    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......

    Entrance from typically hot, busy & chaotic Chennai street. Into a cool & quiet oasis set back in time. Enjoyed the serenity and sense of history.

    You won't get to shop what it is famous for i.e. gadgets that are imported or through customs. instead, you will find tiny boxy shops selling cheap Chinese replicas etc.

    However, it is fun to walk by the market due to A. See old architecture around and B. Fun experience since such small, old and famous markets will always have more to connect with city's culture, people, history and local old food joints (shabby though sometimes).

    Ancient and small temple on OMR, near Siruseri. Very peaceful and quiet and clean. Every Sannidhi has a stotram, pasuram or shloka on the surrounding walls. If you have have time and interest, read them. Temple door opens at 6am, sannidhi at 7am. Closes at around 12pm and again opens at 4pm. Parking is available inside the premises.

    Anna flyover was popular until two decades back. In the last two decades several big fly overs have come up in Chennai city.

    Anna Flyover is also known as Gemini Flyover. It is one of the first flyover built in the country after the fly overs built at Kemps Corner and Marine Drive in Mumbai. It was the longest flyover in the country when it was built.

    Its main purpose is to allow traffic movement on Mount Road (now renamed as Anna Salai) near Nungambakkam High Road to continue un-hindered by the cross road traffic. The presence of the Gemini Cinema Studios, which was demolished later, resulted in the flyover coming to be known as Gemini Flyover.

    It was an attraction in olden days but nowadays no.

    Even though in many aspects this is an unremarkable and smallish Victorian church on a very busy road I recommend to pop in to admire the pictures. A few shiny, colourful, bold and thoroughly Indian images depict Jesus and Christianity in a style mostly associated with Hindu imagery; I found ‘Space’ Jesus and the red lights behind the cross particularly awesome.
    The visit only requires a short time and as this is a fully working church a respectful attitude is a must. The front porch is a good spot to take photos of the majestic Madras High Court across the road and a church itself with its benches is perfect for a short break while visiting central Chennai.
