  • The city of Chennai is a fascinating amalgamation of culture, history, and modernity. With its ancient temples, golden sandy beaches on the Bay of Bengal and its aesthetic practice of local music and dance, the city holds a certain beauty and fascination for most travelers. This tour intends to take you on a journey to experience the very best which includes-Fort St. George, the Kapaleeswarar Temple, and Marina Beach. Fort St. George is currently 350 years old with wide battlements that are a distinct reminder of the British Indian past. Today, the buildings in the fort are home to the Tamil Nadu State Government Secretariat and the Legislative Assembly. Within the fort complex, a number of other British buildings still survive, of which, St. Mary's Church is the most interesting. The museum of Fort St. George is also a fascinating tourist attraction for all its artifacts from the East India Company and the colonial past. Next, your tour will take you to the renowned Kapaleeswarar Temple which is dedicated to Lord Shiva. The temple complex has a market which is traditional to most Indian temples, a tank for ritualistic cleaning and the residential home of the Bhramin who serves as a priest. The final step of the tour is a visit to the Marina Beach which is a 6.5 k.m. stretch of sandy basin, running from the North near Fort St. George, to Foreshore Estate in the South. Please note, swimming here is prohibited due to the turbulent undercurrent.
