    The temple has both Ayyappaswamy and Guruvayurappan as the main deities. Had excellent darshan. All daily poojas, including the Ganapathi homam are performed daily. Not crowded (probably because of Covid 19) and devotees are checked for temperature, hands sanitised. Wearing a mask is compulsory. The entire temple and its surroundings are clean and tidy. All rituals are performed as per malayalee tradition by priests from Kerala.

    A quaint library with a fantastic collection of books of all genre. The architecture of the building is itself a marvel.

    The museum is an fantastic gothic building and stands out. The collection is quite fascinating. I spent the most time in Bronze statues. Don't miss the sections of bronze from Chola period. Quite a memorable visit.

    Spencer Plaza- used to be Chennai's most famous shopping mall- It was the first one in that smart city to host millions of lovers, events, families- still it's open to host many such precious moments in people's life. The livelihood of the shop owners entirely depends upon the young customers, they have unique products and the shopping experience entirely, was new to me.

    All pocket friendly products- except the Jammu & Kashmir shops- despite their price, I loved their product, they are fancy, unique and alluring.

    I think they need our support. Show some love!

    Within the confines of a busy city like Chennai, this picturesque place is a consolation to breathe in the freshness & liveliness of green nature. Definitely worth visiting especially for an evening walk, meditation & relaxation.

    The Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium was built in 1993 with a seating capacity of 40,000 spectators. The stadium is located at Sydenhams Road, Park Town behind the Chennai Central suburban railway station and the Ripon Building.

    The stadium has 400m 8-lane synthetic Athletic Track and a natural turf football pitch in the middle. Facilities for judo, weightlifting, table tennis, shooting and boxing have also been provided.The spectator seating all around the stadium is on two tiers (with each tier having two levels of seating) with stepped access from the outside, at ground level.The spectator seating in the stadium is segmented into 8 blocks (A to H).

    There are ten outer gates in the perimeter wall of the Stadium. Gate No1 is the main gate with a guardhouse and is used for stadium access by the players and the VVIPs.

    This one was located in the traditional commodity area within the city limit unless other malls which are currently far away. It has attracted major B & C segment crowds in the past and now slowly fading away within the segment itself. To keep it live a major facelift is required for the entire mall and the movie halls needs latest technologies & architecture to win the battle with other rivals like VR, Phoenix, Skywalk..etc.. (Note: Can't compare Abirami with other malls since it is the smallest one in the category) Some speculations around the corner that the owners are going to give a new facelift before mid of the year & looking forward for the out-turn.

    I stayed in the Belstead for a few days while in Chennai. The staff was fantastic. The main doorman,and the others who also were on the door, were excellent. Always keen to help with securing a tuk tuk, assisting with luggage, very pleasant attitude. Front desk was helpful and a competent level of customer service. The room was clean and tidy and excelent air con. The breakfast bar at the restaurant was adequate. Again, the staff were very obliging

    Valluvar kottam is situated in the heart of Chennai (Madras) city in Nungambakkam. It is a monument constructed in memory of great tamil poet "Thiruvalluvar" who wrote two lines songs, which is called "Thirukural". Monument looks like temple-chariot built 40 years back. This place is tourist attraction.Improvement is required in maintenance.

    This concert hall has been around for a long time. Though it is at places starting to show its age, there is still good ambience. The seating is relatively comfortable and the audio facilities are reasonably good.

    Since this concert hall does not have a website, it is difficult to know the daily programs taking place there. There is no online facility to book tickets as well which is typical of almost all concert halls in Chennai. Popular programs get sold out very quickly and one has to go sometimes a day or two in advance to get a "token" for the limited number of seats available for non-members.

    Also known as San Thome Cathedral, one of India's best-known sites containing the Sacred Heart Shrine and a relic bone of St. Thomas, the apostle who arrived on the shores of India in the 1st century AD. A wedding was taking place and the church was full of happy families and flowers; the hymns could be heard in the churchyard, making this a lovely living church. The relic bone of St. Thomas is in a separate underground crypt where several people were quietly praying. A nice place to visit, non-commercial but with a little tea shop for those in need. No entrance fee.

    A divine presence could be felt in this campus. A hidden historical place more important than the St. George Fort, and a long big tradition lives here. I dont know how many of the parishioners from present congregation knows the history and tradition. The cemetery in the campus shows the poor administration by the diocese . A must visit in Chennai.
