Why travel Chennai?

Chennai, on the Bay of Bengal in eastern India, is the capital of the Tamil Nadu state. It's home to Fort St. George, built in 1644 and now a museum showcasing the city’s roots as a British military garrison and East India Company trading outpost. Religious sites include Kapaleeshwarar Temple, adorned with carved and painted gods, and St. Mary’s, a 17th-century Anglican church.
