as the tip of a needle. This is the place where I learned that seashells have species too.
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.
