Owner description: If you are looking to soak in the culture of Chennai, the Mylapore Tank and Mandavali area should be at the top of your list. One of the oldest residential parts of Chennai, the tank is a part of the seventh century Kapaleeshwarar Temple. This is also the place where the famous Tamil poet, Thiruvalluvar, was born. If you are spending a few days in Chennai, you will understand the importance of this state figure from the number of references made in signs, names of shops and statues. The quintessential travel phrase, "overwhelming sights, sounds, smells," fits perfectly in this area. The narrow streets around the temple are buzzing with activities. Flower sellers, archaic shops selling temple offering ingredients and such line the roads leading to the temple. A photographer’s dream, this place is best explored in the morning, the chosen time to pay homage at the temple.

I've visited Ram Krishna Math thrice with my parents, it's a very good place to visit with family. The ambiance is commendable, it's green, well maintained, seems like a place far away from the noisy Chennai. I loved it.

The hub of chennai, has a lot to offer from its temples, beaches, shoppings, bars, hotels, restaurants, parks, Churches, cinemas and everything you would like to experience the Chennai way. Mylapore known for its dominant brahmin population can also be a good place to learn the same. Recommend for anyone that comes to chennai.
