Curated Chennai Tour
Chennai - the capital of Tamil Nadu - has consistently topped lists of world cities highly recommended for travelers keen on cultural and gastronomic experiences. While providing a cosmopolitan base to discover the varied delights the state offers, the city itself has landmarks that merit a day or two of intrepid exploration. Our concierge desk crafts tailor-made itineraries to unravel the icons and insider secrets of Chennai. Must-visit spots include the soaring, neo-Gothic style Santhome Cathedral and the Shiva Kapaleeshwarar Temple showcasing the region’s elegant Dravidian architecture with gopuram (gateway), mandapams (pavilions) and other classic features. One of the lesser-known highlights of the tour is the Government Museum – the second oldest in India - housed in the striking Pantheon Complex, exhibiting South Indian bronzes from the 7th-century Pallava era through to modern times, along with contemporary art galleries. At close proximity to the resort, the Madras Crocodile Bank Trust is a big attraction for guests of all ages, while Dakshinachitra in Kanchipuram is a unique cross-cultural living museum of art, architecture, lifestyles, crafts and performing arts of South India.
