Chennai: The charismatic coastal city of South India – Guest post

I am very excited to share my first guest post that I wrote for the Wild Book Company managed by the wonderful Lois Key.  It is a photo essay on my experience in the multifaceted city of Chennai.

True to its thriving cultural, economic and cosmopolitan nature, Chennai is multifarious.  While the city boasts of a flourishing software, healthcare and auto industry, it is equally well known for its fine arts, classical music and dance.  Popularly known as the “Gateway to South India”, the city offers a lot for every kind of traveler which is why it is not surprising that Chennai aka Madras is the 38th most visited city in the world!

  2. Yes…Chennai is a vibrant city and one can never miss the aromatic so very well brewed ‘Kaapi’ (read filter coffee) and the ‘carnatic’ (classical) music at the sabhas during December! Beautiful pics in perfect harmony with the throbbing city Rashmi!

    1. Yes it is a great city; apart from the usual attractions there are a number of ‘untouristy’/unconventional places as well. These sure lend a unique dimension to the city.


  4. Been to chennai back in 1998 and the pictures take me back in time, the marina beach and the museum are fresh memories but I less remember a memorial and the local market close to this was some place where we went to see the light and sound show .. Thank you for dropping by my blogs feels inspired to have quality readers.
