Off to Chennai, India

24 01 2007

I will be in India for the next 10 days, Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India to be exact.

After a 2 day tortuous journey, will be attending the Indian International Leather Fair, seeking suppliers and new business partners and products.

Any tips or hints on how to enjoy Chennai to its fullest would be appreciated.

You can try the food (Saravana Bhavan for Tamilian vegetarian food).
Visit Mahabalipuram 50 kms from Chennai. Visit Dakshinachitra (heritage village) on the way to Mahabailipuram (see ancient Pallava dynasty rock temples and sculpture). If you have more time, you can visit Pondicherry 150kms from Chennai. Pondy was a French colonial province now part of India. Has the Aurobindo Ashram and Auroville, nice restaurants, quaint sea side town with French architecture). The drive to Mahabs and Pondicherry on the ECR is rather scenic. Pondy can also be a one day visit.

In Chennai, visit the Mueseum, Fort St.George, Marina Beach (second longest Beach in the world), Besant Nagar Beach, or Thiruvanmiyur Beach, Theosophical Society campus (I frankly don’t know what they do there, but they have the largest Banyan tree in the campus).

You can visit temples galore: Parthasarathy Temple, Kapileeswarar Temple. You can also visit the San Thome Basilica and St.Thomas Mount. Check to see if there is any Tamil cultural event at the Music Academy or Narada Gnana Sabha. See Tamil Movies at Satyam Complex or Prarthana Drive-in Theatre.
