Located off the coast of Bay of Bengal is Tamil Nadu’s capital and India’s fourth largest city. Formerly known as Madras, the metropolis is the main transportation hub for southern India. Travel to Chennai for the unique exhibit of architecture from the British Raj, peaceful pilgrimage sites and a delectable South Indian cuisine. Tourists can start their day with a walk by the beautiful Marina Beach, teeming with fishermen and their boats, and makeshift bazaars fringing the shore. Among the other places to visit in Chennai, start with the characterful neighbourhood of Mylapore that houses the vibrant Kapaleeshwarar Temple. Then head to Rajaji Salai’s Fort in St George that once was home to the British East India Company. The Government Museum inside the imposing Pantheon complex of the colonial era is a popular attraction. The state museum is decked with bronze antiques dating back to the 7th century Pallava era. Surfing along the Covelong beach and walking through the bustling bazaars of George Town are a few of the most common things to do in Chennai. Also, don’t leave here without getting yourself an authentic South Indian thali from the illustrious Saravana Bhavan.

About Velankanni

A little less than a thirty kilometres from Karaikal, lies Velankanni. The stark white Church of Our Lady is the first structure that comes to view as soon as you start approaching the beach. Nestled between cashew groves, the church was initially dedicated to the goddess of sailors, Our Lady Star of the Sea. Before you leave Velankanni, be sure to drop in at the adjoining museum, the neighbouring bazaar festooned with seashell handicrafts and toys moulded out of clay and the pristine beach.
