Book Tour and Activities on the Go!



Over a day, you will visit some of the religious landmarks in Mylapore that pre-dates Chennai by at least 2,000 years. With the help of a knowledgeable guide, you get to see some charming everyday sights and sounds.

You have the choice of opting for this trail either in the early morning hours and start by 7:30am or you can spend three hours in the afternoon from 4pm, discovering a land where everyday is marked by coming together of cultural fanfare. While most of the trail is best experienced on foot, auto rides for short stretches are used. As you walk down the streets of Mylapore, spot the commercial angle of the area with jewelers, silk merchants, fruit and vegetable sellers, flower vendors creating a unique bazaar scene. Walk through narrow lanes as old-styled architecture homes and unravel many stories hidden behind mundane daily rituals. Every corner of every lane has a story to tell. There are stores selling regional and religious music, memorabilia andkutcheri.

At the end of three hours over an easy and enjoyable walk, you would have seen some amusing sights around you. With these symbolisms of Mylore to Madras, head towards your pit stop - Sarvana Bhavan, a gastronomic landmark.

Duration: This one day tour would take around 3 hours
