I had been with my family (4adults) to Chennai to shop for my wedding, as my fiance stays there currently. We started from Pune on 18 Feb 2015. The journey was via Bangalore and a good experience (in AC transport throughout). The journey is scenic and a relief to the city-eyes. We had booked our stay at Chennai Residency. Knowledge... More

Enjoyed this experience more than I imagined. Everything you need is there within walking distance. The fabrics, the gold, the jewels... you cannot comprehend until you see it. What is great though is that the prices are extremely reasonable. Some prices are fixed in certain shops which makes life easier. Others are flexible so get haggling.

Great place to shop for jewels and dresses. You can get all at very nominal rates compared to other parts of the city.

price have gone up since my last visit 5 years ago but there are huge shops with multiple floors for each age group so allocate at least 2 full days to fulfill your shopping needs. Shops close by 10 PM each day so start your day early.

Prefer not to visit this place. Most congested area with pick pocket and chain snatching. Instead of going for purchases in Ranganathan street, go for purchase to other places.

It is more crowded than the crowded Marina beach in chennai. Some of the shops offer good prices but it is not a comfortable experience to go there unless you don't mind being at a crowded place in hot and humid weather conditions.
