Hello everyone, I am Your Host Milan.
I am about to explore The gateway of south India, Chennai. I had only twelve hours in Chennai I’ve tried to cover as many places as possible. So without wasting any time let’s begin.
The first place I went to was Kapaleeshwarar temple. This temple was built in 7th century in Dravidian architecture And whether you are a religious person or just a tourist like me you simply can’t ignore this place.
After Kapaleeshwarar temple, I headed straight to yet another historical landmark of Chennai Santhome Cathedral. This church was built in the 16th century by Portuguese explorers In the 18th century, it was rebuilt as a church with the status of a cathedral by the British. Santhome cathedral is a perfect location for peace and tranquility amidst the bustling city.
After that, I went to Madras High Court Also, the public transportation in Chennai is so safe, easy and Convenient that you won’t need private cabs or tuk tuks to get around the city. Madras high court is equally popular among locals and tourists and I feel it’s because of its distinct red colour. This complex was built in the late 18th century and it is still the second largest judicial complex in the world. Madras high court is a perfect combination of politics, history & culture and no one should miss this place.
After that I headed straight to The Lighthouse. The Lighthouse offers bird’s eye view of Marina beach and the entire city And the best time to visit this place is in the evening (before sunset) And I ended my trip at India’s longest natural urban beach – Marina Beach.
Marina beach can be an ideal place for families & friends looking for some fun in the evening.
