From the world’s second longest beach, Marina Beach to Eliot’s Beach in Besant Nagar, there are plenty to explore. Marina Beach is quite popular and therefore remains teeming with people having fun. If you are looking for something quieter, then you should visit the Covelong Beach or the Thiruvanmiyur Beach.
- Take a long Drive in ECR Road – Who doesn’t like long drives? And taking a long drive along the ECR Road is explicably fun. Get a rented car or a bike and start your journey from Thiruvanmiyur and stop at Mahabalipuram. The 40 KMs long ride/drive is sure going to give you some adrenaline rush. One of the “must-do” things when you are in Chennai!
- Visit the Kapaleeswarar Temple – The Kapaleeswarar Temple in Chennai is one of the most popular temples in the country and is dedicated to the Hindu Lord Shiva. It is believed that whoever prays in this temple gets cured from ailments. The temple is situated at a very old place called Mylapore. If you have a fondness for history and old mythological traditions, you should definitely pay a visit here. The place will give you an idea of what rituals devotees follow to offer their prayers to the God. Another plus- the place is perfect for Photography. The timing of the temple is 5 AM to 12.30 PM and 4 PM to 9.30 PM.
- Eat Free sweets at Grand Sweets – For people having a sweet tooth, this is a place nothing short of heaven.
