Chennai (Madras) is a culturally rich city with temples, museums, and churches. A stroll on the Marina Beach, the 2nd longest beach in the world is recommended, especially early in the morning to catch the glorious spectacle of the sunrise. Just a little further on is Fort St. George, which was the British seat of power until Independence. A short walk away is the Kapaleeshwarar temple in Mylapore, dedicated to Lord Shiva. Another famous temple worth visiting is the Parthasarathy temple in Triplicane. Both these temples are centuries old and rich in grandeur and cultural heritage.

As dawn breaks over the mighty Ganges and you watch the faithful absolve their sins in her restorative waters, you’ll discover that India’s powerful spirituality is as tangible as the bank-side temples that are illuminated in the early-morning light.
