Dakshinachitra  offers a glimpse of the culture and heritage of the bygone era in South India. It’s by far the most different tourist destination I have seen in Chennai. 
It describes cultural heritage of South India states like Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Andra Pradesh, Kerala.

Entry  time would be everyday 10am to 6pm. Entry fee for Indians is 100 RS, for foreigners is 250Rs, for children 30Rs and for students it's 50-75 RS. Believe me it's worth visiting this place and knowing about culture.

We can feel the "chukki mane" or "star home"  and there we can even  learn pottery.

Andhra Pradesh is one of the cultural states among the southern states of india. Charismatic house with a proper Andra kitchen exhibits their variety  in flavours.

Added advantage

Paradise to shopohollics. All antique jewelry and decoratives are available with little high rate as compared to market price. So shop accordingly.
Snacks and beverages are available.
Be it any climate carrying umbrella is my suggestion.
