We went to see Bahubali in this theatre. Everyone told it is the ultimate movie experience, but I felt it is just another multiplex. Also, the parking facility is pathatic. It took 1/2 hour to take out my car from the slot.

Another busy neighbourhood that is a center of trade
and commercial related sctivities is the famous and
popular Royapettah. Apart from being known for its
many tourist attractions, Royapettah is a favourite
shopping and entertainment check in for all budget
travelers. Popular for shops selling home fabrics,
traditional sweets, furniture and house décor, it can
be quite a delight for all those looking at packing in
