Marina Beach

Santhome Cathedral

Kapaleeshwar Temple

Parthsarthy Temple

DakshinaChitra

 
   

 

Fort St. George

Still a powerful symbol of the British Empire, this forbidding, unadorned fort was the first piece of real estate for British in India. It housed barracks for the British army, a parade ground, and St Mary’s, the oldest church of Chennai.

 


 

Marina Beach

Running from Fort St. George to Mahabalipuram, Chennai’s most popular beach is popular for promenades, fortune tellers and peddles selling everything from ice-creams to balloons. Unfortunately, the sea can get quite rough, so swimming isn’t encouraged.

 


Santhome Cathedral

Built over the tomb of apostle St. Thomas, the Santhome Cathedral is an important pilgrimage centre. According to legends, St. Thomas arrived in India from Palestine in AD 52 and died after 26 year. There is a museum in its premises with a 16th-century map of South Asia.

 


 

Kapaleeshwar Temple

Situated in the Malaypore area of Chennai, this temple was constructed in the 13th century and is an excellent example of Southern Indian temple architecture. The main entrance facing east is painted in red, blue and yellow with Puranic legends sculpted on the sanctum sanctorum.

 


Parthsarthy Temple

Built in the 8th century by the Pallava kings of South India, this magnificent temple is famed for the beauty of its architecture. The surrounding area was designed to focus on the temple, which is situated near Triplicane beach.

 


 

DakshinaChitra 

Located at Muttukadu on the new Mamallapuram Road 20 km away from Chennai, this is a unique heritage village showcasing the traditional lifestyles of the diverse people of South India.
