Story Trails does a great job of meandering through busy markets, narrow streets and a network of lanes, immersing you in the charming nuances and anecdotes about places in Chennai. There are about nine trails to explore, the favorite being the Bazaar Trail for its energy and delightful chaos. Just the thing to do for a fun, non-intimidating first tryst with the city. Opt for the morning walks because it gets pretty hot during the day. Highly recommended for experiencing the local flavor of Chennai. « less

Many subtle nuances existed in the making of this institution — a symbol of uprising against the British, commitment to theosophy and creation of a strong identity for Indian classical dance forms. The suburban institution offers events that are open to public. It also provides dance classes and a platform for research and studies about traditional Indian dances. « less
