Tamil Nadu’s capital, Chennai, presents a rather tasteful yet charming array of architecture and leisure.
Here is a glimpse:
Government Museum, Egmore
This is a complex that houses one of the countries oldest art galleries and archaeological museums.
The Art gallery was an integral part of Archaeology section until 1983 AD.
The elegant pink building is a well known landmark and is an example of Indo-Saracenic architecture.
For those who love temple architecture and yearn to observe the intricate chiseled work that were popular during India’s oldest dynasties, this place could guarantee you that and more.
Of the many displays, the models of a Vaishnavite and Shaivaite temple, placed adjacent to one-another are the most unique.
One of India’s oldest Universities, the University of Madras captures a spectator’s attention not only due to its grand structure, but also for its ideal location.
Situated across the world’s second longest beach – Marina, this University is bound to trigger creative minds through its unique walls and doors.
Madras Literary Society
One of the city’s oldest libraries, the Madras Literary Society houses a unique collection of books, which could be traced back to about four centuries ago. The library was founded in the year 1817.
Elliot’s Beach, Besant Nagar
This beach is the life of the Chennai. To me, the Elliot’s beach at Besant Nagar is a place where one could unwind, introspect and pave ways for a new beginning at day or night!
