    I spent my childhood in Mylapore and hence returning for a visit was nostalgic, although it has become extremely commercial and crowded. But walking through the streets around Kapaleeswarar temple tank and by lanes brought back memories, not to forget the relegious fervor of the Markazhi month

    There are lot of shops to choose from with varied prices, you can get items starting from 5 rupees. Pondy bazaar is in TNagar, it is a huge street. Parking is little difficult to get during weekends especially for cars, but well organized parking throughout the area. There are lot of items to choose from based on your budget, this is heaven for girls for sure......

    You have to get through government security to get into the place. It contains some interesting things relating to the early history of the East India Company. You have to go out into the civil service areas to get a tea or find a toilet
