Before starting this trip i had just finished my sandakphu trip with friends which i will b sharing in the next publish. So i flew from bagdogra to chennai via kolkata and booked a hotel oyo silver key nearby chennai Airport about 10 mins. Chennai was a complete new city to me. New language. Though people were very soft spoken. Hotel was clean and silent which i badly needed after a 5 day sandakphu trek. Woke up in the morning, freshned up myself for a new SOUTH TRIP.. this was a family trip bdw.
Day 1 starts here : we were 6 of us hired a innova with a tamilian driver who didnt understood a bit of English and hindi which made us crazy on our first day itself. And the fun part was that his name was Raj(naam toh suna hi hoga). So we started off from chennai to kanchipuram which took about 1 hrs 30mins. Kanchipuram is an ancient city in tamil nadu state. It is famous for the temples and silk( P. S - LADIES PLZ SHOP SAREE FROM HERE ITSELF. you get v cheap and good quality of silk sarees.)
The two famous temples are kamakshi amman temple in which you get to see the architectural designs and another temple is the perumal temple which is famous for the two lizards which says touching those lizards frees u of the sins and diseases.
Later in kanchipuram we did some shopping as the ladies gets charged up with shopping.
We had lunch later on at the sarvana bhawan which is famous all over tamil. Very good food.
From there we left for balaji tirupati temple which is the venkateshwara swami temple at tirumala. Reached there at night and took a short nap because we had morning darshan.
